Style File: Style File Aprons
Thanksgiving may be over but the holiday party season has just begun. If you're hosting friends and family this year, the hottest dish may have nothing to do with food. In tonight's Style File, we have a good reason why you'll want to kiss the cook and kiss those cotton aprons goodbye.
WSVN -- Betty crocker, take a hike because aprons have gone high fashion -- and when you wear these little numbers, you won't have any trouble getting people to sample your goods.
Elizabeth Scokin: "Simply throw on a pair or pearls or black pumps and go right from the stove to serving your guests."
Made from luxe fabrics -- like satin, tulle, taffeta and ultra suede -- Elizabeth Scokin's Haute Hostess Aprons are designed for the cook with panache.
Elizabeth Scokin: "Oprah has one, so does Rachel Ray, Diddy, so does Colin Cowie."
Sure, you can cook in them, but they're more for entertaining -- or, should I say, fooling your guests into thinking you've been in the kitchen all day.
Elizabeth Scokin: "There is a huge trend with entertaining at home, we are all looking to be the next domestic diva and these aprons kind of give you a little sass and sex appeal"
But sass and sex appeal come with a price. These glam kitchen must-haves start at $100 and can go all the way to $400.
Elizabeth Scokin: "They are more for looking than cooking."
And you'd look good serving up something sweet from Stella's Sweet Shoppe.
Robert Onuska: "It's the best cupcake you'll ever taste"
The cupcake craze has made its way to South Florida, but there's no need to travel because Stella's homemade "yumminess" will come to you.
Robert Onuska: "I am catering to events, weddings, birthday parties, private dinner parties -- anything they want, I can cater to."
Head sweety Robert Onuska whips up a recipe that is a cross between grandma's favorite and his own personal mix.
Whether it's chocolate, vanilla or red velvet, the buttercream icing makes it impossible to eat just one.
Robert Onuska: "These cupcakes are soo much better than all the other cupcakes that you'll taste because of the ingredients. The recipe and everything that goes into them to make them is extra special."
You can find the haute couture aprons online or at Rebel Boutique in Miami.
As for Stella's cupcakes, we hear some sweet storefront plans are in the works.
