In this beautiful memoir and cookbook, sisters and stars of the hit TLC show DC Cupcakes, Katherine Kallinis and Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne, inspire readers with tales of how their grandmother’s recipes and life lessons led them to fulfill their wildest dream.
When sisters Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne and Katherine Kallinis, laid it all on the line, quit their secure jobs in fashion and finance, and opened their cupcakery together, they knew the risks of failure were high. But from an early age, their Greek grandmother had instilled in them a love of baking and a willingness to follow their dreams. And when they opened the doors to Georgetown Cupcake on Valentine’s Day 2008, their gumption, smarts and energy led them to success beyond their wildest expectations. Three years later, the sisters have a second location, a nationwide shipping operation, and a hit TV series--DC Cupcakes, on cable network TLC.
Georgetown Cupcake’s meteoric rise is the realization of a dream rooted in the special bond that Sophie and Katherine formed with each other and their grandmother from childhood. The Cupcake Diaries is a tribute to that bond, the memories they share, and the important lessons they learned, both about baking and about life. The book will follow their personal journey, starting from their childhood where their Greek grandmother taught them, at a young age, to bake and cook. It will tell the story of their business, and how it grew from concept to reality. And of course, if will contain numerous recipes so readers can recreate the magic of the sisters’ cupcake delicacies in their own homes. The Cupcake Diaries celebrates what it takes--luck, courage, family support, and determination--to go from dreaming to doing.
