I can't believe that it's taken mankind so long to come up with this wonder of modern bake ware.
I mean, we've put a man on the moon, cloned a sheep, mapped the mysteries of the human chromosome, yet it wasn't until last year that this was invented: The Mini Spatula. It's like the Napoleon of kitchen utensils, small but powerful.
For goodness sake, there have been spatulas and pancake turners around for centuries, but when it's the very first piece out of the pan you can't get the spatula down in there without tearing things up and you end up resorting to a fork but the fork rips half the bottom off the piece and so you find yourself digging pathetically in the bottom of the pan to piece things back together because you're darned if you're going to let perfectly good calories go to waste like that.
Who was it who finally said, "You know, what I really need me is a mini spatula and I'll be able to pop this piece of cake right on outta there"?
I got mine as a topper on a Christmas present and had no idea such thrills were in store for me. I cannot live without this. You must get one for yourself.
I've requested that it be buried with me when I die because if there's cake in heaven (and I have it on good authority there will be), I'm going prepared.
