Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1 yellow or chocolate cake
5 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
1/2 cup margarine (1 stick)
1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

Bake your favorite yellow or chocolate cake in either one 9x13- or two 8- or 9-inch round cake pans. If using a 9x13-inch pan, cut cake into 2 halves to make 2 layers. Cut 2 round cakes into 4 layers. To fill the cake, gradually add milk to flour in a pan. Cook over medium-low heat on stove until thickened, stirring constantly. Cool. Beat the rest of ingredients in large mixing bowl until fluffy. Add cooled milk mixture and beat again until fluffy. Spread filling between cake layers; store covered for at least 24 hours. Do not refrigerate. Layers can be sprinkled with powdered sugar.
