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.



1 box
white or yellow cake mix
1/4 c
vegetable oil
1 1/4 c
margarita mix
1 box
(3 ounce) box lime jell-o
3/4 c
boiling water
3/4 c
tequila with 1 1/2 ounce of it grand marnier
8 ounce container whipped topping (thawed)

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. I a large mixing bowl, blend all cake ingredients together until smooth. Pour cake batter into a greased (Cooking Spray) 13X9X2 baking pan.
Bake at 350 degree oven for 30-35 minutes and the cake is done. (To test for doneness, insert a wooden toothpick in the center; if it comes out clean, the cake is done)
Let cake cool completely, about two hours.
To make the topping: Dissolve the Jell-O powder completely in boiling water, then add in the Grand Mariner and Tequila; mix well.
Poke holes over cake with a straw. Drizzle Jell-O mixture over entire top of cake. Refrigerate cake for 2 or more hours until ready to serve.
Just before serving, top cake with Cool Whip topping and top with lime zest and lime garnish.
