Cupcakes Get Their Own TV Show: Cupcake Sisters on TLC

Whether you love them or hate them, there is no denying the popularity of cupcakes these days. So much so that TLC has decided to give them their own TV show next fall. No, these aren't those hip New York cupcakes from McDonald's Germany we're talking about here, but rather, the ones from Georgetown Cupcake in Washington, D.C. The new program, Cupcake Sisters, will be about the women who make the delicious treats. From the press release:

The six-part series follows sisters and business partners Sophie LaMontagne and Katherine Kallinis as they run Georgetown Cupcake in Washington, DC - a small cupcake shop that they have transformed into a sweet success. The Sisters gave up their corporate jobs and risked their life savings to follow their hearts into the kitchen, armed only with their Grandmother's recipes and their sisterly bond. Each episode will go beyond the frosting to uncover the secret of Sophie and Katherine's success and follow the challenges they face as the business rapidly expands and is poised to explode on the national scene.
If Cupcake Sisters proves to be a hit, expect similarly fetishized comfort foods like burgers! Mac 'n' cheese! Pizza! to get their own shows on basic cable sometime soon. [EaterWire]
