Deedra's notes for this recipe:
A yummy moist cake! Everytime I have made this to take somewhere everyone raves about how moist it is and there is never any leftovers. If you like lemon cakes and such you will like this one. Out of orange juice...no problem...use Sunny D. Enjoy!

I used granulated (sorry for not putting that on the recipe) and the "glaze" is going to be more like a clear type syrup, not a actual glaze/frosting, it's what makes the cake moist since your putting most of it into the cake and not onto the cake. You don't really see this glaze.

Although I don't see why you couldn't make a glaze with confectioner's sugar and add some orange flavoring to it to top the cake with! Yummy!

And I must confess that the first time I made this cake I forgot to add the pecans to the bundt pan before putting the cake mix in. So I added it to the "bottom" of the cake....that's how I make it all the time now actually. This way my son can just eat from the top down since he prefers no nuts. And I personally thought the "glaze" was too runny and I was expecting a actual frosty type. That's not what this is, so don't fret if it just doesn't seem right.

....the main thing is does everyone eat it up! And around here at gatherings, church functions, etc, it gets eat up or someone is asking to take the last piece home or for me to make them a whole cake for themselves. Which just makes me smile! :)
