“From "Cake Mix Magic." This cake uses a lemon cake mix, lemon-flavored gelatin mix and chopped pistachio nuts to marry up two divine ingredients. You can use a simply lemon juice and confectioner's sugar glaze on top or thin out some store-bought lemon frosting with a little milk and warm until it is a drizzling consistency. You can even opt to go icing-less because this cake is delicious on its own!”
