    The cake turned out great I did add a little extra shortening since I felt my mix didn't clump enough. The only problem I had with this recipe is that you didn't say when or what to do with the butter or brown sugar in the recipe nor specify what kind of soda to use I assumed baking soda - 1/1/14
