TLC renews 'DC Cupcakes' for second season

TLC has picked up a second season of "DC Cupcakes," the network confirmed Monday, though it's unclear how many episodes that involves.

The show stars 30-something sisters Sophie LaMontagne and Katherine Kallinis, owners of Georgetown Cupcake at 33rd and M Streets.

The first season spanned just six episodes over three weeks -- two each Friday.

About 1.1 million people watched the debut at 10 on July 16; the second week the audience grew a tick, and by last Friday, 1.5 million were watching the first-season finale in which a local fireman asked for baking lessons -- really? -- which somehow led to a sister vs. sister bake-off at the firehouse.

And of course, there was the "picky" customer who sent back cupcakes she'd purchased for her daughter's 16th birthday party, leaving the sisters scrambling to redo them -- though, if we'd been the show's soft-script writer, we would gone with: "sisters shove picky customer into their industrial oven, turn the heat to 200 degrees, lock the front door, and head over to the Ritz Carlton for a drink."
