Excellent cake. Rave reviews from family. I made this twice. The first time my SIL made the glaze and did not bring it to a complete boil. The glaze ran all over the place but still tasted good. The second time when I made the glaze I brought it to a complete boil and then drizzled it over the cake. This hardened the glaze somewhat, and it was excellent. You definitely should bring it to a full boil, though, just like you would when making candy.
Delicious cake! Made this for a Labor Day party and everyone loved it. I didn't have lemon instant pudding mix, so I used vanilla instant pudding mix instead. I think next time I will use orange extract instead of the lemon for more of an orange flavor. I'am also going to try and make a glaze out of powdered sugar, orange juice and orange extract.
The glaze in this recipe was more of a syrup that soaked into the cake instead of a glaze. Delicious none the less, but I will change a few things next time. This cake was moist and yummy! I will definitely make again.
