Thanksgiving Cake
serves 12-14

2 Cups flour 
1 1/2 Cup sugar 
1/4 Cup shortening 
1/4 Cup butter, softened 
1 Cup milk 
3 1/2 tsp. baking powder 
1 tsp. salt 
1 tsp. vanilla 
3 eggs 

orange food coloring
2/3 cup water
12 cups confectioners sugar (powder sugar)
1-1/4 cups shortening
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon almond flavoring
1/2 teaspoon clear vanilla flavoring
1/4 teaspoon butter flavoring 

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour 13x9x2-inch pan.
Beat all ingredients on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on high 3 minutes. Pour into pan. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes, remove from pan and cool on wire rack. 

Mix 4 cups of sugar with water, one cup at a time, beating after each addition at low speed. Alternately add shortening and remainder of sugar. Add salt and flavorings; beat at low speed until smooth. It is best to use a heavy duty mixer. To avoid powder sugar from going all over cover your bowl with a towel while mixing. Mix in orange color paste or 2 drops of yellow and 1 drop of red food coloring and mix.

Spread frosting on top and sides of cake. Sprinkle autumn colored candies on top.
