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’m usually in shorts and a t-shirt or a tank top and boxers with my hubbie’s apron wrapped tight and my blue crocs! I wouldn’t have it any other way! 🙂

    I like to bake in comfy pj’s or clothing, but the shirt has to have short sleeves. I find working with fondant a lot, if I am fighting with sleeves rolling down all the time, I get hair or lint on the fondant! Grrrr! Aprons are great too, but my holey shoes help keep my feet happy when I am on them for hours and hours.

    For my old job, I was asked to wear a white T-shirt (Hanes men’s X-large, and bleach-able)and black pants (elastic-waist scrub pants from my supercenter). They are really comfy, and I can just layer a sweater or cotton blouse on top for a delivery without looking like a total slob:) But at home? Flannel jammie bottoms, t-shirt, old sweatshirt, socks, and slip-on sneakers!

    When I bake at home, I cover my hair! I don’t want an unwanted hair in somebody’s cupcake. I also use and apron.

    I bought one of these too! It is so cute.
    And I love wearing sweats and a tshirt. Both make the perfect hand wiper!
