"I love a tasty cake that starts out with a cake mix! I brought this to a dinner party and all of the guest joked that the edges of the dessert plates should have been rimmed with salt! Thanks for sharing Cher!"
"I made this for the finale of a Mexican themed dinner party and it was the hit of the night. This has so much flavor and is not overwhelmingly sweet. Yummy, pretty, and easy, too. It's the perfect dessert combination."
"OMG, This was so easy. I made this recipe into cupcakes for my sister. I added a little green food coloring to give it a frozen margarita look. Made the glaze recipe , but then I made a butter cream icing with a hint of tequila& lime juice, iced the cupcakes, then a few clear& green sugar sprinkles to top them off. They looked beautiful."
"The cake is very moist and delicious. I used a white cake mix with lemon pudding. It baked exactly 45 minutes - perfect. I let it cool exactly 10 minutes in the pan - popped out perfectly. I wasn't such a big fan of the glaze, but others really liked it."
"I used most the tips suggested the cake was GREAT! Very moist! The one thing I would do next time is use a white cake mix (as someone suggested) with the lemon pudding so the glaze stands out more."
"I would have to agree with Kleyt. The cake was very good, but too lemony in my opinion to be called a margarita cake. I also felt the tequila was a bit strong for it left quite an after taste. I'd like to try making it again, but maybe use less tequila and maybe a white cake mix instead of lemon. The cake was very moist and easy to make. Everyone loved it!"
"This was the best cake ever!!! I cooked it in the microwave in Tupperware Stack Cooker in 9 minutes!!! everyone wants the recipe!!!"
"This is a keeper- easy, tastes great... what more could you ask for. I'm kind of a 'drinker' so I can't say it really tastes just like a margarita (u cannot taste the alcohol at all), but it's still awesome! I'm going to make it for my boyfriends birthday cake :)"
"I doubled the recipe for the Tequila-lime glaze, using 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice and 1 tablespoon margarita mix. After cake was baked, I poked holes in the cake with a wooden chopstick and poured 1/2 the glaze over it, let it cool for 20 minutes, then spooned on remaining glaze. GG Maria :)"
"Muy bueno! Made for the office and it received RAVE reviews; had to print mutiple copies of the recipe. I followed a couple of suggestions and made with vanilla cake and poked holes in the bottom (best suggestion). I subbed margarita mix for the both the limeade AND water. Perfect."
"Super moist and delicious!! I will make this again! Thank you!!"
"Very tasty! I'm a food snob, so I made a lemon cake from scratch instead of using a mix. I was looking for a recipe to use up a bottle of rum, so I used banana rum instead of the tequila and triple sec. I soaked cut strawberries in rum for garnish, then spooned some of the berried rum over each slice as I served them. Delish, and every plate was scraped clean."
"Made this cake for Christmas and it was a HIT. I made this with a orange cake mix instead of lemon and left everything else the same. Everyone loved it! Thanks!"
"This cake was not only delicious but it was beautiful. I wish I would have taken a picture. I took this cake to a birthday party for work and was a little concerned that the alcohol flavor would be overwhelming. It was not. I garnished the plate that the cake was on with Lime, dried cranberries and granular sugar. It looked like a margarita on a plate. I added a little limeade to the glaze like others suggested and then drizzled it on there. What a beautiful cake! Thanks!"
"WONDERFUL! What a great finish to a spicey Mexican or Italian meal. I took it to my folks' house for a family dinner, and it was SO GOOD, my dad get mad when I tried to bring the leftovers home! Guess I'll just have to make it again!"
"I had this at a party and it was very good. Nice and moist."
"Delicious and moist cake. I also added limeade to the glaze as well as squeezed the entire lime and added all the zest I could get off the lime because I wanted even more lime flavor and tart to even out all the sugar. I didn't have any triple sec, but I did have margarita mix that I used instead and it worked nicely. I used a good tequila that left just a hint of taste in the cake. Nice cake and I will make it again. Thanks!"
"This cake is delicious. It's so light, but very moist. I added more limeade than was called for, probably an extra two tablespoons. It perker up the flavor in my opinion. I also used some limeade in the glaze, as one reviewer suggested. Definitely a winner."
"This cake was delicious, moist, and easy to make! Thank you so much for posting it!"
"I used Bacardi margarita mixer instead of limeade and I took LoriLou's advice and put some of it in the glaze and this cake got absolute raves. I also took a fork and poked holes in the cake when it came out of the oven and put half the glaze on it in the pan, then waited 10 minutes and took the cake out of the pan and let it cool and then put the rest of the glaze on it. It definitely tasted like a margarita to me. All the guests at the 4th of July party were talking about it. Big hit!"
