EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

You’ll need about 3 1/2 cups small pretzel twists to get the 1 1/2 cups crushed pretzels.

Cut fat and calories in this cake by using fat-free whipped topping instead of regular whipped topping to frost the cake.

Look for the bottled pale green nonalcoholic margarita mix in the soft drink section of the supermarket. It is usually on the shelf with club soda, tonic water and other mixers.
