Look the part
If you’re messy in the kitchen then we’d recommend you stick on an apron before starting to bake. We adore this duck egg blue one from Dunelm that has a beautiful bird print on it. It’s made with easy to wipe down PVC so cleaning it after will take just a couple of minutes! Plus, it’s at the very affordable price of £5.
