Strawberry Margarita Bundt Cake

I just bought a bundt pan a couple of weeks ago.  I always see all sorts of bundt cakes on different blogs and wanted to try baking one for myself.  I really like how easy bundt cakes can be and how many different types that can be made.
One of the best parts of bundt cakes is the glaze on top.  Not only does glaze taste great, but I really like how the bundt cake does not need frosting.  If you read my blog you may have noticed that I don’t make cake or cupcakes very often.  That is because while frosting is so tasty, no matter how hard I try it always comes out looking like a disaster.  I see all these great cupcakes and cakes with perfect icing and mine never turn out that way.  The best part about the glaze on a bundt cake is that not only is it easy, it also tastes and looks great.
This Strawberry Margarita Bundt Cake was so delicious and has a great strawberry and lime flavor.  The cake is non-alcoholic and uses non-alcoholic strawberry margarita mix.  I really liked the combination of the tartness of the lime with the sweetness of the strawberry, it gave great flavor to the cake and to the glaze.  The glaze also added additional strawberry and lime flavor to the cake.
This cake was so easy to make, it started with a box cake mix and adds additional flavors.  This cake reminds me of spring and summer and would be great at any picnic or for your Cinco de Mayo celebration.  This cake has great flavor, I plan on making this again! I hope that you try this delicious and easy cake!

    My cake didn’t rise very high, as most bundt cakes.

    It is for a birthday, so I haven’t cut it yet. Hope
    all is well inside.

  10. Sounds delicious! Pinned it.
    Noticed the comment above – the box mixes are smaller in size than they used to be. That may be why it didn’t quite rise as much as expected.

  12. Hi, sweet Alyssa, just wanted you to know I made the cake, it was a magnificent hit at my daughter’s birthday luncheon. Tasted great and was such a pretty cake. I borrowed one of your photos of the whole cake as I didn’t have my camera at the time. Come over and say hi. :))

  13. That looks like one awesome bundt cake!!

  14. When I was making it, I noticed that the mix was very, very thin, and my cake ended up about 2″ high. Looking at the ingredients on the box (and it’s an 18.25 oz box, just like the recipe calls for), this recipe calls out for a good bit more liquid than the box recipe calls for (this recipe calls for 3/4 cup margarita mix, 1/2 cup of water, and 1/2 cup of oil; the box calls for 1 cup of water and 1/3 cup of oil). The cake tasted great, just ended up very dense. Next time, I’m trying it with 3/4 cup margarita mix, 1/4 cup of water, and 1/3 cup of oil, I’m betting it will be much better.

    • Did it work better for you? Mine came out s little flat and dense wroth the original directions. Just wondering if your changes worked better?
