 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    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       t            Baking Powder
    1       t            Vanilla Extract
    1       T            Lemon Rind -- Grated
    1       T            Lime Rind -- Grated
    2                    Egg Whites -- Large
    1       c            Sugar
    1       T             -- Water
    2       T            Maraschino Cherry Juice
    1       T            Light Corn Syrup
      1/4   t            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.
