After it became a crime, Watergate became a cake
The Watergate cake, retro as shag carpet and innocuous as the Carpenters, is all about ease. The base is a box of white cake mix, a box of instant pistachio pudding mix, 7-Up — remember, this was decades ago in the Midwest — some eggs, walnuts and vegetable oil. Cool Whip is like Aqua Net in its ability to hold — not that the Watergate cake ever lasts long after it’s served. (Rodota has tried the dessert, which the native Californian thinks of as “a pistachio version of olive oil cake.”)Not to be confused with Watergate salad, featuring crushed pineapple and miniature marshmallows along with the pudding mix, Watergate cake is as receptive as Rose Mary Woods to manipulation. The cookbook author asks you to make the whole shebang: cake, pudding, “impeachment” frosting using mascarpone.washingtonpost.com
