  Categories: Soda pop, Cakes, Desserts
       Yield: 8 servings
       3 c  Sugar
     1/2 lb Butter
     1/2 c  Vegetable Shortening
       6    Eggs; Large
       3 c  Cake Flour; Sifted
       7 oz Fresca; Soda Pop
       1 ts Baking Powder
       1 ts Vanilla Extract
       1 tb Lemon Rind; Grated
       1 tb Lime Rind; Grated
       2    Egg Whites; Large
       1 c  Sugar
       1 tb ;Water
       2 tb Maraschino Cherry Juice
       1 tb Light Corn Syrup
     1/4 ts Cream Of Tartar
      10    Maraschino Cherries; Chopped
   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.
