Champagne Celebration Cake
4 cups flour
3 cups sugar
5 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 2/3 cups milk
1 cup shortening
1/2 cup champagne
1 tablespoon vanilla
12 drops red food coloring (optional)
8 egg whites
9 tablespoons champagne
Edible carnations

Champagne butter cream
3/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup butter or margarine
1 tablespoon champagne
4 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Grease and lightly flour one 9 inch round pan and one 13 x 9 x 2 pan; set aside. In a very large bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add milk, shortening, 1/2 cup champagne, vanilla, and, if desired, red food coloring. Beat on
low to medium speed about 30 seconds or just till combined, scraping bowl constantly.
Beat on medium speed 2 minutes. Add unbeaten egg whites; beat 2 minutes. (Batter may appear slightly curdled.) Spread 2-3/4 cups batter in 9 inch pan and remaining batter in 13x 9 x 2 pan. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes for round cake and 40-45 minutes for
rectangular cake or until cake tests done. Cool cakes in pans on racks 10 minutes.
Remove from pans and cool completely. Using cardboard circle patterns of 4 and 6 inches, cut one 4-inch and one 6-inch cake layer from the 13 x 9 x 2 cake. If desired,drizzle 3 tablespoons of champagne over the top of each round cake layer. Place the 9-
inch cake layer on a serving plate; frost sides and top. Lining up the backs of the layers,place the 6-inch cake on top of the 9-inch cake; frost sides and top. Repeat with remaining 4-inch cake. If desired, tint any remaining frosting; decorate with tinted frosting and flowers.

Champagne butter cream frosting: In a bowl beat shortening and butter or margarine until combined. Beat in champagne or cream sherry. Beat in sifted powdered sugar and a few drops red food coloring. If necessary, beat in additional champagne or cream sherry to make frosting spreading consistency.
