“Giving us some deliciousness, it’s not always good for our waistline but it’s certainly good for the community,” the county executive said.
The Baltimore County native has baked his way through other shows, including Cake Wars, Cutthroat Kitchen and Sweet Genius. He said seeing his customers satisfy their sweet tooth at his store makes it all worth it.
He said he sells over 8,000 cupcakes per week.
“Our community is so great, we have so many loyal customers and like friends and family here,” Hisley said.
