Tequila Coco Lime Large Martini Cocktail Cake Recipe

Tequila Coco Lime Martini Cake

My wife loves those little chocolate that have sugary tequila on the inside.  So I thought I'd try converting this to a cake for my in-laws 60th wedding anniversary.  We had a nice party at Fox and Hounds where they had a large oversized game of Connect 4 that my Mother In Law loved.  Funny - we allowed her to win a couple of times and I was reminded of playing with my children.  Well we cut into the cake and I was surprised at the reaction.  More than one said it was the best yet.  I think that might be going a bit far - but it did create a nice combo.  Next time I might not shave as much lime rind on top - too much green.

Presentation

Create a tequila glaze using 1 C powdered sugar with 2-3 TBSP of tequila.  I sometimes add 1 TBSP of powdered egg white to help maintain freshness of the glaze.  Drizzle on the cake.  Then use a fine grater to dust the top of the cake with the rind of a lime.
