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 would suggest replace butter with pistachio oil, pecan halves with pistachio nuts). Here is a link to his caramel recipe: http://www.guardian.co...

There are 57 recipoes indexed on EYB with pistachio oil http://bit.ly/we5bbb If you just want to see the sweet recipes, click Desserts in Filter by courses on the right. Momofuku Milk Bar has a Pistachio cake and a Pistachio layer cake with the oil.
