Notes about this recipe

    This cake was somewhat dense but moist and nutty with a hint of almond. The French buttercream had a nice butterscotch flavour that was a good complement to the cake. My pistachios weren't a vibrant green so I didn't use them to decorate the cake.

    Baked this up for a party and it received rave reviews. Moist and flavorful, without being too sweet. The instructions are a bit unusual for a cake, so read through them before starting. I had to sub in Trader Joe's pistachios (unsalted dry roasted) and changed the decoration as a result. This one is a new favorite.
