What frosting goes with pistachio cake?
I like to keep pistachio cake frosting very simple so that the flavor of the cake shines through. It’s a simple whipped cream. You can use homemade or store-bought whipped cream like Cool Whip.  If you are fond of buttercream, you can use my American buttercream frosting recipe or this cream cheese frosting.

Here are some TIPS for the BEST pistachio cake recipe:
DON’T use butter instead of oil since that makes the cake very heavy and dense.
DON’T use fat free milk because that doesn’t add any moisture or flavor to this cake.
You can make pistachio cake with white cake mix or yellow cake mix but I prefer the YELLOW cake mix since it has a better flavor.
DON’T over mix the cake because that makes a tough cake.
Make sure to COOL the cake completely before frosting it or else the frosting will melt.
To make pistachio cake with sour cream, replace milk with 1 cup sour cream and reduce oil to 1/2 cup. This makes a firm cake.
Instead of using frosting, you can also make pistachio cake with glaze. Just pour the simple sugar glaze on top of the cake. You can add some zest or flavorings to it too.
