Sweet is one of the best bakeries in Orlando. The cupcakes are fresh, and in fact so fresh that they tend to run out of the popular favors by end of day. We've ordered both cupcakes and cakes from here and have never been disappointed. Only down side is it is on a bit of the pricy side for a... More

I wish I could say nicer things about this place as I have wanted to visit for some time, having seen Hollis on Cupcake Wars years back. BF and myself have tried just about every cupcake place in Central Florida and this was definitely on our list. However, our experience just didn't live up to the expectations. The cupcakes, themselves,... More

My daughter being a huge cupcake wars fan was more than estatic to go here once we knew we were going to be in the area. We were not disappointed. The cupcakes were very well priced, and we went on a Monday so the mini ones were $1 a piece. We got a dozen! Every single one was different. There... More

This incredible cupcake emporium is a sinfully delicious experience. I learned about Sweet when I was training for a job nearby. I went in to try them out to bring home a treat. We were all hooked the first time. Now traveling to UCF I have another reason to stop in for treats. Cupcakes cone in two sizes, mini and... More

This place has such variety of adorable and scrumptious mini cupcakes you will have trouble making up your mind and will end up taking a box that you might not share after all... A little pricey but worth it!

These cupcakes explain why they have won 3 times the cup cakes war because they are delicious. You can taste each ingredients in the smores cup cakes. They also have a food truck at the Artegon in Orlando in case you in that area.

This is the kind of place you feel guilty after visiting. The cupcakes are so good that you no doubt eat more than you should. There's so many choices too, so you just want to try them all. They have regular sized cupcakes, which are actually pretty huge and can be shared by multiple people, and mini cupcakes which are... More

Absolutely delightful cupcakes. We stopped in twice in a 3 day business trip. I had Red Velvet, Nutella, and Peanut Butter Cup and all were delicious. The staff was friendly and the selection was vast.

This place is great! They have minis and regular sizes and have such a large selection that satisfies multiple cravings. I've been to other cupcake places and this place is the best. Just their selection alone tops everyone else, not to mention the cupcakes are absolutely delicious!!!

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!
