3 1/3 Cups Solid Vegetable Shortening
5 Tb Double Acting Baking Powder
7 2/3 Cups Sugar
3 Tb Salt
11 Cups Sifted Flour
In very large bowl, combine flour, salt, sugar and baking powder, mix well to blend. Cut in the shortening with two knives or a pastry blender until the mixture looks like cornmeal and shortening is evenly distributed.
Divide the cake mix into six equal portions (about 3-1/2 cups each). Place
each portion into a quart glass jar or heavy duty zip lock plastic bags.
Next time you need a cake mix, you will have plenty on hand. Cover tightly and store in a cool, dark place for up to a month, or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Substitute this recipe for any box cake mix, each portion of cake mix will make two 8" cakes or one 13 x 9" cake.

Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?
Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.
Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.
And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!
