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!

How to Make Adult Margarita Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, blend all cake ingredients and margarita mix together until smooth. Pour cake batter into a greased (cooking spray) 13X9X2 baking pan.
  2. 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.)
  3. Let cake cool completely, about two hours.
  4. To make the topping: Dissolve the Jell-O powder completely in boiling water, then add in the Grand Mariner and tequila; mix well.
  5. 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.
  6. Just before serving, top cake with Cool Whip topping and top with lime zest and lime garnish.
