Suzanne's Story

Now you can have your cake and drink it too! This is a refreshing cool cake that is perfect for a 21st Birthday or Cinco De Mayo!

A non-alcoholic version can be made by substituting cold water in place of the tequila and Grand Marnier.

Cheers!

Why not use the Pillsbury Key Lime cake mix and skip the other mix and the jello?

I made this cake last Sunday for a BBQ and it was a real hit! Question though...I see the 1 1/4 cup of Margarita Mix in the ingredients list, but not in the directions...Winging it, I just added it in with the jello and tequila/grand marnier mixture....worked fine. :-)
