The Handle the Heat Baker’s Apron

I created this apron to be ultra wearable, functional, and stylish. After feeling frustrated with aprons that were too pretty to use or too stiff to feel comfortable, we found the perfect solution with soft yet durable recycled fabric that serves our mission of sustainability.

Not only that, but the apron features two different length options so if you’re petite like me, you still feel cute and feminine instead of drowning in fabric. 

Each size also has a tea towel holder to wipe away spills in a flash, as well as a super handy measuring weight guide so you can always bake the Handle the Heat way to all but guarantee bakery-quality results in your kitchen (and look good while doing it!).

The Magic of Baking Course You Need

Learn how to tweak your own recipes! No more misses, only HITS coming out of your kitchen. This is everything I WISH people knew before they’d ever bake another recipe again.

You’ll learn HOW and WHY things work (or don’t) so you can consistently create delicious treats every single time.

What course students are saying:

The course is fun, informative and easy to follow. I love how it literally breaks everything down so you can physically see and understand how it all works without feeling overwhelmed.

– Ali W.

For me, The Magic of Baking is what has made such a difference in my baking. It has COMPLETELY taken my confidence to another level. I actually have had people ask me when I’m going to open a bakery!
