    I had pistachio cake for the first time on St. Patrick’s Day 13 years ago when a coworker made it for an impromptu celebration. Pistachio has long been my favorite ice cream flavor, but I had never heard of it flavoring a cake. The cake has become one of my favorite things to make for St. Patrick’s Day even though the only relationship is that it is green.
