COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — Baker is one of many titles for a Columbus small business owner known for his specialty cookies. He’s also a drag queen and a Food Network contestant.
Owner of Plenty O’Cookies, Canton native Alex Copeland is a local baker specializing in an array of cookies adorned with distinct designs celebrating various holidays, seasons, occasions and more. Inspired by Copeland’s drag persona, Plenty O’Smiles, the small business has been baking in central Ohio since 2014.
