Chilled Pistachio Cake

This is my favorite cake in the whole wide world!  Every year for my birthday my mother makes me this wonderful pistachio cake.  My birthday is in the summer, but I have always thought that this is a great cake for spring too.  The pale green frosting is just the prettiest color and would be perfect for Easter.  Not only is this cake moist and delicious, it is very easy to make.  This cake can also be made ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator which makes it so convenient if you are planning a big meal.  If you do make this cake, I hope you love it just as much as I do:)
