Lei shares the most popular recipes from her celebrated Sugar Blossom Bake Shop in San Clemente, California. Let her tropical tea transport you to the Caribbean, her s’mores cupcakes to an oceanfront campfire, and her sweet and salty beach bod brittle to picturesque New England shores! You too can live the sand and surf lifestyle while indulging in over one hundred recipes, including morning treats, cupcakes, crisps, cookies, pies, ice cream sandwiches, frozen pops, beverages, and more!
The maple pecan sticky buns had me at the first glance. This was a perfect recipe for my son and my husband. They absolutely love pecans. We will be making this one again for sure. The pictures are delightful. The recipes are fairly easy to follow and definitely remind me of the beach where I grew up.
With greats like Champagne Raspberry pops to Orange Pekoe Blackberry remind me of summer nights on the beach under the moonlight. Each recipe starts with a due bit about the history of the recipe or the symbolism of it. Though, not all recipes in this book would be perfect for the beach they would be wonderful for a simple party or enjoying at a family dinner. Like the Banana Pecan Cupcakes with Honey Buttercream. These would be great at a monkey themed birthday part as long as no one is allergic to nuts.
What I really found myself enjoying from this book was that the recipes can be used over and over for events. That’s always a plus in my book. You don’t have to be a novice baker to own this book. Even though the author clearly is with her shop in San Clemente. Of course the author had me when she mentioned La Jolla which is a place I grew up near. Her ice cream sandwich to pair with the name is almost a decadent perfect fit. This is a fantastic book for the baker in your family. I know just who I will be sharing mine with.
