  2. I have been looking for Sara Lee orange cake in freezer section of grocery stores. Haven’t found that cake for ages. Do you still make it?

  3. Hi, Carole! Orange Cake is not a product Sara Lee currently sells in grocery stores. For a list of available products, please visit this page:

  4. Hi Carol: You can still bake your pie even if it was defrosted in the refrigerator. Just follow the directions for the frozen pie, using the temperature stated on the box; however, the pie will need less time to bake because it is now thawed. On average, baking time will be reduced by 15 minutes if baking from a thawed state. Be sure to cover the edges of the pie with foil to avoid over-browning.

    If you have any other questions, please give our Consumer Affairs team a call at 1-800-323-7117. Thanks!

  6. In this recipe, what does 133s mean? (I.e. “2 133s powdered sugar”) this is in several areas of the ingredient list and I’m not sure what this means (cups, tbs, tsp?)

  7. Hi Rosemarie,

    We had a hiccup with the recipe, but the measurements/ingredients are updated now. Thank you for sharing this comment!

  8. I purchased your donuts in a box which consisted of 4 chocolate, 4 powdered, and 4 plain, about two months ago at Target in El Paso, Texas. They were so good, but when I went back a couple of times, they no longer have them. Where else can I get them as I noticed none of the grocery stores have donuts in a box and I don’t really care for the bakery donuts.

  10. Hi, I’d like to follow up on Carole’s inquiry about the Sara Lee Orange pound cake. I loved that cake , it actually was my favorite. I haven’t eaten pound cake since, ( I know I’m weird like that ). Just would like to know why my favorite dessert in the world no longer exsist? Reminds me of growing up in Chicago in the 70’s.
