Strawberry Margarita Cake

An extremely moist cake reminiscent of a Strawberry Margarita complete with fresh squeezed lime juice, Tequila and Cointreau. The Retro Lemon Jello Cake has another incarnation! This is the perfect recipe for those who were not born with the baking gene (yours truly). And even if you are an accomplished baker, you just might appreciate a fun and easy Bundt cake recipe once in a while, no?

The original recipe and a step by step for Lemon Jello Cake and Mojito Cake can be found here. Follow the Mojito Cake recipe, just substitute strawberry flavored Jello, and for the glaze:
  • 2 c. Powdered Sugar
  • 1 T. Tequila
  • 2 T. Cointreau (orange flavored liqueur)
  • 1/2 c. Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
It’s also fun to be creative with the garnish. Some ideas include: Lime wheels or wedges or zest, powdered sugar, and mint. You can also serve the cake with fresh strawberries or a drizzle of strawberry coulis, or strawberry ice cream or whipped cream. I would love to hear your ideas.

  1. LL,
    When am I going to cave and buy these damn Rancho Gordo beans already?
    I made chili tonight w/ canned beans.
    I know I know, those r.g. beans are amazing.
    I will get on line and order them!

    I had 2 margheritas last night w/ petron silver, but no cake!


  2. I just think, you think you don’t have the baking gene, I think you can do just about anything in the kitchen, and do it fantasticly! Love the color of that cake!

  3. You are reminding me that I must bake a bundt cake for thanksgiving. I’ve been seeing so many good recipes. I like yours 🙂

  4. Goodness – you want thoughts about garnish. I fail – this cake just wouldn’t get to the garnish stage around me.

  5. This cake looks delicious!
    Do you think that after eating more than one piece of it one better use a breathalyzer before driving a car? 😉

  6. You’ve turned a retro dessert upside down and made it quite contemporary…there’s hope for us baking-challenged.

  7. Hi Lori Lynn, Just wanted to say “Happy Thanksgiving” to you and your family. I’m sure you’ll have a magnificant dinner tomarrow, and I can’t wait to see some of those panini’s you and your brother whip up!!
    xox, Marie
