Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until butter and shortening melt. Remove from heat, and pour over sugar mixture, stirring until dissolved. Cool slightly. Stir in buttermilk and next 3 ingredients. Pour into a greased and lightly floured 15”x10” jellyroll pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. (Cake will have fudge-like texture.)
Make the icing 5 minutes before taking the cake out of the oven.
