So I'm going to get my Associates in Baking and Pastry Arts this semester at a community college. I'm confused on what kind of hat I should get as there are several to choose from. I already bought a toque hat (http://www.pastryschoolsource.com/images/toque_white_03.jpg) but am not sure if that's the kind students wear or not. I don't want to show up to class wearing a hat that only a professor should wear lol. Can someone who knows please help me out?
What kind of hat should I get?
The new style bakers hats, not a toque. It also comes in colors.. Go online to Happychef.com to look at them

Um, are you looking at a hat for the graduation ceremony or work wear?
If the former, the "mortarboard", the other options are for advanced degrees.
If the latter, whatever your chef wants you to wear
If it is to wear in class, ask your professor/chef!
