What do you wear when you bake & decorate? - Page 2

post #16 of 23

For baking...a clean t-shirt and whatever pants with an apron. My hair is short so I'll wear a bandana or a headband since I can't put it up.

 

For decorating, it's lint free all the way...I have some nylon or polyester pants and t-shirts that don't lose fibers.

 

I save my chef's coat for deliveries.

Hair french braided and pinned up, with a cap, kitchen shoes, chef coat and usually a pencil skirt.

It's what I was trained in, and wore at work, just became a force of habit.

 

Coast are so much better than aprons as far as durability and protecting you from heat/splatter, but I would probably ditch it if I lived in a hotter climate, lol.

I wear a babushka ( printed scarf), chef jacket and apron with towels at waist.  lot of staff at my bakery wear babushkas only because they help with sweat and keep hair well covered.   Yes I look like old lady  but icon_lol.gif I choose different materials to sew them.... like skulls and dots, maple leafs ( in Canada) Christmas designs etc.   lots of fun.... always thought baseball hats don't quite keep all the hair covered.

A short sleeved tshirt, hair up in a tight bun, and a tiara.

Ok, so I only wear the tiara on my birthday.

and I thought tiaras were for anyday!

Was actually thinking of going to the fabric shop and making my own babushkas.

Since I cut off all my long hair (the rubberbands & clips covered with a bandana held my hair in place) my new short haircut is harder to keep from falling out.  not accurate.....it falls out at the same rate, it's just not glued into place like it used to be.

I felt a little self-conscious about buying a chefs coat, being a non-professional.  I just wanted to be sanitary and hair free - short of shaving my head like Lex Luther. Appreciate you folks' responses.

Well, went ahead and bought a box of plastic food service gloves and white hairnets.

I know it's silly for a home baker, but I really have so many people who get my stuff I just wanted to keep it sanitary for them.

Why would that be silly? It is actually part of the serve safe regs here...

I wear the same stuff at home to cover head and clothing... why shouldn't you be as clean and careful with home baking as commercial baking?   Good move.
