this was great! I had to make some minor changes...I couldn't find a orange cake mix in my area so I used a lemon was yummy. The only thing I would change in the future is to increase the glaze so that the cake soaks up more juice! Thanks for sharing.

oh my goodness. this was so good. i say was because we ate it in one day. very moist and a really great orange flavor. we ate a few spoonfuls of the glaze before we glazed the cake it was so good.

Oh this is a delicious cake and it's presentation can be mind-blowing once the glaze is set. I had made this few months back and wow, it was so tempting and so very tasty. Everyone(kids and adults), all savoured it! A 'must-try' recipe for orange lovers!
