I made the recipe mostly as written, only a few changes made.. one, I increased the amount of Strawberry Margarita mix and decreased the amount of water, just by a little bit. I disagree that a boxed strawberry cake mix would be the same, or easier. For one thing, I could not find a strawberry cake mix when I shopped. And the margarita mix adds just that slight bit of tangy flavor that makes it taste, well, margarita-ish. The only other change I made was to add fresh halved strawberries on top. Oh, and I tossed the lime zest with a tiny tiny bit of sugar. The cake was a hit.



The cake part tasted like a strawberry cake from a boxed cake mix. I would suggest just making a boxed strawberry cake mix and save the expense of the strawberry margarita drink mix. However, the whipped topping spread on top and sprinkled with fresh lime zest was very attractive and perfect for summertime! Looked impressive and tasted very refreshing and wonderful!



LOVED the idea of a margarita cake, i did a little changes, i made a double layer 9in round cake, and used 3/4 of the can of margarita mix for the cake mix. the remainder of the margarita mix was whipped with the cool whip, and placed between the layers with a layer of fresh strawberries as well. the remainder of the cake was topped with cool whip, the sides fresh strawberries, and the top was the lime zest that was tossed in sugar. BEAUTIFUL cake that tasted GREAT!!! LADIES NIGHT loved it!!
