Ugh, I hate shortening. Can something else be substituted for shortening?

Use Coconut Oil rather than Shortening! It is better for you and gives the cake extra flavor!

This is great! But how long can this prepared mix sit in the pantry before it goes bad? I’m worried about the shortening going rancid..

I am going to make this today and use butter rather than shortening and if i wanted to make the mix early and store in pantry, I would just leave out the shortening or butter. Whatever it is that you decide on because you could add that when you bake the cake
