Ingredients:  
Cake:
1 pkg. Plain Yellow Cake Mix
3/4 Cup Salad Dressing
1 pkg. Whipped Topping Mix
3/4 Cup Fresh Orange Juice
3 Large Eggs
2 TBSP. Freshly Grated Orange Zest

Glaze:

2 TBSP. Fresh Orange Juice

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350. Lightly spray a 10-inch tube pan with vegetable oil spray, then dust with flour. Shake out the excess flour. Set the pan aside.
Place the cake mix, salad dressing, whipped topping mix, orange juice, eggs, and orange zest in a large mixing bowl. Blend with mixer on low speed for 1 minute. Stop the machine and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat 2 minutes more, scraping down the sides again if needed. The batter should look well blended and thick. Pour the batter into the pan, smoothing it out with the rubber spatula. Place the pan in the oven.
Bake the cake until it springs back when lightly pressed with your finger and just starts to pull away from the sides of the pan, 40 to 45 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and place it on a wire rack to cool for 15 minutes. Run a long, sharp knife around the edge of the cake, invert it onto a rack, and invert it again onto another rack so that it is right side up. Allow the cake to cool completely, 30 minutes more.
Meanwhile prepare the glaze. Place the powdered sugar and orang juice in a small bowl and mix with a spoon until smooth.
Place the cake on a serving platter. Spoon the glaze over the top of the cooled cake and let it drizzle into the center and down the sides. Let rest for 20 minutes fro the glaze to set, then slice and serve.
