made these into cupcakes to give away to the neighbors for St. Paddy's day. No need for food coloring, as the pistachio pudding does it for you. I didn't have a white mix but a yellow instead so just added a few drops of green food coloring to the cake batter. I like this better than the Watergate I recipe because of the coconut. I did use a stabilizer (mrs. Oedeker's) since I didn't know if folks would refrigerate right away. Used a store brand version of Dream Whip and it came out perfect. I didn't have lemon-lime carb. soda so used some Aquafina brand Citrus blend carbonated water. Any carbonated clear beverage would do. Placed a cherry atop each cupcake. Looks really cute and festive.

This cake was great and easy to make. I substiituted cool whip for the packaged whipped cream. It was easy to prepare and tasted great! I would make this again.

Very good! Pecans and coconut make this recipe better than the other watergate cakes listed on this site.
