Super Bowl Sunday!

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012


Are you ready for some football?!  When you think of this high energy, all-American sport, what foods instantly come to mind? Chili, hot wings, and seven layer dips, right? No one pays much attention to the most important part of this game…..the sweets!

I have the perfect defense for your confection cravings. Since February 5th is the day all you sports fanatics have been waiting for, stop by to indulge yourself in the love of the game with one of our football themed cupcakes celebrating both teams. NE Patriot fans can enjoy gray buttercream surrounded by blue and red sprinkles, while NY Giant fans cheer on their team with blue buttercream dressed with red and blue sprinkles. Both topped with a football candy, these classic-sized cupcakes are available in both vanilla and chocolate cake, topped with vanilla buttercream and cost only $3. These are available on the day before and Super Bowl Sunday in our case.  And if you want them in originals ($3.50) or minis ($2.00), we can create any of the cupcakes you want with just 24 hours notice.

Are you hosting or attending a party? Don’t sit on the sidelines with those old boring desserts, be the star quarterback at your Super Bowl 46 celebration with some Sweet! cupcakes. Just in case you’d like to add some additional flair to your Super Bowl spectacular, tack on our hamburger cupcakes for the perfect accent, only $4.50 each.  These fun cupcakes are 2 slices of yellow cake with a sliver of chocolate cake in the center which is layered with tomato, lettuce, mustard, and cheese all in vanilla buttercream with a bit of chocolate icing nestled under the burger.  It is a hand held hamburger cupcake without the wrapper for a whopper of a Super Bowl Fan!  But if you really want to dazzle partygoers add a pizza perfect center piece ($55.00) to spotlight your New England and New York cupcakes!  With 24 hours advance notice, you will feel confident that these colorful, festive treats will score the winning touchdown of the night.

Whether you’re cheering for the Patriots or the Giants, Sweet! By Holly’s scrumptious Super Bowl inspired cupcakes are sure to make a lasting impression at your football bash. Get ready to tackle the food competition by placing your order today.

xoxo Miss Holly

Thank you to Anthony Sutton for making this wonderful event come together! Mr. Sutton wrote a nice message on our Facebook wall to extend his appreciation to the Sweet staff.

Holly, thank you for providing a great and delicious product at last nights unveiling. Florida State College Foundation unveiled it’s new Donor Wall of Recognition and Sweet by Holly was on hand to provide their delicious cupcakes. The “Sweetie” (their term for their caterer) that Holly sent to me was extremly professional. Her name was Katylin and she did a magnificant job articulating the product, and more importantly was very professional to all my guest. Thank you again Katylin and Holly. I highly recommend Sweet by Holly for any event. By far the best cupcakes I have ever had.

Valentine’s Day Collection

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

Miss Holly's Sweet By Holly Valentine's Day Collection 2012
Have you seen the musical RENT? I’m sure you’d recognize its popular song: Seasons of Love. The song essentially questions how we measure a year (Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes, to be exact) and implies that we should live it though love. For us at Sweet! By Holly, we measure love with cupcakes. In honor of this “Season of Love”, we poured our creativity and passion into batter and frosting, whipping up ideas for a never-been-done-before and intricate collection.  From our unique Salted Caramel to our always pleasing Red Velvet, these cupcakes are sure to entice all the senses and bring much happiness to every recipient on your list.  Offering 12 tempting flavors, each recipe is carefully crafted with romance and beauty in mind. Every cupcake exudes it own distinctive taste and style, and is adorned with a mouthwatering chocolate ornament. Not only will your recipient be given a delectable gift of delicious cupcakes, but they will also receive specially handcrafted chocolates!!! It’s two desserts in one, and who could ever resist that?!

Our refrigerated trucks are ready to be Cupid’s helper. Have you put your order in for our pre-assorted cupcakes?

Let’s face it, which would you rather receive: a dozen of these heavenly Cupid-kissed cupcakes with chocolates or a dozen overpriced roses? There are countless reasons why our Collection should be part of your February 14th celebrations. Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred reasons, to be precise, but who’s counting?

XOXO -Miss Holly
