QVC, You Had Us At Red Velvet: ‘DC Cupcakes’ Will Be Rolling Onto Our Thighs

October 12, 2011

Stop the presses on this one.

According to a QVC press release Tuesday, the queens of Georgetown Cupcake and stars of the TLC series “DC Cupcakes,” Katherine Kallinis and Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne, will are coming to QVC. They will appear Oct. 23 at noon.

Here’s how out of it we’ve been: We’ve never heard of this TV program. We’ve been watching soft porn and violence, like “American Horror Story” on FX, instead.

Anyway, this pair will be bringing their cupcakes with them, so to speak, to West Chester and will launch their first book “The Cupcake Diaries: Recipes and Memories from the Sisters of Georgetown Cupcake.”

During the QVC program “In the Kitchen with David,” the sisters will give viewers an inside look at the inspiration behind “The Cupcake Diaries,” which “chronicles their sweet success after choosing cupcakes over the corporate world,” according to QVC.

Maybe we should pursue that career route. It sounds like it beats journalism.

This is straight from QVC’s press release:

The new book not only reveals their secrets of building a nationally recognized business but also offers readers 42 recipes,including the bestselling red velvet cupcake and their grandmother’s Greek Easter bread. Fans will have the opportunity to purchase The Cupcake Diaries more than two weeks in advance of its release date.

As the sisters share stories and recipes, they will also offer the cupcakes that started a craze by the dozen to QVC shoppers nationwide. The Georgetown Cupcake Gourmet Cupcake Assortment consists of six of the most popular flavors, including lava fudge and salted caramel, plus six flavors exclusive to QVC. The new flavors are chocolate toffee crunch, apple crumble, chocolate marshmallow, maple walnut crunch, chocolate peanut butter caramel fudge, and citrus blossom.

“Katherine and Sophie are truly an entrepreneurial inspiration and we are thrilled to bring their story and one-of-a-kind cupcakes to QVC,” vice president of merchandising John Kelly said in a canned statement.

The Cupcake Diaries: Recipes and Memories from the Sisters of Georgetown Cupcake (QVC Item #F09562) and the Georgetown Cupcake Gourmet Cupcake Assortment (QVC Item #M26167) will be available starting Oct. 23.
