Christmas Cupcakes

These Christmas Cupcakes were made for my awesome hair dresser, Chris! They were a variety of flavors: white, double chocolate, red velvet, and confetti- with buttercream frosting and fun fondant details! They were packaged up in groups of four and looked so cute together!!
Happy Holidays!

Owl Cake and cupcakes!

This cute owl cake and matching cupcakes were for Noah's first birthday! His mommy sent me a picture of a "girly" owl cake, so I went off of that general design, but made it more boy-ish and rustic. The cupcakes were red velvet, marble, and confetti- with sprinkles and buttercream to match. The actual smash cake was a white cake made out of 6" cakes, and covered in matching fondant made to look "stitched together".

Converse and Cupcakes Smash Cake & Cupcakes

More Zebra print and pink??? You don't hear me complaining! :) I love it!! The theme for this smash combo was "converse shoes", and the Mommy also wanted it to to be uber-girly and pink! The Smash cake is a "Cupcake Cake" made from 6" and 4" white cake, covered in fondant with a fondant bow that has hand painted zebra stripes. The cupcakes were originally only going to have 2-d converse shoes, but I thought it would be too cute to make them 3-d, and I think they turned out awesome!! The cupcakes were one dozen white with pink buttercream and fun matching fondant toppers.

Funky Baby Shower Cupcakes

This order was for 3 dozen cupcakes (only 2 dozen pictured here) for a baby shower. The client said her sis in law loved pink and black, zebra, and bright colors and that I could basically do anything I wanted! I love pink and green combo's so I thought this theme would be super cute! The cupcakes were chocolate covered cherry and strawberry, with buttercream frosting and lots of fun fondant details: zebra toppers, roses, polka dots, & buttons etc. 

Pink Champagne 21st Birthday Cupcakes

I got such a sweet request for some 21st Birthday Pink Champagne Cupcakes since the client's daughter was not a big drinker, and they still wanted to celebrate with champagne! How cute is that!?! These are one dozen pink champagne with pink champagne buttercream and pink fondant bows on top. It is hard to see in this picture but there is also edible glitter on the frosting by request of the client! How fun and girly, I love it!

It just makes me happy to look at!

Update on the Storefront!

Sign is up!
Hi everyone! I wanted to give an update on the progress of the storefront since there has actually been *GASP* progress!! :) I am so excited and literally CANNOT wait to get open!
As for the actual construction, we have walls up, plumbing installed, electric done, and are getting close to working on the more exciting stuff- aka paint and decor :) I was realllly, really hoping to be open by the end of October but it is looking more like Mid- November. Once we get an actual date of completion I will be promoting our grand opening which will fall on a Saturday! Stay tuned for that announcement because it's going to be an awesome event!!
I also wanted to explain to everyone my vision and what you can expect when you come in once we are open! There will be retail cupcakes for sale every day. There will be one case where you can walk in and purchase one cupcake to eat on the spot, or as many as you would like! But there will also be the refrigerated case where there will be a variety of "Grab and Go" pre-boxed cupcakes. I am so excited for this! They will be a variety of flavors, and also decorated with custom fondant decor! So for instance when the holidays come up if you are in a crunch you can stop in on the fly and pick up one dozen or two dozen amazingly cute, ready to go, already decorated cupcakes! I think it's going to be a hit and like nothing else you can find in Fort Worth!! If you like what I do with my custom cupcake orders, you will definitely like this! These "Grab and Go's" will be available every day (first come, first serve) and the themes will change according to seasons/holidays/events etc!
The closer we get to opening the closer we are getting to having an actual LAND LINE phone (woohoo!!!!!) And we can all communicate via phone, or better yet in person! So please stay tuned for the new number!
I also wanted to encourage everyone to place their orders for Halloween ASAP (how the heck is it already mid October?!?!) I have sooo many cute ideas for Halloween cupcakes-- shoot me an email if you would like to place an order!!
Thank you again everyone for your constant support and patience! Can't wait to share my vision with all of you!! :)
Oh, and one last thing!! I have been working with my amazing graphic designer/photographer team on an entirely new website for literally months now! (Same domain- But it is literally soooo CAAAA-YUUUUUTE and unique and ME- I cannot wait to reveal it to you guys!! It really conveys what Leah's Sweet Treats is to me and my actual aesthetic so it's going to be awesome! We have been waiting until we get the new contact info so please be sure to check my facebook for updates and the announcement of new website!!

Rhino Cake

Another super cool 3-d animal cake!! This was for a 5th birthday, with a request for a Rhino Head Cake. The actual cake is sculpted out of an 8" and 6" red velvet cake. It was covered in ivory fondant, airbrushed with different shades of silver and grey with fondant horns, ears, and party hat & blower. I have to say I'm really digging the 3-d sculpted cakes and hope to get more requests because they honestly turn out so cool that it even kind of amazes me sometimes :)

Just wanted you to know the beautifully crafted rhinocerous cake was just as delicious as it was impressive. All the business cards disappeared. I'm carving up the leftovers to share with neighbors. Thank you for making Robert's 5th birthday special.  -J"
