cornstarch Ingredient Substitutions

Ok, I found a perfect yellow cake recipe here but it calls for cornstarch. I don't have any - what can I use instead of corn starch?

2 sticks butter (8 ounces)
2 cups sugar
1 ¼ teaspoons vanilla
4 eggs
2 ½ cups plus 2 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup milk

From the editor:

You can use cake flour in place of all the flour and cornstarch, for a total of 3 cups.

Alternatively, you could use just all-purpose flour, but the result will be a more dense cake.
