margarita cake

we celebrated the birthday of a sweet friend last weekend with margaritas & a margarita cake. even though it didn't rise much, this 2-layer cake was still so moist and delish.  i added some green colored sugar and limes to make it extra pretty! {if you don't have colored sugar on hand just make your own... it's super easy. put 1 cup of sugar in a tupperware or jar with a tight lid. add 2 drops food coloring and shake it up like crazy for a minute. add more drops if the color is too light.}

margarita cake
1 box white cake mix
4 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
10 oz can margarita mix, thawed
1 tsp lime zest
