Is it just me or do you feel the need to show off Wondermade any time anyone new comes into Sanford? Well, as if we needed another reason to pop in to the deliciously sweet tasting store, there are soon to be even more reasons why we should show it off – and we are here to fill you in on just what’s going on with all those balloons that have been hanging out in the store’s windows.
I sat down with Wondermade owner Nathan and he gave me the scoop on just what he and his family have in store for the place we all love!
WONDERMADE IS EXPANDING!!! Yes you read that correctly, Wondermade is going to be twice the size it currently is and we’re here to share with you what to expect when the new doors open.

If you have yet to take a peek at our Sanford Summer Camp Guide then you may have missed Wondermade’s School of Wonder that will be taking place in their workshop area which will be in the current building, but will offer more space and larger class sizes for both the School of Wonder and their Marshmallow classes as well as Hot Chocolate & Ice Cream classes. This space will allow for more classes to be held as well such as Team Building, Birthday Parties, Girls Night out, and any large group event that does not exceed 35 people, so plan a night and have some sweet fun. Wondermade will also be offering outbound classes for events, be sure to contact them for more info if this is something that interests you.

Learn the art, science and fun of making candies and frozen treats with real confectioners at Wondermade! This 5-day summer program for middle and high school students will teach participants to make:
• Ice Cream
• Gummy Bears
Each day, students will explore cooking techniques and experiment with flavors to make their very own batches of different treats. And over the course of each 150 minute session they’ll learn the art and science of taste adventure. They’ll learn the food science behind sugar, milk and gelatin. They’ll spend time on the art of flavor profiles and pairings. And most of all they’ll have fun learning the craft of confection making!
Students will learn to become taste adventurers, and by the end of the week they’ll bring home their very own hand-crafted marshmallows, lollipops, ice cream, popsicles and gummy bears.
Students will work in teams and this class is limited to students aged 13 and older.
Wondermade’s won international acclaim for our marshmallows over the last few years, shipping millions of delicious candies to the mouths – and hearts! – of customers worldwide.
