    The cake was very dense and a bit dry- next time I would double the filling amount to try to increase the pistachio flavor and make it less dry.

    Cake is very good but the pistachio cream filling makes it extra special. It's so delicious that I wanted more! Everyone in my family loved this cake and will definitely make again. Thanks, Martha.
