This is a winner! I did make a few tweaks, however. I used an orange cake mix by Duncan Hines, vanilla pudding as was suggested by another reviewer, and orange extract instead of lemon. For the frosting I made a whipped cream cream cheese frosting (my absolute FAV!) and piped it onto the bundt cake. It got rave reviews and requests for the recipe. If you're interested in the frosting recipe it's as follows: Mix 1 - 8 oz pkg softened cream cheese with 1 cup powdered sugar, 1/8 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp almond extract and 1/2 tsp orange extract. In a separate bowl, whip 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream until it forms peaks. Fold into cream cheese mixture into whipped cream. I also added some orange zest to the frosting and garnished the completed cake with orange zest as well. (Would have added some to the cake batter, too, but forgot). Can't wait to have a reason to make it again. If I made it for just the hubby and me, I would end up eating it all myself!
