Pistachio Nut Cake

Laura Davis


"This cake uses yellow cake mix, instant pistachio pudding and it's covered with a pistachio flavored whipped topping."

So green and sooo good! This cake is extra moist because of the addition of the pudding... which in my book makes it extra TASTY too! I like to double the amount of icing for full coverage. The Test Kitchen
