Description: 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!

“Favorite Dessert Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

This place is close to my work and my wife will drive across town to "meet me for lunch", but I know the real reason is that she wants to eat these cupcakes! It's okay because I love them too. Our favorites are the Red Velvet and Tiramisu, but we have yet to try them all.

“There is a good reason why Hollis won Cupcake Wars twice - YUM!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

Our family and our friends all love cupcakes and try them around the country whenever we see an interesting bakery. None of us have yet found a bakery that makes cupcakes as good as these. (If there really is such a place, tell us.) Everyone has little things they might like or dislike about certain flavors, sweetness, or spices, but all around everyone we know agrees Sweet has the best cupcakes. Creamy icing, good flavors, creative flavors that all work really well. We have tried most of the flavors and they are so yummy. Can't imagine anyone not loving these cupcakes. We all love the tiny bites so you can try lots of flavors without getting too stuffed. We drive out of our way to buy cupcakes at Sweets whenever we are in the Orlando area.

“Great but a bit of a drive from our hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

We barely made it here in time to visit since the drive was forever! It's not near the touristy side of town so it's a drive to get there. However, I went to their website and signed up on their mailing list and received a free cupcake plus I purchased some for everyone else too. It was a cute shop, the cakes are good and they even had soft serve.

“Excellent cupcakes...no organization in who is next”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

My husband and kids got the help yourself yogurt and topping...they were really good about sample cups to try the flavors.

I ordered the peanut butter cupcake...which was excellent.

The main problem, there was no type of system, so that next in line was taken care of. We arrived and the place was empty, the next thing we were at the back of the line, waiting for out yogurt to be weighted and paid for.

“Good Golly, this place rocks!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2012

Although their cupcakes are a bit on the pricey side, they are delicious. I like going here more-so for their great frozen yoghurt, especially the red velvet cake flavor! If you're going to buy cupcakes, make sure you do so on a Monday, when they're discounted by 50%. I especially like buying their mini cupcakes to get the best variety possible. Give them a try - you'll like it! They could definitely add a few more seats to the place, as it's usually standing room only when it gets packed...
