Bake in 3 paper-lined 9 x 1 1/2 inch round pans in slow oven (325) for 30 minutes or till done. Cool 10 minutes.

Fill cake with Orange Filling; frost top with Coffee Frosting.
Cream 1 cup butter or margarine.
Add 2 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar; cream well. Beat in 2 tablespoons from the other cup of chilled coffee and 2 tablespoons orange juice.
