In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each, then add the lemon zest, almond extract and rosewater. Add the dry mixture and mix until just combined. Pour the batter into the pan and use a spatula to smooth the top. Bake the cake until the top is golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean (begin checking for doneness at 50 minutes). Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn it onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Make the labneh frosting: In a medium bowl, stir together the labneh, sugar, rosewater, vanilla and salt until the mixture is smooth. Cover the top of the cooled cake with the frosting. Top with the reserved pistachios and a few sprinkles of dried rose petals. Enjoy!
