Orlando cupcake queen Miss Holly to battle it out on Cake Wars


  • Food Network

Hollis Wilder, a Winter Park-based cupcake queen and three-time Cupcake Wars champion, will be returning to the small screen in July to compete in the new Food Network show Cake Wars

Wilder will be appearing in one episode where she and three other contestants will bake a dream wedding cake for a soon-to-be bride and groom. The winner will receive a $10,000 prize.

The series is hosted by Jonathan Bennett, a familiar face to many who may know him as Mean Girls heartthrob Aaron Samuels.  

In 2008, after baking for more than 25 years in Los Angeles, Wilder, also known as Miss Holly, opened Sweet By Holly in Waterford Lakes. Three years later she opened her second location in St. John's Center in Jacksonville.

You can see Miss Holly compete by tuning into the Food Network on Monday, July 13 at 8 p.m. ET.
