Cake Flour to Gluten free Flour

I know how to adjust regular recipe calling for all purpose flour to gluten free, but I have a recipe I want to covert that calls for cake flour. Since cake flour itself has less gluten, should I just do the usual 140 gr per cup conversion? I just hate to waste gluten free flour cuz it's so expensive. I'd like this to come out right.

My best guess would be to convert it the same as regular flour, since even though cake flour and AP flour are a little different, they are not hugely different.

Check on the package to see if they have added quar gum or xantham gum to the mix. This is what replaces the sticky effect that gluten creates. If not they typically recommend that you add 1/8 - 1/4 tsp per cup of flour. I use Jules cake mixes and they come with the gum added.

To answer several questions at once:

It is a standard recipe that I want to convert to gluten free.
My gluten free flour blend already has guar gum in it.

The ones I have tried, both all purpose and cake flour have said on the package that they were a one to one replacement.
