Cooling Creme de Menthe Cake

Recipe by LAURIE

My absolute favorite cake of all time! Always a must to make for St. Patrick's Day only because of the color and it tastes great after the corned beef and cabbage.

I love this cake and have made this often. My recipe has a few variations: I add 4 drops of green food color and 5 drops peppermint extract to cake batter also before cooking. To the cool whip I also add 3 drops food color.
