Xtra Special Celebration Cake

She was baking again...
Here is one of Lydia's recipes to share:


3 c. Gold Medal all-purpose flour
2 c. sugar
1/2 c. cocoa
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2/3 c. vegetable oil
2 tsp. vinegar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. cold water

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 round pans, 9 x 1 1/2 inches, dust with flour. Mix flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Mix oil, vinegar and vanilla. Stir oil mixture and water into flour mixture real hard until well blended, about 1 minute. Immediately pour batter into pans, dividing evenly.

Bake until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, about 35 minutes, let cool 10 minutes. Remove from pans, let cake cool completely.

We found the following recipe online for some whipped frosting:

2 cups heavy creamheavy cream
1 cup sifted confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup sifted unsweetened cocoa
1/8 teaspoon salt

Combine all ingredients in medium bowl.
Re- frigerate, covered, 30 minutes.
With portable electric mixer at high speed, or rotary beater, beat mixture until stiff.
Refrigerate until ready to use.
