Get close to your fav celeb with Gingerbread Celebrity Series cookies

For those into sweets, there are so many wonderful delights–but how about a treat of a favorite celebrity in the form of a cookie? Wonderland Bakery is offering the Gingerbread Celebrity Series complete with cookies decorated to look like a celebrity. The enchanting edition of the treat includes ginger creations of Tom Brady, Kobe Bryant, George Clooney, Johnny Depp, Ariana Grande, Kylie Jenner, Lil Jon, President Obama, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Channing Tatum and Kanye West.

fFor a more traditional cookie, Whoopi Goldberg, host of ABC’s “The View,” after a coast-to-coast search named Wonderland Bakery as having the “Best Tasting Gingerbread Cookie.” Wonderland’s gingerlicious treats have since become a fan favorite. Now a regular customer, Goldberg orders 500 of what she calls “her favorite man” wrapped in a selection of bright colors including turquoise and hot pink for her tree each year. The traditional holiday cookie can be personalized with a choice of icing and button colors or a specially made tin box with a company logo or family photos on it.

While custom gingerbread houses can be created, the bakery offers DIY gingerbread house kits that include frosting, gumdrops, candy canes and sprinkles for the ultimate holiday works of art. Available in three different sizes, the houses can be made-to-order with a family name, business logo or traditional Christmas and Hanukkah décor.

Another holiday favorite, the Cake in a Jar, comes with layers of moist cake and frosting packaged in a mason jar. Decorated with ribbon and customizable labels, the treats are adorned with a spoon for a ready-to-eat gift. Flavor selection includes Snickerdoodle, Pumpkin Spice, Yummy Bunny, Gingerbread Dream, Apple Pie, Peppermint Bark, Cranberry Crunch, Pure White, Southern Princess, Ying Jang, Triple Chocolate, S’more and German Chocolate.

Allyson Ames, CEO and co-founder of Wonderland Bakery, Wonderland Bakery Adventure and Wonderland Lifestyle Brands, is a culinary prodigy. Named “The Best Young Chef in America” and awarded a scholarship to the International Culinary Art Institute of America, Ames started working on her bakery while in school. She created a business plan and secured trademarks for Wonderland as part of a school project. However, when the professor told her she was too young to start a bakery, Ames was motivated to pursue her dream. She opened the first Wonderland Bakery in California with a second location in Downtown Summerlin.

Wonderland Lifestyle Brands was designed using her memories of baking at home as a child. The brand has an array of products to create shared experiences through baking. Ames is also giving back after establishing the Thanks a Million Cookies and Cupcakes Foundation, which contributes to organizations that impact community, quality of life, education, animals and planet.
