Mellow Cream Cheese Pound Cake

"The BEST recipe for a pound cake! My cousin (Catherine) and her mother (Olivette) make cakes for weddings and birthdays. This is their recipe which has become my favorite over the years. The 3 flavorings and the cream cheese make the cake! Be sure and use REAL butter. Check the date on your baking powder to make sure it is still active and not out-of-date so your cake will rise high."

    I am making a cream cheese pound cake that calls for 3 cups all purpose flour and 2 teaspoons of salt. I only have cake flour, do I still use the 2 teaspoons of salt?
