What would happen if I used the wrong flour?


I bought cake flour and bread flour from the bulk food store. I forgot to mark on the bag which was which. Is there a visual way to tell which is which and how would it affect bread or a cake if I use the wrong one?

    Thanks DrMark, Life would be easier if there was only one kind of flour here.

    Paula, That would be a great idea except I bought the flours at different times .. but I think I'll try the flour feel test that Keljelbel suggested. If I still can't figure it out then I'll take the flour back and ask the bulk store to help me. TY
