Directions:
Combine 3 cups flour and salt. Dissolve soda in buttermilk and add orange juice. Cream margarine, sugar, and eggs in bowl until light and fluffy. Add flour mixture and buttermilk/orange juice alternately, beating well after each addition, Combine 1/2 cup flour, candy, dates, pecans, and coconut in bowl; mix until coated. Fold into batter. Pour into greased and floured tube pan. Bake at 300 for 2 hours. Pour mixture of orange juice and confectioners' sugar over hot cake. Cool completely. Remove cake from pan. Chill overnight before slicing.

*I cut the orange slices with scissors and used deep enough container for the flour and would dip into flour as necessary to keep the candy from sticking to scissors. Occasionally would need to wash blades also. I cut the candy in half horizontally and then into smaller pieces vertically.

*Two loaf pans may be substituted in place of the tube pan. I would place both on a baking sheet while baking to prevent burning, giving the time allotted for baking this cake.
