“You can even make an adult version, by adding 3 shots of either rum or tequila to the icing! I make this cake for parties and on birthdays.” - by Tori Belle
Original recipe yields 12 servings
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13-inch cake pan.
- In a large mixing bowl, beat together the cake mix, egg whites, frozen margarita mix, vegetable oil, lime zest, and 1 tablespoon lime juice. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
- Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center shows moist crumbs, 30 to 35 minutes. Cake will be very moist. Cool in the pan.
- To make frosting, beat the cream cheese and butter together until light and fluffy, and stir in the lemon peel and 1 tablespoon of lime juice. Beat in the confectioners' sugar, 1 cup at a time, scraping the sides of the bowl thoroughly with a spatula after each addition. Spread the frosting over the cooled cake.
