pistachio oil -- any cake recipes or dessert recipes?

Has anyone substituted pistachio oil for olive oil in a recipe for an olive oil cake ( will this choice be too strongly flavored?); does anyone have a recipe for a cake or other sweet which employs pistachio oil. I am not asking about pistachios generally, just about uses for the oil outside of dressing salads and vegetables or garnishing meats and fish

You might check out Christina Tosi's Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook (which is also a contender in this year's Piglet Tournament of Cookbooks)! She has recipes for pistachio cake that I believe call for the oil. Another route to check out would be middle eastern pastries and cakes...

I remember reading in Dan Lepard's Short & Sweet that you can replace butter with nut oil when making caramel candies for an unusual twist. 100g of pistachio oil is a bit extravgant for a recipe but it seems like it would be quite fantastic for pistachio lovers! (I would suggest replace butter with pistachio oil, pecan halves with pistachio nuts). Here is a link to his caramel recipe:
