Cupcake Wars baker LA Sweetz rising in Orlando

ORLANDO, Fla. — You’ve seen them on Food Network’s Cupcake Wars now you can taste the sensation that is LA Sweetz with the company expanding to Orlando.

The popular Miami cupcake shop is coming to Central Florida, openings its first franchise store in early 2016 at The Fountains Shopping Center.

The 1,500-square-foot Orlando location will be the largest LA Sweetz shop. Miami already has three locations.

Letty Alvarez founded the first LA Sweetz in 2008, taking her and her husband’s last $5,000 in savings to open up the store.

Soon after the duo were cast on Food Network’s “Cupcake Wars”. She was eventually tabbed by TLC’s Cakeboss star Buddy Valastro himself as one of the 13 best bakers in America.
