1-- Betty cCrocker super moist yellow cake mix
1/2cup Sunny D, Original Tangy
1/2cup Canola Oil
1/2teaspoon salt
1box (3.4-oz) Lemon Jello instant pudding mix
1/2cup water
4large eggs
2tablespoons orange flavored triple sec
1/2cup walnuts, chopped, optional
1/2cup butter
1cup sugar
1/2cup Sunny D, Original Tangy
1teaspoon Orange Extract
1teaspoon Orange Triple Sec
1 or 2-- drops of orange soft gel paste, optional for color


  1. CAKE:  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 12-cup bundt pan or tube pan. I used Baker's Joy to prepare pan. 
  2. Mix all ingredients together on a medium low speed for 2 minutes.
  3. If desired, sprinkle 1/2 cup chopped walnuts in bottom of prepared pan, pour batter in and bake for 35 to 38 minutes at 350 degrees. Begin testing at 30 minutes with a cake tester or toothpick. If it comes out clean, cake is done. It took exactly 38 minutes for me.
  4. Remove cake from over and prick top with a fork; drizzle 1/2 of the glaze over cake.
  5. Allow cake to cool 10 to 15 minutes. Turn onto a plate that won't allow the glaze to run off.  Prick cake with a fork and drizzle remaining glaze over cake. Allow cake to cool completely and set for several hours before serving. The glaze will soak into the cake.


  1. GLAZE:  In a sauce pan bring all ingredients to a slow boil and boil for 6 minutes.
