St. Patrick's Day Pistachio Cake

I hit rock bottom with my Sriracha addiction this morning. I was leaning over the sink at 9am with a rolled up piece of gouda in one hand and a bottle of Sriracha in the other when my painter asked what the hell I was eating. I don't even put the bottle down when I eat anymore. I have a death grip on the bottle so I can squirt it on every single bite. I've gotten to the point where I can't even see what I'm eating. And honestly it doesn't even matter. I could be eating a rock and I wouldn't know. I did manage to photograph this cake in between bites. St. Patrick's Day Pistachio Leprechaun Cake below y'all!
