Started in May 2013 by Stephanie Connock Taylor as "Sweet Sandies," Wonderment Bakeshop & Creamery is a small batch artisanal ice cream and shortbread style tart business based in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Our Ice Cream Sandwiches
We take pride in creating an ice cream product from scratch, combining the best local ingredients to produce over 60 unique flavors. In lieu of the standard pre-made ice cream mix, we cook, pasteurize, and churn our own french custard style ice cream. Wonderment is one of the few ice cream producers in the area that takes these extra steps to ensure full control and customization over our product. It requires more time and love, but we feel you can taste the difference!
Served between two homemade drop cookies, our ice cream sandwiches are the perfect portable frozen treat! In addition to sandwiches, all of our ice cream flavors are available in pints and gallons upon request.
Our shortbread style tarts emerged from Stephanie's past love/addiction to pantry staples, pop tarts. What we sell today emerged as a happy accident 4 years ago. Not one to waste dough of any sort, Stephanie stuffed strips of leftover graham cracker dough with brown sugar, cinnamon and ginger, baked these and slathered on icing. They were not the prettiest but they were a hit with her friends and family and now are a favorite at the City Market.
Our buttery golden dough is rolled, cut, filled with distinctive signature fillings and topped off with royal icing. Served toasted or at room temperature, these tarts are a delightful take on everyone’s favorite childhood snack!
