This weekend Hayley is headed up to Mount Desert Island to surprise a dear friend in celebration of her birthday. The woman of the weekend is an effervescent, generous, and just plain fun gal to be around. She is wildly talented when it comes to anything creative and has the most amazing green thumb. You’ll likely see her fine work pop up on Sea Salt + Chambray in the future.
This Orange Almond Cake with Orange Blossom Buttercream, photo and all, from Adventures in Cooking, is so well suited to her with it’s bright and sophisticated flavors but simple presentation topped with a dollop of whimsy. Even though I’m not headed to Bar Harbor for the festivities, I think I may bake this scrumptious looking cake over the weekend and raise a fork to the birthday girl from afar!
Wherever your weekend takes you, may it be delicious! Blair
