Strawberry Margarita Cake

I know some people are anti-mix, but I think mixes can serve a great purpose when you need something good in a hurry. This cake utilizes a regular cake mix along with strawberry flavored margarita mix, and the result is amazing. This cake smells so wonderful, just like fresh strawberries. In fact, if you sliced a few fresh strawberries to garnish the top of the cake, no one would be the wiser, I'm sure. This cake is quick and easy to make, plus it is a taste pleaser.

Strawberry Margarita Cake

1 (16.5 ounce) box white cake mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup strawberry margarita mix (the non-alcoholic liquid syrup)
1 tablespoon lime zest

2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons strawberry margarita mix
1 tablespoon lime juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a fluted pan with cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, oil, eggs, water, margarita mix, and lime zest. Beat at low speed of an electric mixer for about 30 seconds, then beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 40 minutes, or until cake tests done with a toothpick. Cool cake in pan for 10 minutes, then remove from pan to continue cooling.

To make glaze: In a medium bowl, combine powdered sugar, margarita mix, and lime juice. Stir until smooth. Drizzle glaze over cooled cake. Cover and refrigerate any leftover cake.
