  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening

Follow cake mix directions for baking the cake.

Combine butter, shortening, and cream cheese. Mix on high until smooth. Add vanilla and salt. Mix well. Slowly mix in sugar (try it as you add it you may want to use less).

The cakes are 13x9 inches. Bake and allow to cool. Apply a thin layer of frosting to each and refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes or until frosting is firm. Cut one 13x9 inch cake into two pieces, leaving one larger than the other stack pieces on top of the second 13x9 inch cake. Frost and decorate.
