It’s not easy for me to admit Halloween is over. I absolutely loathe letting the season go. However, time marches forward and so must I!
My all encompassing love of Halloween doesn’t completely overshadow the joy I find in other holidays — particularly Thanksgiving and Christmas. I love to bake. Like, I really, really love to bake. The holiday season is the absolute perfect excuse to bake until I drop, and believe me, I plan to.
As a domestic baking machine, there are a few tools I find I need more than one of to keep work moving seamlessly. Frosting tips, rubber spatulas, cupcake pans, round cake pans, silicone baking mats, whisks (all the whisks!), and aprons.
The lovely folks over at Sin in Linen sent me an apron, pot holder, and oven mitt from their Skull Star Kitchen Linens set for review, and I have to say that I was mightily impressed.
The apron was a bit starchy when I received it, so I ran it through the laundry and it came out super soft. I wasn’t expecting anything fancy, so I was pleasantly surprised by the adorable bow on the pocket (a pocket which fit my phone perfectly) and the ruffle at the bottom. Unfortunately, because of the dark color, you can’t see either of those lovely attributes in my photo.
The only downside to the apron is….well, it’s black. It shows flour in spectacular fashion. However, I launder my aprons regularly, so it’s not a huge problem for me. Besides, aprons are meant to get dirty — it’s their job to protect your clothing.
The oven mitt and pot holder did their jobs well. I used them to slide out the hot oven rack and remove silicone cake pans while baking. In typical fashion, I felt a bit of warmth, but nothing came remotely close to burning me.
One of the major reasons I love baking is that I have a crazy sweet tooth. After testing out my new kitchen linens, I enjoyed a slice of warm pumpkin cake with vanilla bean brown sugar frosting. It was dee-licious!
