TV DivaGal threw caution through the wind when TLC threw a summer party in New York City and chowed down on a mountain of delish cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcake.
But you won’t have to worry about the calories to take a bite out DC Cupcakes, the new reality show about the bakery in our nation’s capital (though it’s certainly worth it!).
“Everything is fresh ΓÇô fresh limes and bananas that we mash in the chocolate banana cupcake,” says series star Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne, who started the company with her sister using their grandmother’s cake recipes.
“We’ve been baking since we were little girls,” says Katherine Kallinis. “We always dreamed of opening a bakery, so we quit our jobs.”
Yeah, their parents freaked out a little bit. “They thought we were nuts,” Katherine laughs. “They come from a small village in Greece and said, ‘People are trying to get out of the bakery, you’re going back in!'”
The gals charged forward anyway, and now they’re a major success.
Come to think about it, you can have your cupcake and eat it too, if it’s the chocolate ganache.
“ItΓÇÖs chocolate cake dipped in calibo chocolate and it’s only 196 calories,” Sophie shares. “You’re still getting that chocolate flavor, so you can eat one or two, maybe three.”
DC Cupcakes premieres Friday, July 16 at 10 p.m. on TLC.
