Beach House Baking

An Endless Summer of Delicious Desserts

Photographer Chau Vuong

In Beach House Baking: An Endless Summer of Delicious Desserts, pastry chef Lei Shishak shares her most popular recipes for morning treats, cupcakes, crisps, cookies, pies, ice cream sandwiches, frozen pops, and beverages from her celebrated Sugar Blossom Bake Shop in the charming beach town of San Clemente, California.

At her shop, Chef Lei serves up familiar treats that offer so much more than a sweet dining experience. Inspired by her beach town location and her love of the sand-and-surf lifestyle, she creates high-quality, made-from-scratch desserts that transport you to the islands and resorts you’ve always hoped to visit. Get ready to hit the beach through one hundred recipes, including:

Daybreak Muffins
Light as a Kite Lemon Meringue Cupcakes
Coco Hut Macaroons
Red, Red Wine Cupcakes
Sweet and Salty Beach Bod Brittle
Nantucket Ice Cream Sandwiches
Tropical Tea
And more!

Lei’s recipes in Beach House Baking are designed to take you on an island vacation, turning the task of baking into a virtual journey to a beachside paradise, filled with the sounds and aromas of the places you can go to just get away from it all!
