Skinny Girl Margarita Cake



What kind of cake do you make your daughter for her 23rd birthday? I was looking for something fun and creative and came across this recipe for a Skinny Girl Margarita Cake. We both love these kind of low calorie margaritas and I knew I could make it even healthier by using sugar free pudding and sugar free frosting. It was an easy cake to put together and bake too. The recipe can be found here.
Some candles (3 for 23) and some pretty white sprinkles, added a festive touch to this delicious cake. We all agreed that it did taste like margaritas, with a definite flavor of lime. Each of us had one small piece, before Megan took it to share with her friends.

We celebrated Megan's birthday Saturday morning, with a breakfast of bagels, smoothies and coffee - and of course presents. When your children are older, you may not be with them on their actual birthday, you may not host a birthday party, but you take advantage of the chance to celebrate with them, even if it is in a small way. The point is to make them feel special and loved - no matter their age.

Happy Monday!

  4. Ha! I am a HUGE fan of the skinny margarita. This looks so good and what a fun idea for your daughter. My daughter turns 22 in a couple weeks and I noticed you've been married 30 years? Me too!

    Happy Birthday to your daughter!
