Several year ago I made this recipe and placed the cake down stairs in a refrigerator...I thought to hide it. I have no idea how many sneaky trips my husband took down stairs...Upon checking my Orange Slice Candy Cake about 1/2 was missing. When I confronted him with my discovery, of course he was not the only guilty party. I actually prefer it over most others and it is fun to make. Just keep it as much of a secret as possible. It will keep well in the refrigerator for several days...

Wrap cake with orange juice soaked cheese cloth and cover real well with foil. Re soak the cheese cloth with orange juice twice each week. The cake does well to keep refrigerated several days... keep it's location a secret...
