What are the properties of wheat flour?

A protein called gluten (glutenin) is responsible for the wheat flour's elastic properties. If there is more gluten in the flour, it makes it easier for the flour to have a rough texture and vice versa. High gluten flours are produced from hard wheat. Example of high gluten flour is bread and pizza. Cake flour is produced from soft gluten flour.

Is it possible to make a cake without flour and use vital wheat gluten instead?

No. Vital wheat gluten is the primary ingredient of wheat gluten (seitan), used by vegetarians as an alternative to meat. You can use a little vital wheat gluten to increase the gluten content of cakes, but you cannot make cakes solely with vital wheat gluten. Wheat gluten is used to provide stickiness or sponginess when using whole grains that have insufficient gluten by themselves, or to increase the chewiness of breads. Pure gluten flour or vital wheat gluten or powdered gluten, however, is intended for those who wish to make their own wheat gluten from scratch. It is often mislabelled as gluten flour, which itself has more gluten than flour but not enough to make seitan. See related links, below, for more information.
