For Cake

  1. Heat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan.

  4. Beat on high speed for 6 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally.

  6. Mix in dry ingredients alternately with milk to the shortening mixture, beating after each addition until batter is smooth.

  8. Bake at 325 degrees for 75 to 85 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.

  9. Cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes before inverting onto a serving dish to cool completely.

For Glaze

  3. Once everything is melted and smooth, let cool slightly.

  4. Spoon over the cake and let stand until glaze is firm.
