Cupcake crusade: Local baker chosen by ‘The Chosen One’

The past few days have been a whirlwind for Lakisha and Jason Williams.

They are the owners of Baker Blvd. Decadent Cupcakes in Fairlawn.

Their cupcakes were thrust into the national spotlight after the LeBron James Family Foundation chose the bakery to make and deliver cupcakes for 65 of James' neighbors. It was the basketball star's way of thanking his neighbors for tolerating the media and fan circus that overtook their Bath neighborhood after James announced he was returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Once the cupcakes were delivered, many neighbors posted pictures of the sweet treats along with the note from the James family, on social media. Those posts went viral.

We invited the Williams family to stop by the Fox 8 studios on Thursday morning. Lakisha Williams and her daughter, Kennedy, spoke with Stefani, Wayne and Kristi about their bakery and their connection to LeBron James.
