If you haven’t had your fill of D.C.-centric reality food shows, then make sure to clear your plans for tonight.
At 10 p.m. EST, TLC will premiere its six-part series “DC CUPCAKES” with back-to-back episodes. The show follows Sophie LaMontagne and Katherine Kallinis, sisters originally from Toronto who opened local hotspot Georgetown Cupcake on Valentine’s Day 2008.
According to the Washington Post, the store sells a whopping 5,000 cupcakes a day, and TLC jumped on to the store’s bandwagon along with its loyal customers. The high sales volume, combined with a unique story—the sisters left successful corporate careers to venture into the dessert business—convinced TLC that a show could be created.
Just in case you happened to be in the store when the camera crew was around, Vox recommends you call your parents … they’d love to see you on television.
And if you refuse to give up your Friday night for a television show because you’d rather go out, why not create your own cupcake-themed drinking game. Here’s a the first rule: drink every time someone complains about a cupcake costing $2.75.
