school I am working up in Delaware and anxiously awaiting national

‘Cupcake Wars’ gives Orlando baker a Sweet! showcase

Salmon cupcakes, anyone?

Orlando baker Hollis Wilder puts over that improbable concept in “Cupcake Wars,” which previews at 10 p.m. Sunday on Food Network.

“It’s not something I’ll sell in my store,” Wilder says of the salmon concoction. “It’s one of those cupcakes you make and serve immediately. It was divine — a lemon-scented cake. You bite into the cake. It fills your senses.”

Wilder hopes her appearance on “Cupcake Wars” bolsters her store Sweet! in Waterford Lakes Town Center. The store, which also sells yogurt, celebrates its 2nd anniversary in July.

“I’m from Los Angeles,” Wilder says. “I was a chef to celebrities in Los Angeles. When I moved here, and the Food Network called my store in Waterford Lakes, I laughed my way all the way back to Los Angeles. It’s beyond hysterical.”

“Cupcake Wars” pits four bakers in a three-round contest. In Sunday’s show, the bakers compete for $10,000 and the chance to prepare cupcakes for a charity golf tournament thrown by comedian George Lopez and his wife, Ann. Wilder knows how to please celebrities; she has cooked for Jay Leno, Kevin Costner, Tom Cruise and the Rolling Stones.

Wilder logs a lot of time in the “Cupcake Wars” episode, but she didn’t fix any of the cupcakes she makes at her store. She credits her success to that risky salmon cupcake in the first round.

“It was my chance to think outside the box,” she says. ”I love competing against myself. Yes, it was a competition show, but I need to put myself in a position where I’m fighting to come up with something new.”

Below are some congratulatory messages received from our old and new Sweet! customers!

From Alice and Keith in Titusville, FL:

Holly,
You made the central Florida proud with your work on the first segment of Cupcakes War (shown June 13, 2010)!!
While watching the program, I had to know where your store was located in Orlando and was pleasantly surprised to note that you are on the east side - near Titusville!!!!
So, we’ll just have to make a trek there VERY soon to pick up a sample dozen or 1000 of your masterpieces! :-)
Once, again, congratulations on winning the first Cupcake War.
Sincerely,
Alice & Keith
Titusville, FL

From The Pro-Portionally Designed Blog:

Congratulations to last night’s winner, owner of Sweet! bakery in Orlando, Florida, Hollis Wilder. From the moment that woman dared to try a lox cupcake I was in her corner and now can only think of finding a way to score such a sweet sweet treat!

From Rick C. of Orlando, FL:

Congrats. I couldn’t believe it when I saw your guys on Cupcake Wars. I had actually turned to my wife before it came on and said “Sweet should go on here” and next thing I know you guys are winning!
