I originally made this cake for a special cake walk at my daughter's school. I had to make another one for home because it was such a hit. Instead of the pistachio pudding, I used cookies and cream. The ganache was delicious. You need to keep it in the refrigerator (mine was 90 minutes) and watch it closely. Once it sets, it can be left out at room temperature. It spreads just like a soft fudge and is so beautiful. I plan to make this again for the holidays as I promised my girlfriend one!
This cake was SO SIMPLE to make~ though it looks like you slaved over it! I used 8" pans for height and used Wilton Mossy Green coloring paste to acheive the "Franken-green" color in the cake and filling! Everyone RAVED about it!
I have made this cake for my husband's birthday for the last 4 years! It is absolutely delicious, and my secret is I make the devil's food and white cake from scratch. It is a little more work, but everyone raves about it! Tell someone they are very special by making them this cake. They will love you for it!
