Three-time winner of Cupcake Wars and Sweet! by Good Golly Miss Holly owner Hollis Wilder will compete on Food Network's Cake Wars, set to premiere on July 13 at 8 p.m.

The contestant with the best cake creation will receive a prize of $10,000.

"The only way to prepare is mentally. I was able to relax and be 100 percent myself on the show. That's a personal and private win," Wilder said.

To get a taste of her bakery creations, Sweet! in Waterford Lakes offers several different flavors of cupcakes including nutella, strawberry, black and gold and more.

Although Wilder will be moving back to California this year with her family, Sweet! is here to stay.

"I've empowered my staff the way they need to do it without me (around). I am really a lucky girl. That's one of the best things to do as an employer," Wilder said.
