Beat shortening, sugar, and brown sugar in large bowl with large mixer on medium speed until creamy. Add milk and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Combine flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt in separate large bowl. Add gradually to shortening mixture, beating until well blended. Cover and chill for one hour.
