Hometown Hero Sweet Potato Cupcake
When you think of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I'm pretty sure your next thought isn't cupcakes (although I do love cupcakes --so that wouldn't be a surprise for me!). Micheal, from Michaels Desserts in Bowie, MD --and a former WGTS Hometown Hero--just celebrated MLK day by making a special sweet potato flavor cupcake to honor his hero and Black History Month in February. The flavor of the honors a traditional African American dessert, he says, "to represent a great African American" -The Washington Post. Michael says, he's admired Dr. King since he was in kindergarten.
