I used white cake mix, fresh squeezed OJ instead of water, and.... because I thought I had vanilla pudding mix but didn't, I used what I had - jello chocolate caramel chip. I made three batches of the glaze using only 2tbs of sugar and poured half of it into the bottom of the unremoved cake right after it came out of the oven, then the rest over the top after turning it over. It all soaked in quickly. Then another batch according to the directions over the top once it was cooler and that all soaked in too. Too late, out of time, no pretty glaze on top. Took it to a dinner party fearing the worst and everyone said it was AMAZING. Most didn't guess any alcohol at all, those that did didn't guess tequila. The chocolate combined the other flavors so that no one thing stood out, even the lime. So it didn't taste like a margarita but it was very tasty, smooth but complex if you tasted more closely, and very moist. I am almost afraid to make it with the vanilla pudding as written for fear I won't like it as much!
