Got this recipe from a cookbook someone I went to school with has put together. I made it for a cookout we had at the lake on Memorial Day weekend & the guys my Husband works with requested it as well. Everyone that has tried it really likes it.

*Side Note*
Since there were many many questions regarding the use of the Liquid Margarita Mix instead of the frozen mix, I subtituted 10 oz of the liquid for the frozen. It came out perfectly.
Also I edited the eggs to say "Room Temperature". This should help with the butter clumping up as well.

Perfect picnic pick! Sweet and fruity with just a slight tang, this is a wonderfully refreshing cake that I'd be proud to take to any party or bake sale. The Test Kitchen
