   Preparation Time: 0:30
   Combine first 6 ingredients in a large mixing bowl; stir
   until well mixed. Add shortening, eggs, milk, and vanilla;
   beat mixture 3 minutes at low speed of an electric mixer,
   scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Grease two 9-inch
   round cakepans; line bottoms with wax paper.  Pour batter
   into pans.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes or
   until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
   Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove from pans, and let cool
   completely on wire racks. Split cake layers in half
   horizontally to make 4 layers.  Make fine crumbs using 1
   cake layer; set crumbs aside.
   Beat whipping cream until foamy; gradually add powdered
   sugar, beating until soft peaks form.  Place 1 cake layer
   on cake platter; spread with 1 cup whipped cream, and top
   with 3/4 cup cherry pie filling.  Repeat with second layer,
   and then top with third cake layer.  Frost sides and top
   with whipped cream, reserving a small amount for garnish.
   Pat cake crumbs generously around sides of cake.  (There
   may be leftover cake crumbs.)  Spoon or pipe whipped cream
   around top of cake; spoon remaining pie filling on center
   of top.  Chill well.  Yield:  one 3-layer cake.
