Sift together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. Add sugar gradually to shortening, creaming well. Blend in eggs, beating well after each one. Combine sour cream and soda and add alternately with the dry ingredients. Blend well after each addition. Mix vanilla and food coloring into chocolate mixture and blend into batter. Turn into 2 well-greased and lightly floured 8 inch layer pans. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes. Cool.. Frost with favorite frosting.
