Great recipe! I prefer to use a tub of Cool Whip mixed with one packet of pistachio pudding for frosting as it has a stiffer consistency. Rave reviews on this cake!

CAKE IS VERY MOIST & EASY TO MAKE. I DIDN'T REALLY SEE THE NEED FOR ALL THE OIL & EGGS. OVERALL THE CAKE IS GOOD. I USED FAT FREE COOL WHIP INSTEAD OF THE DRY DREAM WHIP FOR THE FROSTING/TOPPING.
