Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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