Cake Mix



Use any cake mix to package instructions, you can add chocolate chips to the batter if your a death by chocoholic kind of person also (around 1 cup should do it) plus if your a nutty kind of person add 1/2 cup of crushed pistachio nuts!)


I didn't get too fancy with the decorating, it's simple, add a few mini chocolate chips crust pistachios and everyone was mouth-watering to cut into this cake.
