Ingredients
  Sifted cake flour 2 2⁄3 Cup (42.67 tbs)
  Sugar 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Baking powder 4 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Vegetable shortening 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
  Milk 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs)
  Vanilla 1 Teaspoon
  Egg whites 4
  Pink mountain cream frosting 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Adjust Quantity As Needed)

Directions

1. Grease bottoms of two 9x1 1/2-inch round layer-cake pans; line pans with wax paper; grease and flour paper; tap out excess.
2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, shortening, 3/4 cup of the milk, and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat at low speed with electric mixer until blended, then beat at high speed for 2 minutes. Add remaining 1/2 cup milk and egg whites; continue beating at high speed, 2 minutes longer, scraping down side of bowl often; pour cake batter into prepared pans.
3. Bake in moderate oven (350°) 30 minutes, or until centers spring back when lightly pressed with fingertip.
4. Cool layers in pans on wire racks, 10 minutes; loosen around edges with a knife; turn out onto wire racks; remove wax paper; cool completely.
5. Put layers together with lady Baltimore filling; frost side and top with pink mountain cream frosting. Decorate with whole or sliced maraschino cherries, if you wish.
