Lily’s Cakes Owner Lilian Halabi’s Team Wins on ‘Holiday Wars’
Central Texas baker and 'Cake Wars' Champion Lilian Halabi once again appeared on Food Network Sunday night, where she competed in the first episode of 'Holiday Wars' and helped her team score another victory.
Lily, who owns Lily's Cakes in Harker Heights and Temple, was part of team Frost Sleighers, who impressed the judges in Round 1 with a tasty potbelly piglet getting stuck in a chimney, and in Round 2 with an elaborate cake depicting a family of smowmen trying to stay frosty while baking in a hot kitchen.
Lily's role on the team involved detailing, mostly of faces. It's perhaps her greatest strength when crafting cakes, and she did fantastic work. (As if she wouldn't, right?)
Sunday night's victory netter her team $10,000. It wasn't Lily's first rodeo, either. Her Monopoly themed cake scored her a huge victory on Cake Wars back in 2017, and if you've ever been to either of her shops or custom ordered a cake from her, you know she's a master.
Lily's also just as sweet as her cakes. She was kind enough to talk to us when we popped into her Temple shop last summer, and even treated us to some free cupcakes.
Check out that interview below, and if you stop by either shop soon, wave and say congrats!
