I had a large strawberry cupcake..the frosting was buttery-sweet..a must try. My friend got to try a few of the mini ones. They were to die for.

The manager provided a 6hour time frame available for consultation for the the following day. I promptly replied indicating I would like to meet, and chose a... More

I love miniatures, so when I heard there were little cupcakes, It was a must visit for me! I must admit, they were a feast for the eyes. Decorated to the hilt and adorable as all get out! I tried 2 flavors: eggnog and key lime. Unfortunately, it was all about the frosting. Loaded with sugar and whatever flavor cupcake... More

This is the place to go when you want a sweet treat. They serve frozen yogurt, but I recommend the frozen custard! The cupcakes are absolutely delicious. So many variations and flavors, it's hard to pick.

I have been going here since they opened and I still love it. With so many places the quality slips over time but I think the quality actually improves here over time!! They always have new varieties to try, though creme brulee is one of my all-time Sweet favorites. I also like the mini Mondays, when mini cupcakes are a... More

I have an obsession about cupcakes. Try as I might, resistance was futile to stay away from this cupcake shop located in Waterford Lakes in Orlando. I have made 3 visits so far. The majority of flavors are awesome and the cake is moist with the perfect crumb texture. The mini cupcakes are a great way to get a taste... More

I came here to try this place after I watched Holly on Cupcake Wars. We went on Monday because their mini's are only $1. That way we could try multiple flavors. There is plenty of flavors and gluten free as well. Friendly staff and clean bakery. We will be back!

Who doesn't love an amazing cupcake?! Sweet never disappoints, I love the variety of flavors. You get the most bang for your buck with the Mini Variety pack, where you can choose 4 different flavors. Yum!

Miss Holly's cupcakes are more than the sum of their ingredients. Each one comes with story and history that led it to our counters. The recipes came from moms, aunts, grandpas (yes it's true, not many but a few!) and grandmas. Some are simply created by our creative chefs or inspired front of the house staff. Every cupcake that is made by Sweet By Holly is truly a team effort and includes one ingredient that is not in the recipe book but is absolutely essential, and that is LOVE! We hope you get the same pleasure from eating our cupcakes that we get from making them!
