This unique cake is sure to be a hit at your next holiday party.
Grease and lightly flour two 9 inch round pans. In a mixer bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, ground cloves, and ground cinnamon. Add shortening, brown sugar and buttermilk or sour milk. Mix until all the flour is moistened. Beat 2 minutes. Add eggs. Beat 2 minutes more. Stir in nuts. Divide into pans. Bake in a 350 degrees F oven for 30-35 minutes. Cool 10 minutes on wire racks. Remove from pans. Cool. Stack and frost.
In a small mixer bowl, beat butter until light and fluffy. Gradually add about half of the powdered sugar, beating well. Beat in the orange juice, vanilla and orange peel. Gradually beat in remaining powdered sugar, then additional orange juice, if necessary. Use to frost between layers, top, and sides of cake.

PLEASE CLARIFY - HOW MUCH BAKING SODA?
IT WAS LEFT OUT OF INGREDIENTS LIST. IS IT
1 tsp.? Thanks - looks like great recipe. I might even add some shredded coconut.
Editor's Note: Hi Joan, I think it should be 1 tsp. baking soda in the ingredients. I've changed the recipe to reflect that.
