    Vino Girl's Note:

    Be sure to eat the worm! I have also made this without the glaze, and just drizzled the liquid glaze ingredients over the cake and topped that with either Cool Whip Lite, or by sprinkling a little confectioners' sugar over top (rather than mixing it all together - I am not a big fan of glazed frostings, although I have reduced the sugar in this one so it's not so sweet). I use fat-free, sugar-free pudding, and I replace 1/2 the oil with unsweetened applesauce.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric




    • 12 gummy worms
    • green decorator sugar (optional)


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350F; grease and flour a 9 x 13 inch cake pan.
    2. 2
      CAKE: Beat together the cake and pudding mixes, eggs, oil, water, 1/4 cup lime juice, 1/4 cup tequila, and 2 tablespoons triple sec in a large bowl.
    3. 3
      Pour cake batter into the pan and bake for 30-40 minutes or whatever your cake mix box recommends; or until the cake is set and tests done (a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean).
    4. 4
      Cool cake for 10 minutes before pouring the glaze over top.
    5. 5
      GLAZE: While the cake is baking, combine confectioners' sugar and one tablespoon each of tequila, triple sec, and lime juice in a small bowl.
    6. 6
      Mix together until smooth.
    7. 7
      Pour over warm cake as directed above in the cake instructions.
    8. 8
      GARNISHING: While the glaze is still wet, sprinkle the cake with green decorating sugar (this is optional, but highly recommended since it really does dress up the cake- if you choose to top the cake with Cool Whip, powdered sugar, or another frosting, put the sugar on after you frost or dust it).
    9. 9
      Serve each piece of cake topped with a gummi worm!

      I made this into an incredibly moist 2-layer cake with lemon curd in the middle. The icing (to which I added much more tequilla than was called) tasted delicious, but looked ugly, so I put a layer natural, lightly-sweetened whipped cream over that and it looked beautiful... hid all the flaws and was a nice contrast to the tartness.

      This was easy to make and very tasty. I got many compliments on this cake and the gummi worms made it fun!
