Mini Offset Spatulas
Mini offset spatulas promise to provide the control you need when spreading batter or icing. Do they deliver?
How We Tested
We’ve found that tasks like spreading batter in a cake pan or frosting cupcakes are a lot easier with a mini offset spatula. These moderately priced, blunt-edged metal pastry blades, which average about 4 1/2 inches long, are especially helpful in spreading the sticky batter in our Rustic Plum Cake recipe. We tested five models and found significant differences. Thin blades wobbled and wooden handles absorbed odors. Our top choice has a sturdy, round-tipped blade and an easy-to-grip polypropylene handle.
