Katherine Kallinis and Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne certainly didn't inherit their culinary skills from their mother.

The sisters, founders of Georgetown Cupcake and stars of the reality TV show "D.C. Cupcakes," hosted a cupcake and champagne premiere party Tuesday night at the Georgetown Ritz-Carlton to preview the first episode of the show.

In it, their mother Elaine Kallinis, whom they cutely call "Mommy," was responsible for at least one cringe-worthy cupcake wreck and a lot of the laughs.

Shooting for the show started back in February (with remnants of Snowmageddon still on Georgetown's streets) and the first episode looks at the sisters' frazzled Valentine's Day where they must make 20,000 cupcakes just for the holiday and another 1,000 mini-cupcakes for a charity event.

"Are you sure, Mommy?" Katherine Kallinis asks her mother when she volunteers to be responsible for minding the red velvet cupcakes in the oven. "Mommy" takes them out too early -- ruining 10 dozen.

"We're so screwed, I don't know what we're going to do," Katherine Kallinis says, freaking out. (The sisters told Yeas & Nays their mother redeems herself in later episodes).

At another instance, the Mardis Gras cupcake display they created for a benefit for St. Jude's Children's Hospital can't get out the door of the "lab," what they call the original Georgetown location of the store. And that's just the icing on the cake.

The episode airs Friday at 10 p.m.
