    Icing totally makes this cake. My kids, whom have never eaten pistachio pudding before, loved it! I think I baked longer than necessary, but I run into that all the time with my oven. It still tasted really good. This was really good and as others have said; very easy. We will def be making this Again.

    Oh Carol, Awesome is definitely the word for this cake. I used 3/4 cup vegetable oil and I also sprinkled walnuts on the top instead of pistachios. My whole family loved it. But I knew they would; your recipes have never failed me. Thanks for posting this great recipe.

    Another blow-out recipe Kitten! I prepared this for my 12 canasta ladies yesterday and it was a total success. They all now have the recipe. I've made Pistachio cake before but not your version. The addition of the lemon-time flavored soda was different, the amount of oil and the inclusion of chopped walnuts--all great changes. I allowed the cake to refrigerate for 3 hours before frosting, put it back into the frig till cutting. It's really very attractive made in a bundt pan. Thenka for posting--this will be the ONLY pistachio cake I make in the future!!

    Update 2009 St. Patrick's Day: I made a double batch of this pistachio cake. This time I used the AWESOME frosting you posted. Everyone at work absolutely raved about the frosting. Simply delicious! I made this cake into 24 cupcakes for St. Patrick's day and decorated the cupcakes with light green cream cheese frosting and pistachio nuts. I would have liked to make the stated recipe frosting, but I needed a more stable frosting because the cupcakes were not going to be refrigerated some of the time. The cake was easy to make and VERY MOIST! Excellent recipe and I can't wait to make it with the original frosting. Thank you for another great recipe!

    Made the cake today for a Christmas party. Everyone loved it! I followed the instructions exactly, including the whole cup of vegetable oil; it was delicious! I had to skip the toasted pistachios (burned them while toasting) and instead lightly sprinkled the frosting with red sugar and made a design in the center with halved pistachios. The best thing about this cake, aside from the flavor, is how easy it was to make.
