Raspberry Swirl Lemon Pound Cake

Do you like lame jokes? K good cuz I’m’a tellin’ one. I get texts from Starbucks; I got one this weekend that was so corny I couldn’t stop giggling. Okay go: Why did the Frappuccino try out for the soccer team? Eh? Eh? It wanted to be in the whirrrrrled cup! OOOooo! See what I did there? Anywaysssss, this recipe made me think of that joke as I said the name to myself and I started giggling all over again. Raspberry swirrrrrled lemon cake that I topped with a pistachio coconut cream. The cake is so delicately lemony with periodic bursts of raspberry; the cream was made from 1 tbsp finely crushed pistachios, 1 tbsp vanilla cupcake flavored coconut butter (sweet spreads brand), 3 tbsp plain Greek yogurt, 1 stevia packet, and water to desired consistency. Come join me; let’s tell lame jokes to one another.
