Twinkie molds (shape your own with aluminum foil )

Non-stick cooking spray

Cake

Whip egg whites on high until stiff.
Add cake mix and water, and beat on medium speed until completely blended, about 2 minutes.Divide batter evenly among the baking molds and bake at 325F  until cakes spring back when touched, a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, and cakes are golden brown, about 20 to 22 minutes.Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes; then loosen from the sides by running a knife along the edge of the pan. Invert onto a rack, remove cakes, and cool completely.

Beat together the shortening and margarine with mixer until well combined and creamy.
Add the powdered sugar and beat until completely light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
Add the vanilla and beat for another 2 minutes.
