Wearin' my baker's pride...

Hey check this out!
Recently I purchased and now am the proud owner of several concerned looks of passersby when they see me at first glance in my new tshirt from bakelove. It's comfy and wicked cute! And I just love it, but I guess I'll reserve wearing it for baking or other cake related events, since the moms at the park didn't quite share the love. LOL

I also recently had a tshirt or two of my own made up to display my affection for a certain well known baker...or rather the persona that millions of fans have grown to love. (And shhhh, don't tell anyone but quite a few cake artists have grown to love to hate. Okay, that's a strong word...we've grown tired of hearing "oooh, your cakes are like that guy on must watch the show!" ugh.) Yep. You know who I mean. Love him, love the show, love-love-love his staff; I am a fan, but come on, for every Food Network Ace, I could name hundreds just as talented but undiscovered artists. Frankly, I'd love my own Mary Alice...but that ain't gonna happen. LOL
So with much admiration and hilarity I debut for you my own little tshirt that I secretly wear under my hot pink hoodie on deliveries. And hey if I run into an irate fan...well I can just say I'm a bad golfer or lost a distant relative to a bad coal mining incident. (hey look it up, I did).

And then there's a tshirt next on my wish list; a tasteful word play on the milkshake line from that song LOL. When discussing this shirt recently, my 9 year old overheard the conversation and said I should go ahead and get it. Under my breath I muttered that I'd rather not have to explain the meaning of the phrase till she piped up with "but it's true Mommy and you should get it!" She's right, my cupcakes do bring all the boys to my least it brings the two little twins from down the street to my studio door on a weekly basis asking for scraps. I swear those two are like stray cats outside the fish monger's place! Add the twins (the boys...) to the other neighborhood kids and I'd have some serious truth in advertising with that shirt! So, maybe I will have to enlarge my tshirt collection. I see a habit forming, if I buy more, I'll blog it - you know, just to keep you abreast of the situation. This lovely shirt came from sugadeaux, you can get yours there.
