Fresca Cake With Maraschino Frosting

Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 8
Categories: Cakes / Desserts

3  cups  Sugar
1/2  cup  Vegetable shortening
3  cups  Cake flour, sifted
1  teaspoon  Baking powder
1  tablespoon  Lemon rind, grated
1  cup  Sugar
1  tablespoon  Light corn syrup
10  each  Maraschino cherries, chopped
1/2  pound  Butter
6  each  Eggs, large
7  ounces  Fresca, soda pop
1  teaspoon  Vanilla extract
1  tablespoon  Lime rind, grated
2  each  Egg whites, large
2  tablespoons  Maraschino cherry juice
1/4  teaspoon  Cream of tartar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 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.
