Ateco Piping Bags, Short Spatulas and Pastry Tubes

Ateco Piping Bags, Short Spatulas and Pastry Tubes

Hi, this is Julie Bashore from the Sugar Arts Institute. Let’s have fun with some of the Ateco piping tips. Working with their disposable piping bags that come on a roll, they tear off really easily, I like to work with the smaller 12” bags but they also have 18”. Working with a coupler, remove the nut from the base of the coupler and place the base in the bag as tightly as you possibly can. Working with a pair of scissors, above the screw marks, just cut the edge of the bag and remove that. And then you’re going to choose the piping tube that you’d like to work with, place it on the top of the coupler, and screw it down firmly. This is a piping bag stand; it’s very convenient, especially if you’re piping alone or you don’t want to interrupt anyone to fill the bags, it holds the bags really well and you can slip your icing in there. This is the short-ended Ateco spatula which is quite wide so it’s really convenient for picking up the buttercream. Pull the bag up, place it on the table, and spread the buttercream down to the end. And then of course it’s important not to forget to burp the bag. This piping tip that I’m using is a ruffling pipe piping tip, and it’s absolutely amazing how quickly it works. Have a look, come in close. Doesn’t that give an awesome ruffle? Let’s work with another tip. This is the shell tip; don’t forget to burp your bag. This is great for a border; in fact, I sometimes use it on the edge of my ruffle. It gives a really nice shell design. The tip itself is curved so it gives a nice puffy shell appearance to it. Ateco has a new set that they’ve brought out: polycarbonate plastic piping tips, they are large tips, very strong and very precise in the edging. This one is a basket weave design; it really makes an awesome border. Place the bag over the holder, again, don’t forget to push the butter cream all the way to the edge and burp the bag. It has two edges, a flat edge and a scalloped edge so this makes a great ribbon design; you can also wiggle it or make just a ribbon and also wiggle this. Flip it over and wiggle. Great for basket weave.

    The Ateco 1385 4" Baker's Spatula (August Thomsen) is a great cake spatula. The angled handle keeps the icing off your hands and is less messy.

    from Ruffled Feathers Posted on

    This is great for icing small cakes. I highly recommend this. The angle makes all the difference. You can also dip in boiling water to smooth out your buttercream

    from Cheryl Lantz Posted on

    This is a basic baker's spatula. A very good value. I purchased a number of baker's spatulas in different shapes and lengths to see what works best for me when decorating cakes, and I resort to this spatula every time.

    These offset spatulas have endless uses in a bakery setting. We use them to frost cupcakes and small cakes, spread ganache on brownies and to portion butter from larger blocks. A few of this brand have lost one of the small metal pieces that hold the handle and the spatula together, but luckily they didn't fall in to any batter or food. Just keep an eye out for them coming loose.

    Love these off sets. Very durable. Withstands abuse from my bakery. Highly recommended. Don't waste your time with any other brand. Cannot so as l as these have a wooden handle.

    This is a great basic tool to have in your decorating arsenal. The crank of it make it incredibly easy to frost cupcakes, cutout cookies, and is perfect for the tops of layer cakes. For this price, I would recommend everyone have one of these handy in their home or business

    This offset spatula works and feels great. We can do some delicate work with this little tool because the rigidness and flexibility is just right.

    from Sussman's Bakery Posted on

    Don't let the size of this spatula fool you, she can perform really well, flipping a steak or taking cookies out of baking tray. Good quaity, nice handle and above all great price.

    We use this to spread whipped cream for old fashion ice box cakes, and it works amazing. Its small enough to be easy to use and sturdy enough to give a nice smooth surface to out cakes. It has a nice wood handle and holds up to our dishwasher

    from old fields Posted on

    This spatula works great on both cupcakes and sugar cookies in my experience. While it might still work for larger applications I think it really shines in the small items.

    Very durable and great for chocolate production or spreading butter creams and other pastry items. The offset handle allows for great control. Super easy to wash!

    This Ateco 4” baker’s spatula is a necessary tool for any baker/ cake decorator. While it is a bit smaller than some I’ve used in the past, it holds up well and is totally worth the price.

    I adore these spatulas! Not only are they great for smoothing cake batter, etc. to get a flat surface on your baked goods, they are also the perfect size for getting muffins, cupcakes and mini pies out of the tin perfectly. I always try to keep 3 or 4 on hand!

    I had been looking all around for an offset spatula like this. It works perfectly when I ice cakes and the fel of this spatula. Is great

    from The Hungry Pelican Posted on

    Makes icing a cake a breeze! The design is comfortable to use and the size is perfect for smaller cakes as well as pastries. Very pleased!

    This is completely useless. They glue the package onto the spatula and it is impossible to get it off without bending it. They sent me a replacement and it had the same problem.
