The almond cupcake was fantastic. It was moist and light with just the right balance of buttercream frosting. But most importantly, you could tell it was an almond cupcake. The flavor was in the cake, in the icing and the slivers of almonds on top made it even more prevalent. A really good tasting cupcake that involves a flavor other than chocolate is a treat to me and this was perfect.
Leah's Sweet Treats sells a variety of other cupcakes on a daily basis and she's open until she runs out of cupcakes. She also does custom cupcakes with different frosting designs and flavors if you have a party or event. And, as evidenced by her store, she makes custom cakes that she decorates. I haven't tried the cake but if the cupcakes are an indication, they are sure to be great.

According to Leah, she wants to be the premier cupcakery in the Fort, known for moistness and delicious buttercream. The lightness and flavor of the frosting have my vote and she's nailed the moistness. As mentioned, I bought my cupcakes at lunch and ate them after work and they were still moist.
If you haven't been to Leah's Sweet Treats, just head down to the cupcake district of Camp Bowie. Her nearby neighbors include the Cupcake Cottage and Blue Bonnet Bakery. Cupcakes come in mini- and full-size with discounts when you buy by the dozen. It turns out that a dozen mini-cakes is about 200 calories according to my completely accurate and verified study based on my years of eating.
Leah's Sweet Treats is located at 4910 Camp Bowie Blvd. Let me know what you think. And no comment fighting amongst the Cupcake Families of Fort Worth. And no more dead horse heads please.
