Leah's recipe for success includes good homemade baking sprinkled with heartfelt philanthropic efforts
Cupcakes Most Wanted founder, Leah Baker Fowler, is a bright, talented, purpose driven 12-year old foodpreneur who loves baking. Inspired by playful times in the kitchen with her big sister and an encouraging “yes you can” from her grandmother, Leah started Cupcakes Most Wanted under the brilliant tutelage of her mother, Tia Baker, Cupcake’s Chief Operating Officer and breast cancer survivor. Leah’s tenacious work ethic and dazzling creativity has resulted in a flavorful array of much sought after cupcakes that are each named after the person behind their inspiration. Leah’s signature cupcake—and favorite flavor—is Nan’s Sassy Sweet Potato, inspired by the sassy sweet potato pie recipe that made her great-grandma Eddings famous among friends and family.
The recipe behind Cupcakes Most Wanted success includes entrepreneurship and philanthropy. Leah and Tia recently established The Leah Baker Fowler Fund with POISE Foundation to provide support to children fighting battles against cancer, as well as other charitable interest as determined by the mother-daughter team. Leah’s interest in helping children with cancer was stirred by her mother’s triumphant battle against breast cancer, her natural philanthropic leanings, a desire to share her good fortune with others and to make a difference in the world.
From its inception, Cupcakes Most Wanted has served a steady stream of satisfied customers and is a sought after brand. Some of its clients include:
- Girls Coalition of Southwest PA,
- Children’s Museum
- Gwen’s Girls
- CORO Pittsburgh
Leah has been asked to speak and share her story of entrepreneurship by organizations such as Girls Coalition of Southwest PA, Miller African Centered Academy and Urban Pathways Charter School and Food for Thought, a mentoring program which explores cooking, health, justice, and possible careers all through food related activities. In addition to running Cupcakes Most Wanted, Leah is enrolled at the Milton Hershey School, where she is diligently studying to secure her future and the long-term success of her family company.
