This "CAKE PART" of this recipe Is "Very Very Old", Only the Cake's origin is pre-1924, was in granny's Modern Pricilla Cookbook, along with her Hand written Sauce, Which I have revamped to My own original.
My Grandmother was famous for Having stale Cake, and Making it Like fresh by making all kinds of toppings from little or Nothing, with just a little flavorings.

This Hint of Orange Sponge cake brings back those memories.
The Orange Toppin just tops it off perfectly.
Cake Freezes well.
