Ingredients

3 cups sugar
½ pound butter
½ cup vegetable shortening
*
6 large eggs
large
3 cups cake flour
sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon lemon zest
grated
1 tablespoon lime zest
grated
*
Icing
2 each egg whites
large
*
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon water
2 tablespoons maraschino cherries
juice
*
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
*
10 each maraschino cherries
chopped
7 ounces lemon-lime soda
*

Directions

Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃).

Cream together sugar, butter and shortening.

Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Add flour and Fresca alternately.

Add baking powder and when mixture is fully creamed, add vanilla and fruit rinds.

Pour into greased and floured 9 X 13-inch Cake Pan.

Bake 1 hour or until cake tester comes out clean.

FROSTING: Mix all ingredients except cherries and beat constantly while heating in the top of a double boiler.

When thoroughly mixed, thick, and spreadable, frost cake.

Decorate top of cake with chopped maraschino cherries.

NOTE: Since Fresca is available only in limited areas if at all, 7-up may be a good substitution, or any lemon-lime drink.

Also, since the problem with the cherries has been resolved with a different food coloring, you may use the new ones or use gum drops instead for the garnish.

Syrup from a can of dark cherries might be substituted for the Maraschino cherry syrup.

many store brands include a grapefruit flavored soda, which is what Fresca tastes like.
