Good Golly Miss Holly. Sweet! by Holly at St. Johns’ Town Center Southside is well worth the calories.
Holly Willis became somewhat of an overnight sensation when she garnered first place on Food Network's Cupcakes Wars – twice! Sweet By Holly became the cupcake provider of choice for Holllywood’s A-listers like Demi Moore, Bruce Willis, Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jay Leno Annette Bening-Beatty and husband Warren. Even Mikhail Gorbachev has added to his substantial girth at the hand of Holly.
Miss Holly Cupcake Selection
It’s an epic Hollywood scenario: She moved to Hollywood as so many aspiring actresses do, but soon realized she needed a steady job. She used her innate affinity for baking and cooking, and her "new" career took off like a rifle shot when the creator and producer of Will & Grace, Max Mutchnick discovered her little known talents. she began catering for some big name TV shows like Seinfeld, Will & Grace, 3rd Rock from the Sun, and That 70's Show.
Now here’s the really sweet part for Jacksonville cupcake lovers. She moved to Florida, Winter Park precisely, and with her husband and two children, and opened a business called “Sweet! By Good Golly Miss Holly” in 2008. By putting those scrumptious cupcakes recipes to work in the Sunshine State, the business quickly became a dessert destination. In her second year, she added the frozen yogurt offering, as if you needed another reason to visit cupcake nirvana.
Now, she’s brought her delicious delights to Jacksonville and the St. Johns Town Center Southside, in the form of “Sweets by Holly.” At any given time, there are 32 cupcake varieties – too many to name here, but I will put in a plug for Peanut Butter and Kelly and the Boston Cream. The rest is up to you to make the delicious discovery.
