Strawberry Margarita Cake If you are looking for a cake that is perfect for Taco Tuesday or Cinco de Mayo, this Strawberry Margarita Cake is the best. With all the best flavors of a margarita, this cake has strawberry and lime flavors, not to mention tequila. Pair this cake with tacos, enchiladas or any Mexican feast for the best dinner ever.
Using a mixer, cream the butter and sugar together.
Beat in the egg whites, milk and vanilla.
Slowly add in the flour mixture until it is combined.
Next, add in the lime juice, tequila, and lime zest.
Divide the cake batter between 3 prepared pans.
Bake for 25 minutes or until the cake is done.
Allow the cakes to cool completely.
While the cakes are cooling, beat together all of the frosting ingredients and then place one cup of frosting into a piping bag and set it aside.
DECORATE THE CAKE Use a cake leveler, remove the domes from the cakes.
Place the first cake layer on the cake board and smooth 1 cup of frosting over the cake.
Place the 2nd layer on top and repeat.
Add the 3rd layer on top and frost the entire cake.
Use the piping bag to pipe frosting on the top of the cake.
Place slices of lime and strawberries on the cake.
Add lime zest over the top of the cake.
Place into the fridge for an hour to allow the frosting to harden up a bit and then cut it into slices to serve.
IS THIS SAFE FOR KIDS TO EAT?Whenever someone asks me this about a recipe that has alcohol in it, I have to say this is a personal choice. This cake has 1 cup of tequila in the cake batter. Some people will say the alcohol will burn off and leave only the flavor. Other people are not comfortable with the idea because there is no way to know for sure.
DOES MARGARITA CAKE HAVE TO BE REFRIGERATED?Since this cake has fresh fruit in it and on top, I like to store it in the refrigerator. If the cake will be eaten, fully, with no leftovers in a few hours of serving, it can be left out. However, I would recommend storing any leftovers in the refrigerator.
