Pistachio Birthday Cake


My friend Heather has taken to baking for our friends in lieu of birthday gifts. It's an ideal solution since we all live in tiny apartments with too much "stuff," yet it makes the day special and leaves each feeling celebrated.


For my day, she made this beautiful Pistachio Cake, and enclosed the recipe as a bonus! It comes from her mother, so Heather has fond memories of this cake growing up. But it's sublimely easy to make, as the two main ingredients are a boxed yellow cake mix and a box of pistachio pudding mix.

Pistachio Cake

1 boxed yellow cake mix
1 box pistachio pudding mix
4 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup club soda

Mix all ingredients together. Flour/grease a bundt pan and pour in batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until done. Ice with a thick royal icing mix of powdered sugar and water.
