Margarita Cake

I do not normally go for citrus-y desserts. I am of the mindset that dessert should be chocolate or it is worthless. However, I really liked this cake. The original recipe called for an orange cake mix. I know that I definitely saw orange cake mix at the commissary on one of the end of the aisle displays a couple weeks ago, but of course, they had none in stock when I needed to buy one. So I used a lemon cake mix because I remember seeing in the comments that someone did this and it turned out fine. So, if I do make this again, I will try it with the orange cake mix instead. But for this, I just juiced an orange into the mix to add some orange flavor.

1 box lemon cake mix
1 3.4 oz vanilla pudding mix
4 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup water
1/4 cup lemon juice
juice of 1/2 orange
1/4 cup tequila

1 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp tequila
juice of 1/2 lime

Mix all the cake ingredients and beat for about 2 minutes. Bake it at 350 in a greased/floured bundt pan for 45-50 minutes. Drizzle it with the glaze before serving. I didn't take a picture of this but will when I have a leftover slice tomorrow : )
