Baking Beauties

makes 'em wanna help out!

We know, Cupcake, back in the day you burned up the Easy-Bake.

Despite having graduated to more serious culinary pursuits, you still enjoy an old-fashioned sugar showdown with your budding Betty Crocker.

Such occasions call for an adorable apron from Funktion. Garishly girly, the patterned creations serve up colorful, ruffled combinations. In other words, they’re sweet enough for your little sugar pie.

Available in coordinating adult sizes, the frothy confections allow moms and daughters to sport matching gear in the kitchen.

And that’s the icing on the cake.

Available at Urban Cottage, 998 North Highland Avenue, Virginia Highland (404-815-9993); online at funktionhome.com.
