What do you wear when you bake & decorate?

What do you wear when you bake & decorate?  At home I wear a bandana on my hair, and a clean white mens t shirt.

Hair pulled back, and an apron. If it's a really big baking day (at home), I'll wear good work shoes. If it's a small order or something that doesn't require meant be on my feet for an extended amount of time, I have comfy flip flops to wear.
At work, really good comfy shoes, apron, & hair pulled back. Sometimes a hat.

Oops, sorry about that MimiFix.........

 What is your recipe  guidelines for covering your head, hands, & body when either at home or in your bakery.  For safety, sanitation, for fun.

hahaha!!  I am now going to imagine all your posts in Borat's voice :p

 

 

I tie my hair up in a ponytail, and then because its stupidly long, I clip the ponytail to my head with one of those claw clips.  Then put on an apron.

In my bakery, production crew wore white aprons; sales clerks (helped with finishing, bagging, and wrapping) wore maroon aprons. Everyone wore skid-resistant closed-toe shoes, and white skull caps. For preparing products going into the oven, no gloves necessary. Otherwise, we wore disposable gloves.

 

At home I wear jeans, t-shirt, closed-toe shoes, and a white chef jacket. I never owned one until I began teaching at the CIA. But now that I own one, might as well use it.

Whoa MimiFix: no wonder your creations are so nice, and your comments are so precise.  You taught at the CIA.

I'm thankful to be learning from folks like you here on CC, so many decorating teachers, bakery owners, small home business operators sharing their wisdom & experience.

As a hobby baker at home (no customers), I wear regular clothes with an apron and put my short hair in a satin sleep cap (like we used to wear over curlers).  I tried hair nets, but my glasses kept getting caught in the hair nets.  I shake my shirt like crazy, put it on, then shake the apron like crazy, put it on, shake the hair cap like crazy, then put it on.  I am paranoid that a hair is going to appear in my baked goods.

 

I don't wear gloves unless I am working with chocolates.  I keep my nails clipped short (you cannot see the nails when looking at the palm), and wash thoroughly a zillion times.
