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:
Light as a Kite Lemon Meringue Cupcakes
Coco Hut Macaroons
Red, Red Wine Cupcakes
Sweet and Salty Beach Bod Brittle
Nantucket Ice Cream Sandwiches
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!

"I was always impressed with Chef Shishak's ability to create simple, tasty pastries. Beach House Baking gives readers the confidence to make easy, yet delicious recipes inspired by life on the water. Packaged nicely with tips and tricks, as well as anecdotes about her favorite beach spots, Beach House Baking will conjure up images of sun, surf and sand. The S'mores Cupcake is a favorite and hits all the flavors of what a beach bonfire dessert should taste like." --Chef Michael Mina, James Beard Award-winning chef and CEO of Mina Group "Lei knows that less time in the kitchen means more time at the beach. This book is full of sweet, simple recipes that let you enjoy both." --Kathleen King, award-winning baker, author, and founder of Tate's Bake Shop
