Orange TANG Cake

It's an orange cake made with TANG with orange TANG frosting. Anybody got any ideas on how to make one? I had it a long time ago at a Tupperware party. I'm thinking a yellow cake mix and adding some TANG to it might work.

Gail I found this on the web, I've never made it before:

Orange Tang Pound Cake

1 pkg Duncan hines Yellow Butter Pound Cake Mix

1/2 cup orange tang or drink you prefer to use

1/2 cup oil

Dash Salt

1 pkg instand lemon pudding

1/2 cup water

4 eggs

For the cake: combine all the ingredients listed above and beat on a low to medium speed for atleast 2 minutes. You will then take the prepared mixture and pour it into the bunt pan that has been well greased or sprayed with cooking spray. Take some of the chopped nuts (pecans) and sprinkle them into the bottom of the bunt pan. bake the cake for a full thirty minutes.

While the cake is baking prepare the Orange glaze.

1 cup sugar

1/4 cup orange juice

1 stick oleo

1/4 cup water

Boil this mixture for atleast 6 minutes. Be sure to put the cake onto a container that will not allow the glaze to run off creating a huge mess. Once the cake is done baking pur this glaze over the top and do not make the glaze ahead of time or save for later.

Once again, this is a very easy cake to make and it tastes amazing! Kids and adults are sure to love it. If you want to, you can skip the pecans and not add them to the cake. It is totally up to you.

Do they still make Tang? I haven't thought about that in years.

Thank you all for your comments and recipes. I bought some TANG at Wal-Mart Supercenter. I think it was by the Kool-aid or powdered drink mixes. My sister-in-law was looking for a Hot tea recipe with TANG. That was when I remembered the cake and went looking. I, too, thought they had quit making it.
