  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons grated orange rind
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • Orange Icebox Pie Filling

Preparation

  1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a mixing bowl. Make a well in center of flour mixture; add oil, egg yolks, and orange juice. Beat at medium-high speed with an electric mixer 3 to 4 minutes or until smooth. Stir in rind.

  5. Spread Orange Buttercream Frosting evenly around sides. (Cake may be frozen up to 1 month completely assembled.)
