Comfy Caking

Halloween cupcake T-shirt

The traditional baking attire includes an apron and a chef’s hat, but is that what we really wear in our kitchens? On occasion you may see me scrambling in my kitchen with my pastry camp chef’s hat on, one of my twenty aprons tied around my waist, or ever my personalized chef’s coat I received as a Christmas gift a few years ago. But, for the most part, I plan, bake and decorate in my favorite sweatpants and a t-shirt, or a tank top if it’s warm.

I always tell my friends and family, “When I open my bakery, the uniform will be giant sweatpants and a tank top.” I am most comfortable in this outfit, and sweatpants make the perfect hand-wiper in a pinch!

What about you guys? What do you prefer to bake in? The traditional hat and apron… Pajamas… A mix of the two?

Do you have a specific baking outfit that you keep just for the kitchen?

If not, would you like one? Baking t-shirts are popping up all over the Internet. Just search “baking shirt” or “cake shirt” in your favorite search engine and you’ll find hundreds of choices. Just yesterday I came across an adorable Halloween cupcake t-shirt via Twitter. One look and I put my order in – I hope it comes in time for me to make some scary sweet treats!

Happy Caking!

    I always wear my apron because I’m a little messy and accident-prone and things tend to go everywhere, but I’m totally with you on the sweat pants. Comfy stuff that allows for movement is the best idea!

    I just wear whatever I have on at the time, roll my sleeves up and get stuck in!
    It’s my birthday soon, and an apron is top of my gift wishlist, so hopefully, that’s what I’ll be wearing soon! 🙂
