Whoopi Goldberg finds her Favorite Gingerbread Cookie in Wonderland
Wednesday, February 11, 2009  12:52:00 PM

by Allyson Ames

Wonderland Bakery, a specialty bakery with a fairy tale beginning (, has won the heart of the mayor of Newport Beach, the governor of California and now Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of ABC’s "The View."

Whoopi was on a mission to find “The Best Gingerbread Cookie” that was reminiscent of her childhood memory of this classic treat. There was a coast to coast search and taste test with the final results broadcast on ABC’s ‘The View,’ Wednesday, December 10, 2008. Whoopi officially declared ‘Wonderland Bakery’s Gingerbread Cookie’ as her favorite.

“This is it!” says Whoopi “I wanted him (gingerbread cookie) to have that groove when you eat him. Wonderland made the cookie with the right combination of gingerbread and raisins, I love this cookie!”

It will be a very Merry Christmas for Wonderland Bakery with an endorsement from Whoopi on ABC’s ‘The View’ which has an audience of 4.67 million viewers weekly.

Whoopi’s cookie was created by 23 year old, Chef Allyson Ames, co-founder of Wonderland Bakery. The story is as sweet and satisfying as her delectable cookies, cupcakes, cakes and desserts. Wonderland Bakery is just three years old, but already the young company is spreading its wings with the expansion of the Wonderland Bakery Collection and a line up of products inviting aspiring young chefs everywhere to get in on all the fun with her ‘Bake Memories at Home’ collection including Red Velvet cupcakes, gingerbread cookies, fudgy brownies and sugar cookies.

The new Wonderland Bakery Collection also features its star: the soft and cuddly Allyson Wonderland Bear by Gund. The animated talking bear that tells the dream-come-true story of Chef Allyson Ames. Wonderland Bakery is the first-ever animated bear partnership with Gund, one of America’s 50 most recognizable brands.

“We are honored to be selected as ‘Whoopi’s Favorite Cookie,’” says Ames. “Some of my best memories when I was young was baking with my mom and creating desserts for my friends. Now I am living my dream in Wonderland helping others celebrate with yummy treats including Whoopi and her family and friends.”

In addition to setting trends in cupcakes, cookies and confections, Wonderland Bakery has built a strong brand and a loyal following. Expansion plans for 2009 whimsically crafted point of sale displays for nationwide retailers and airport stores. Each display will include bake at home mixes, aprons, tea sets, cupcake purses, clothing and the animated talking Allyson Wonderland Bear by Gund.
