I used butter instead of shortening as that is what i had on hand. I also used two small oranges again to what I had on hand, and since it doesnt state the amount of juice I figured it would be okay. After baking I cooled then wrapped well in foil overnight. This is a very good recipe, the only thing is I found that it just could have been a little sweeter . Next time I will up the sugar by 1/2 cup.
