Description

This enchanted forrest cake gets a surprising bite of flavor from an unusual ingredient. Zucchini gives this cake a tender moistness and a unique flavor profile. The zucchini is accented with earthy pistachios and tart cream cheese frosting flavored with lime juice for a truly irresistable dessert. The zucchini and pistachios give the cake a vibrant and rich green color, which is where it gets the name enchanted forrest cake.
