Christine's Story

Another recipe from the old church cookbook mom put together. This can be done with any flavor cake mix and jello, and you can change the juice in the glaze to suit the flavors you choose for the cake. This recipe was from Alice Hunsucker. Enjoy!

I don't. Wish I did! This was from one my mother put together when I was about 9 or 10...

Christine, this cake recipe sounds very delicious! I'm printing it and hopefully I will make it soon.
Just you still have any of the Church cookbooks? I will buy one, if you still have them.

Sounds good to me, Sherry! Glad you enjoyed! You're welcome!

I'm not hot for Rhubarb...think I could leave it out or substitute something else?

I made your cake today with a few substitutions. I could not find an orange cake mix anywhere in Fairbanks, Alaska. I used a white cake and substituted orange juice for the water. I also topped it with my Pineapple Rhubarb Marmalade (see my recipe on JAP). Delicious! Thank you for sharing.

Interesting the medical field is aware of the problem, yet there isn't much warning out there about it. Just the same old, "it's not good for you." Put some of those kinds of stats out there (your kids will have a heart attack in its 20's) and you'd get at least some people to change their ways!
