Homemade Cake Mix
3 1/3 cups solid vegetable shortening
5 Tbsp. double acting baking powder
7 2/3 cups sugar
3 Tbsp. salt
11 cups flour

In a very large bowl (I use a plastic dish pan), combine dry ingredients. Mix until well-blended. Cut-in shortening, mixing until well distributed.

Divide into 6 equal portions (about 3 1/2 cups each) and seal in quart-sized zip-lock bags. I don't know if it's necessary, but I keep these in the freezer. Makes 6 (9x13) cakes.

For Yellow Cake:
1 pkg. homemade cake mix
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk

Mix all together as you would a store-bought cake mix. Pour into greased 9x13 pan (or two 8" round pans). Bake 350 for 30 - 40 minutes, or until cake tests done.

For Chocolate Cake:
Combine yellow-cake ingredients, adding 2 Tblsp. milk and 2 squares melted chocolate.

For Spice Cake:
Combine yellow-cake ingredients, adding 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. allspice, and 1/4 tsp. cloves.

For White Cake:
Use 3 medium egg whites in place of the two eggs.
