2  c  Plus 2 t flour
3    Eggs
1 1/2  ts  Baking powder
1  c  Milk
3/4  ts  Baking soda
1  tb  Vanilla extract
3/4  ts  Salt
3  c  Whipping cream
2  c  Sugar
1/3  c  Sifted powdered sugar
3/4  c  Cocoa
25  oz  Cherry pie filling
1/2  c  Shortening

Combine first 6 ingredients in a mixing bowl. Stir until well mixed. Add shortening, 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 for 30 to 35 minutes or until a wooden toothpick 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 2nd layer, and then top with 3rd cake layer. Frost sides and top with whipped cream, reserving a small amount for garnish. Pat cake crumbs generously around sides of cake. Spoon or pipe whipped cream around top of cake; spoon remaining pie filling on center of top. Chill well. You can add several layers as required by baking more batter.
