ORBLUE Angled Metal Icing Spatula Review

As a kid, I decorated many cakes, some for 4-H and many for family and friends. Now as a mom, I still decorate cakes for my kiddos. One of the hardest parts of cake decorating for me is spreading out the icing for a smooth base coat. I have tried using various knives and spatulas, but nothing that I already own works sensationally. I have previously reviewed kitchen products from ORBLUE, all of which I love. Thus, when recently offered the chance to review a three-pack of ORBLUE angled metal icing spatulas, I eagerly accepted the opportunity.

Price

The three-pack of ORBLUE angled metal icing spatulas currently retails for $25.24 with a sale price of $15.87 on Amazon. Other sets of three similar metal spatulas costs roughly the same price. Many single icing spatulas cost significantly more than the $5.29 of each of the ORBLUE spatulas. I therefore rate the current sale price of the angled metal icing spatulas from ORBLUE very positively.

Design

Made with flexible but sturdy stainless steel blades that provide optimal durability for years of use, the ORBLUE angled metal icing spatulas are great for frosting cakes, cupcakes, cookies, pastries, and more. The three pack comes with 6-inch, 8-inch, and 10-inch blades, all with 5-inch handles. Designed with plastic handles that offer a good grip and optimal comfort and control, that offset knives help you more easily frost hard-to-reach areas. The metal icing spatulas are top-rack dishwasher-safe.

Performance

Who really needs an excuse to eat cake? To test out my new three-pack of ORBLUE angled metal icing spatulas, my kids and I headed to the local grocery store to pick out some chocolate fudge cake mix and cream cheese icing that I colored pink at the request of my daughter. Once the cake cooled, I started spreading on the pink icing with my new icing spatulas. Compared with a regular knife, these spatulas definitely spread frosting so much more easily. I kind of mangled the middle of one of the cakes, and, despite the crumbs, I was still able to spread the icing on smoothly with one of these spatulas without a ton of crumbs getting in the frosting!

I really appreciate the three different sizes of blades. I found that the small 6-inch blade was perfect for spreading the icing between the two layers of cake. The small blade was also perfect for smoothing out the icing on the sides of the cake. I also found the middle 8-inch side for icing the top of the cake. If I were working with a larger surface such as a sheet cake, the large 10-inch blade would have smoothing out icing on a large cake easy peasy. The three different sizes make icing cakes of all sizes easier! The stainless steel blades are very durable, and I additionally appreciate the plastic handles, which I prefer over wooden-handled utensils.

Washing the ORBLUE angled metal icing spatulas is also incredibly easy. While you can wash the spatulas by hand, you can also use the top rack of your dishwasher. I hate washing dishes by hand, so I of course used my dishwasher to clean up my dirty spatulas (after licking off the remaining frosting first). Any residue washes cleaning away off the metal. Because of the plastic handles, I do not have to worry about leaving the clean spatulas in my dishwasher too long because the plastic will not mildew or decay like a wooden handle. Cleanup of the angled metal icing spatulas from ORBLUE is a breeze in a dishwasher or sink.

Final Verdict

My new angled metal icing spatulas from ORBLUE make icing cakes super easy! Made with flexible but sturdy stainless steel blades that provide optimal durability for years of use, these spatulas are great for frosting cakes, cupcakes, cookies, pastries, and more. I really appreciate the three different sizes of blades — 6-inch, 8-inch, and 10-inch — which make icing cakes of any size easier. I also like the 5-inch plastic handles, which provide a good grip and optimal comfort and control and without any of the worry of wood. Washing the spatulas is as easy as using the top rack of my dishwasher! If you are shopping for new icing spatulas, I highly recommend the three-pack of ORBLUE angled metal icing spatulas.
