This was a very tasty cake - my husband loved it. I do not especially care for yellow cake (I'm very picky about cakes - it has to be excellent for me to eat it, otherwise I'd rather have a candy bar :-)), but this was good. I used vanilla pudding and orange extract because that's what I had on hand. I used an extra 1/2 tsp. of orange extract and Tropicana Orange juice (it's not from concentrate so the OJ has a much better taste). I think it had just the right amount of orange flavor. I made this for a friend's birthday and while my husband loved it, no one else made any comments. I think whether or not you give this an average vs. really good rating depends on how much you like yellow cakes, bundt cakes, etc (my husband loves both, I prefer chocolate). Overall, it was good and I would probably make it for my husband again. I do think you could tell it was a box mix though, and it wasn't as moist as I was expecting. The glaze is runny, so I added just a little cornstarch. Remember - even if the glaze drips off that's fine, it's a GLAZE, not icing. If it's too thick you won't be able to drizzle it.
