Ingredients
  • Syrup:
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced
  • 1/2 cup super-fine sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup tequila
  • Icing:
  • 1/2 box confectioners' sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 lime, zested
  • 1 cup tequila
  • 1 cup lime juice
  • Store bought angel food cake
  • Store bought candied lime zest
  • Whipped cream
Directions
  • To make the syrup, combine all of the ingredients except the tequila in a saucepot and bring to a boil, stirring constantly until the sugar has melted. Remove syrup from heat, add the tequila, and cool to room temperature.

  • For the icing, place the sugar, salt, and lime zest in a bowl. Add the liquids a little at a time until the mixture is just loose enough to pour. Be careful not to add too much liquid, but if you do, add more sugar as needed.

  • To finish, hold the cake upside down and cut a little well around the bottom of the cake. Pour half of the syrup evenly over the cake. Turn the cake over, and using a pastry brush, paint the cake with the remaining syrup.

  • Drizzle the icing over the cake. Sprinkle with candied lime zest. Slice and serve with whipped cream.
