Sugar Blossom Bake Shop was founded by Chef/Owner Lei Shishak. Lei began her culinary career in New York City. While working in finance, she took a weekend job decorating cakes at her neighborhood sweet shop which quickly sparked her desire to learn more about pastry and baking. She enrolled at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY. Graduating at the top of her class with honors, she went on to work in Sun Valley, ID, Los Angeles, CA and most recently Dana Point, CA as the Executive Pastry Chef of Michael Mina’s Stonehill Tavern at the AAA Five-Diamond St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort. After over three years there, she felt compelled to open up a neighborhood cupcake and cookie shop in her favorite beach town of San Clemente and thus Sugar Blossom was born.
