DC Cupcakes 2

Image 1 / 10

Sophie and Katherine are sisters on a mission to create the world’s best cupcakes at their Washington, DC bake shop.  No challenge is too big for these madcap cupcake makers.

Sophie and Katherine risked their life savings and traded high-powered careers in fashion and finance to pursue their passion for baking and their lifelong dream of opening a bakery. Armed with their grandmother's recipes and strong family support, the sisters opened Georgetown Cupcake on Valentine's Day 2008. To their surprise, the shop became an overnight sensation and now sells more than 5,000 cupcakes a day. ‘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, with each episode capturing the behind-the-scenes drama in their fast paced, family-owned bakery. From making 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. Adding to the chaos is the baking duos Mother ("Mommy") - who plays a big part in running the family business, and a team of staff who are as colorful as their cupcake creations.
