Cupcake workshop helps North Idaho College sports | Events
It’s time to put the final layer of frosting on local cupcake coverage. Before we do, you’re going to need the skills to make your cupcakes beautiful in the comforts of your home.
That’s why there’s a local decorating workshop with Baltimore, Maryland's Charm City Cupcakes next week to help you out.
Here’s the left field kicker. The workshop is also a fundraiser for North Idaho College’s Athletics Department and during our conversation with the athletics director, Al Williams, he made his pitch for cupcakes and how it all comes back to sports.
Q: Why cupcakes?
A: During one of my travels, I went to Charm City Cupcakes. I was talking to the owner... They’re the official cupcakes of the Baltimore Ravens. ... Sports is kind of a neat thing they took on. A player with the Ravens like their cupcakes.
Q: Is it a good idea for football players to eat cupcakes?
A: Have you seen how big the offensive linemen are? They feed them cupcakes. The breakfast of champions.
Q: Why do you like cupcakes?
A: The neat thing I’ve seen, cupcakes have been replacing wedding cakes. So much easier to hand out. People prefer cupcakes.
Williams did admit that cupcakes have a few calories in them, but as a fan of the Boston business, he convinced them to come out to Coeur d’Alene to teach the workshop. They’ve also taught workshops in Ft. Lauderdale and Richmond, Virginia.
The workshop’s proceeds benefit the Athletics Department which features ten different sports programs for men and women. The workshop has about 100 seats available for each session happening at the Coeur d'Alene Inn. Williams says there’s still space in all of them. To sign up, visit http://nicathletics.com/.
