A cupcake reality show: The Cupcake Girls

Cupcakes by Heather & Lori

Via Trading Markets comes news about a Canadian reality TV show all about cupcakes!

The show is about Cupcakes in Vancouver, which has been open since April 2002. These photos are from their Facebook page. And the show is not to be confused with the cupcake crafters/Etsy sellers The Cupcake Girls.

Corus Entertainment's W Network, Canada's No.1 specialty channel for women, announced today that it will be producing two new series this summer. Working with Vancouver's Worldwide Bag Media, Anna & Kristina's Style Bag (working title) will go into production this July and the docu-soap The Cupcake Girls, from Vancouver-based Force Four Entertainment, will start production later this month...

"The Cupcake Girls is a slightly new direction for us," continued Bianchi. "It's a docu-soap series that follows two best friends and entrepreneurs trying to take their successful Canadian cupcake business international, complete with colourful characters and all the behind-the-scenes drama, excitement, laughs and highs and lows associated with attempting to summit the high stakes world of cupcakes."

THE CUPCAKE GIRLS

Think running a bakery is a piece of cake? Well, try out this recipe: Two best friends, one set of bickering parents, 50 young, unpredictable female employees and a team of franchisees with differing opinions. Stir in a healthy dose of high maintenance customers and a handful of miserable contractors, and you've got a day in the life of The Cupcake Girls.

A 13-episode docu-soap, The Cupcake Girls follows entrepreneurs and best friends Heather White and Lori Joyce on a deliciously dysfunctional and often hilarious journey to build a cupcake empire. Produced by Force Four Entertainment in association with W Network, the series starts production this June and will premiere in early 2010.
