Light, fluffy and delectably green, this pistachio cake is super easy to make.

Ingredients

For cake:

  • 1 white cake mix
  • 1 small (3.4 ounce) package of pistachio instant pudding
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 3 large eggs

For frosting:

  • ½ cup whipping cream
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 small (3.4 ounce) package of pistachio instant pudding
  • chopped pistachios 

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cake mix and pistachio instant pudding.
  3. Add the water, sour cream, and eggs. Using a hand mixer, stir all ingredients for one minute on high speed.
  4. Spray some oil on two round cake pans. Evenly pour the cake into the two pans.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  6. When the cake is completely cooled, make the frosting.

Make frosting:

  1. In a stand mixer or using a hand mixer, combine the powdered sugar, pudding mix, whipping cream, butter and salt.
  2. Whip everything until you get stiff peaks with the whipping cream (about 3-5 minutes on high). You want the frosting to be thick and spreadable.
  3. Cut the top off of each cake, making them flat. Put the bottom layer of cake on a cake stand. Add about 1 cup of the frosting mixture on top of the cake and spread until even.
  4. Put the top layer of cake on, and apply the frosting to the top and sides of the cake. Embellish the cake with chopped pistachios.
