Nice recipe. Although I'm not sure how a margarita tastes, I would have enjoyed more lime flavor in the cake. Used a confetti cake mix for the multi-color effect and followed the changes many gave such as using all lime juice & lemon pudding. Only used 1/2 of the Grand Marnier (or Triple Sec). Added about 1/3 cup sour cream to make it heavier. Glazed it hot (poked holes in cake) right out of oven. I made sure I loosened cake so I could get it out of pan. Even so, I think the sugary glaze made it stick to the pan so next day I had to use a spatula to ease it out of pan. (I do like the idea of using a "second glaze" - maybe making a double recipe - first time right out of oven and next time after it cools.) Refrigerated it overnight in pan with glaze on it. Next day took cake out and turned it over. I made a cream cheese lime frosting with conf. sugar, juice of one lime, 1/2 pkg of cream cheese and a little cream. Spooned it over the top. Helped my sweet tooth and desire for lime flavor. Not a big fan of boxed cakes, but this came out nicely. 4 1/2 stars.
