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.

    A good spatula is an essential piece of equipment of any pastry kitchen (or even a savory kitchen). The only spatulas we use are Ateco brand (specifically these with the wooden handles). Take care of them, and they'll last you a lifetime.

    This is quite small, but it's not flimsy and has a decent weight to it - it's very easy to work with. Also good as a turner for cooking very small delicate things.

    from Ian Sparke Posted on

    These are well made spatulas. They are great for taking delicate items off a sheet pan. The large spatulas are bulky and have more surface area to wreck delicate treats.

    I've been looking for this length of spatula with a nice handle and finally landed this one. It work very well. I would recommend it in every baker's kitchen.

    i like the versatility of this spatula. I like to use it for icing cupcakes or making dotted designs on my cakes. It's also great for drizzling chocolate. So far works great.

    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.

    from Flying Monkey Bakery Posted on

    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.

    Posted on

    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

    Perfect for spreading frosting

    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
