Baking is a great way to relax, get your creative juices flowing, and it almost always ends with tasty treats. You may wonder what to wear while performing this glorious task, well fear no more fellow sugar addicts, here you will find a selection of baking inspired fashion fit for a kitchen novice and a piping queen alike. Baking has become an increasingly fashionable pastime most likely due to reality TV series such as the UK's The Great British Bake Off (TGBBO) where aspiring master bakers battle it out with rolling pins for weapons (not literally thank goodness,) and U.S. series Ace of Cakes which follows the daily goings on of a hugely popular custom cake shop in Baltimore. There's something really addictive about watching people's soufflés deflate while you look on in pity from your living room shaking your head.
Instagram and Pinterest have aided the rise of the everyday baker, with their feeds full of scrumptious desserts, it's hard not to feel inspired to pick up your wooden spoon and rustle up something yummy. Cupcakes appear to be the glamorous cake of choice; they are devoured easily in a few mouthfuls, they come with a handy "plate" wrapper, and they can be customized to your heart's content. Cupcake shops and cupcake delivery companies appear to be popping up left, right, and center. If Max and Caroline of 2 Broke Girls can do it, then anyone can!
Baking and fashion go hand in hand; it appears they are continuously inspiring each other in a chicken and egg style fashion. So if you're an aspiring TGBBO contestant or you just adore doughnuts, then here's a selection of fashion for lovers of baked goods.
