Old Fashioned Cherry and Pecan Pink Azalea Cake Recipe

A gorgeous cake is always the perfect finishing touch on any dinner party, which is why I am so excited to share this old fashion Pink Azalea cake recipe with YOU!


– Shortening – Milk – All Purpose Flour – Sugar – Baking Powder

Not only does it make for a gorgeous table centerpiece, but it is delicious. You won’t find a quick box recipe that compares.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


Mix the shortening and sugar until it has a whipped, fluffy consistency. Add in the milk and vanilla. Set aside.


In a separate bowl, sift the flour, baking soda, and salt well. Carefully add the dry good mixture to the wet mixture above. Mix well.


In a separate bowl, beat egg whites. Fold the egg white mixture into the batter and continue to mix well.


Separate the batter into two bowls. You will leave one bowl plain (your white layer) and will tint the second with a few drops of red food coloring.
