The icing spatula is an essential tool in any baker’s kitchen because it makes decorating easier and more precise. They are used to get the icing onto the cake and to smooth out the top of the cake so that it is even. Decorating cakes has never been easier with the help of icing spatulas.
The icing spatula is typically a small, flat utensil with a rounded edge made of stainless steel or plastic that can be used for smoothing the surface of cakes and other desserts. The flat side allows for the application of thick layers of frosting or ganache.
When decorating a cake, people typically use two types of tools: a flat spatula to create smooth icing and a comb-like spatula to create raised icing. A new type of tool has emerged: an icing spatula that is like a small palette knife used for painting. This instrument can be used to spread an even layer of icing over the cake or to decorate it with graduated layers.
