This cake turned out phenomenal! I changed the recipe quite a bit, so it would be more like a margarita. I used white cake mix, and used lime juice where it called for lemon juice. I made 2 separate batches of glaze. I also used top shelf liquor; Jose Cuervo and Grand Mariner instead of triple sec. Immediately when the cake came out of the oven I poked several holes in the cake and poured a shot of tequila over it, 2tbsp of grand mariner, and poured ½ of one of the batches of glaze on it as well. After allowing the cake to cool for 15 minutes I took the cake out of the pan and glazed the cake with the other half of the first batch of glaze. Finally, about an hour later I glazed it with the 2nd batch of glaze. I made this cake for a small, Mexican cuisine themed get together at my house, everyone loved it So easy, moist, flavorful and delicious! Will definitely make again!

Made this cake for a fiesta party and every one really liked it. I only changed one thing. I am not a drinker, so I couldnt see spending $25.00 on alcohol to make a cake, when I will never use the tequilla and triple sec for anything else. So I bought the Cuervo Margarita Mini's (the come in a 4 pack for about 6 dollars) and only used one of them in place of the required amount of tequilla and triple sec and it still turned out great! Using the mini's really cut down on the cost and it didnt give it too strong of a tequilla flavor! I had to duble the amount of powdered sugar, the glaze was way too thin

This was my first Bundt cake and was an emergency bake for an office party. I read many of the reviews and decided to use yellow cake, lemon pudding, and substituted equal parts of Bacardi non-alcoholic frozen margarita mix. I don't think the Police Department would go for the Tequila and Triple Sec. I also used the margarita mix as a substitute for the liquid in the icing - except the lime juice. Nothing beats fresh lime! The cake turned out absolutely beautiful! I added more confectioner's sugar to get a nice heavy white icing, and garnised with lime twists. It was an absolute HIT!!! The party honoree took most of the cake home before everyone could eat it up! I'm not a drinker, so my husband and I asked around about wheter it actually tasted like a Margarita. Nothing but nods of approval. This was a great alcohol free alternative.
