As the name implies, this cake won first place at my state fair! This cake always seems to be a hit with everyone that tries it. This cake is also excellent without glaze; instead, I serve it slightly warm with vanilla ice cream.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Blue Ribbon, indeed! This cake really made the Test Kitchen smell wonderful, and the glaze plain knocked our socks off. We're certainly not opposed to a scoop of ice cream on top of this as well. So good!

Patti-in an older post the contributor of this recipe said that she had used orange sweetened Kool-Aid when she couldn't find Tang and says it turned out just fine.
