TURN A YELLOW CAKE MIX INTO AN ORANGE CAKE

1 pkg (2-layer size) yellow cake mix
eggs, according to pkg directions
oil, according to pkg directions + 1 tsp oil
orange juice to replace the water called for in pkg directions
2 tsp grated orange peel, optional

Preheat oven to 350 or the temperature on the cake mix package.
Grease very well and dust with flour, a tube or bundt pan. The tube pan works great.

In a mixer bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs, oil, orange juice, and grated peel, if using. Mix according to the package directions. Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake according to the package directions.

After removing from oven, allow to cool 10 minutes then turn out on a cake plate.

Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
grated orange peel, for garnish, optional

Mix together the powdered sugar and lemon juice until of desired consistency. Add more of either, if needed. Pour over the cake while the cake is still slightly warm so it will drizzle down the sides. Garnish with the orange peel, if using. Place thin, curled orange slices around cake, if desired.
