This iconic Watergate Cake hits all the right spots. It’s a pretty amazing cake and every bite is a full-on experience. Super moist, ideally sweet, light, with the perfect combination of pineapples and pistachio. Although, pineapples and pistachio may seem an odd pair if you haven’t had Watergate salad but for all of you who knows what I’m talking about you know that it’s not true. They are one of the best combinations! The first time I had a piece of this cake, I lose my mind a little bit. It’s so freaking good! With bits and pieces of pistachio nuts, creamy frosting, and just the right amount of sweetness, every bite is a delightful cloud of deliciousness.
