  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Put 2 cups of the mixture in a food processor with shortening and process until very fine.
  2. Return processed mix back into the remaining flour, sugar blend and combine well. Portion final mixture equally (about 4 cups each) into four individual containers with tight fitting lids.
  3. Store containers in refrigerator for up to one month, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  4. Each portion will make one 8″ two-layer cake or one 13″x 9″ single layer cake.
