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.

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.
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!
