The Baker’s Workhorse
Smoothing icing out on a cake, handling pie pastry dough, flipping crepes, and evening out a sheet cake batter without deflating it!
How it is commonly used:
An offset spatula, like a great Chef’s Knife, can be a kitchen workhorse. Professional cake decorators use an offset spatula not only to smooth out the icing on a cake, but to also smooth out the entire process. Without an offset spatula, winding icing around a cake (whether it’s one you’re making at home, or a multi-tiered wedding cake), can be a messy chore. The bend at the handle of an offset spatula allows the baker to spread evenly with a consistent motion and over a wide surface area with little difficulty – a true blessing, if you’re looking for a tidy cake. Pie bakers find an offset spatula useful for removing sliced pie from a pan as well as moving dough from the rolling mat or surface onto the pan. When you don’t have a little helper, an offset can go a long way toward making difficult baking tasks a bit simpler, and even when you do have a helper, decorating a cake is a simple process with an offset.
Like my dad always told me, “It’s all about having the right tool for the right job.”
