    1Steve's Note:

    A nice Sunny Orange tasting cake with a delicious chocolate orange frosting! The recipe is From Aunt Jenny's Favorite Recipes, a Spry shortening recipe brochure (1930s). The Recipe has been changed to substitute Crisco Brand Shortening as Spry brand shortening is no longer made.
