"I give this cake 0 stars. I am an experienced baker and made this cake twice today. Both times with fresh ingredients and both times while cooking it looked wonderful, but when I took it out of the oven within three minutes it fell. I am so disappointed today being St Patrick's day I wanted a green dessert and this sounded like a good one. Any suggestions???"

"I am a pistachio fanatic and love almost anything made with it. This is going to be made again and again in my house. Everyone loved it. You can dress it up as mamaknowsbest said below but I really don't think it needed it. It was delicious on its own and was really good for breakfast the next morning. :-)"

"This is a fantastic cake that is moist and light! A great alternative to heavy deserts. A simple way to dress up this cake is with a light frosting. One box of pistachio pudding mix, 1 1/4 cups 1 % milk and a package of Dream Whip. Whip for a few minutes with the electric mixer until soft peaks form. As a volunteer food editor for Taste of Home I enjoy making recipes that guests ask for seconds!"
