"DC Cupcakes: County Fair" Premieres Thursday, February 14 at 7 PM (ET/PT) on TLC
The Georgetown Cupcake sisters plunge into two radically different worlds and face some of their toughest cupcakes challenges yet. From Colonial Williamsburg to Virginia's Loudoun County Fair, Sophie and Katherine push their baking skills to the max working in a kitchen dating back two centuries with no electricity to make the ultimate Colonial cupcake fit for royalty. Then, the sisters must make a giant pig made out of more than 1000 cupcakes to be featured as the main attraction of a local county fair. But will they be able to get this massive build to the fair once it's complete?
DC CUPCAKES shares the recipe to Sophie and Katherine's sweet success, following their journey as they navigate the challenges and rewards of building a booming cupcake business. Each episode goes beyond the frosting to capture the behind-the-scenes drama in their fast paced, family-owned bakery. From baking and decorating thousands of gourmet cupcakes a day, to meeting tight deadlines for discerning clientele, to securing large projects such as fundraisers, festivals and weddings, there is never a dull moment with this sister duo. Mixing in their Mother ("Mommy") -- who plays a big part in running the family business -- adds to the chaos and family drama. The other staff members are as colorful as their cupcake creations--their small workspace, sprinkled with the high volume of business, leads to family bickering and staff tension that has more icing flying through the air than on the cupcakes.
