Delicious cake! Made this for a Labor Day party and everyone loved it. Fabulous – plus it’s so simple to make! You’d really never know it was a boxed cake – it’s that good! It’s very moist and bursting with orange flavor – what more could you ask for from such a simple recipe!
This cake is perfect when you don’t have time to make a scratch cake but want something that tastes like you did! It baked up perfectly and even though the recipe for the glaze could probably be cut in half it really does add to the cake. Once it was cooled, I couldn’t resist drizzling some melted white chocolate over it for a bit of contrast and to take it over the top. Great recipe!
