This cake is tasty and easy to make. It does not, however, taste like a margarita. I haven't a clue how to make it taste that way. I used lime juice for the lemon juice, maybe I'd try adding more lime juice in place of the water, if I was inclined to make it again. I doubled the sugar in the glaze hoping to get a thick, white glaze, but it did soak into the cake and go clear on me anyway, which I did not like. So I'd add more confectioner's sugar next time, and probably omit the triple sec from the glaze so that I could keep the ratio of sour:sweet nice and even while still adding a boatload more sugar. I'd also use lemon flavored pudding next time to ramp up the cake flavoring. It's a tasty cake, but more citrus flavor is better, when you're talking margarita. P.S. I used green food coloring and the specified orange cake mix, and got a nice avocado green colored cake. Thanks for the recipe, everyone enjoyed it!
