    For Frosting: * Opts 1: 1 (3.4 ounce) package instant pistachio pudding mix 1 pint of heavy whipping cream * Opts 2: 16 oz. container of Cool Whip mixed with 1 (3.4 ounce) package instant pistachio pudding mix * You can change up and add other ingredients as you wish such as chocolate chips and cherries. I've also changed the cake and puddng mixes to make other flavors.

    * FYI!!!!! Never use pudding with a cake mix that already has pudding in it. That's what makes it fail. Duncan Hines, works every time!
