Here's a cake that truly knows how to celebrate! Margarita Cake converts that festive cocktail into a moist and buttery cake infused throughout with the zesty, zippy citrus flavors of the classic refreshment. Then it's glazed in even more tart and sweet lime flavors, invoking the wonderful sugar rim of the cake's namesake. Margarita Cake seems simple on the surface, but there's a party in each bite!
