Emergancy: Need Orange Cake Recipe Using Yellow Cake Mix

I found a recipe for a Magarita Cake.. it calls for 1 packages of Orange Cake Mix, However the small town I live in ... Orange Cake Mix is not a hot item... so I can't find it. Does anyone have any ideas... I need this for a party that I'm going to this Saturday...

Desperately Searching!!

  1. If you are going to bake the cake, substitute some orange juice for part of the liquid. You could also add orange zest or orange extract to the mix to get an orange flavor.

      How much Orange Extract would you suggest I use...

      The Recipe has quite alot of liquid ingredients... and I dont want to over power the other flavors.

      2/3 cup water
      1/4 cup Lemon Juice
      1/4 cup Tequila
      2 Tbs Triple Sec
      2 Tbs Lime Juice
