Customer Q&A Ask a Question

Can my reusable canvas pastry bag be modified to fit different couplers and tips?
No, unfortunately due to the sewed seam, this bag cannot be cut to accommodate different tips and couplers. This bag cannot be used with couplers, as the seam interferes with it sealing properly and does not offer a secure fit for steady decorating. To review reusable bags, which can be cut, and their compatible couplers and tips check out our chart, Companion Coupler, Bags, and Tips Guide.

How to Pipe a Rose with Buttercream Frosting

Ever wonder how to professionally decorate your cake? Watch this short video and learn how to style up your next cake with a classic buttercream rose.

Use these simple steps to professionally add a buttercream rose. You'll need a spatula, rose tips, a leaf tip, couplers, a flower nail, a rubber spatula, and piping bags.

    bag pastry canvas great large bags piping frosting tips Ateco

    18" Ateco pastry bag is nice and big, but for my butter cream/ shortening frostings it is not the best, the frosting seeps through and the bag becomes slimy feeling.

    It's nice to have a canvas pastry bag that just needs to get washed after each use. We use this regularly and never have any issues.

    Another great Ateco pastry bag. This canvas pastry bag is just the right size for all our needs. Its sure to last us a long time.

    from Russ' Sub Shack Posted on

    Useless to me. This is a very well constructed pastry bag and is very high quality. But every adaptor i currently own will not allow me to screw the tube holder down (the end seam is too thick). I even purchased like 5 different size adaptors hoping one would work. But to no avail. But im just disappointed. I dont like the disposable bags or the plastic lined fabric ones. Plus if i cut this bag it would start to fray at the end that was cut. So i guess this will be in a storage box in one of my storage rooms.

    This is a very well made ateco 18" canvas piping bag. It is very good for piping dams, or completing large orders and holds up to everyday use.

    This is a nice, large sized pastry bag that will surely hold up well over time. Good cloth and plastic, with solid stitching. I recommend it.

    from Mike's Mindful Plate Posted on

    I use a lot of pastry bags, and really love these heavy duty canvas ones by Ateco. They are very durable, hold a lot of icing at this 18" size, and are comfortable to hold for extended periods of time. I use these for piping ruffles and roses on my cakes, as well as for doing buttercream tops on my cupcakes. They wash up well, and overall are a great piping bag.

    from Jennie's Cake Creations Posted on

    This Canvas Pastry Bag is perfect for anything. You can use it for Cookies. Cakes, ice Cream decoration, Whipping cream. Buy few more extra to use same time with different colors. So you don't have to wash. Heavy duty bag for a lifetime to use. 5 Stars.

    At first I was shocked how large the piping hole is. I mean huge! (I could fit my thumb through it with room to spare.) Fortunately I had ordered a large open start piping tube to go along with it. I was able to accomplish my task with the bag and tube, but I need a large coupler. Don't forget to order one with this bag. Also, I wasn't expecting a coating-less bag. But it held up to a buttercream, so we'll give it a go.

    from Sea Level Bakery + Coffee Posted on

    This bag is how it is described, I was just expecting it to be coated so the liquid/sugary/stickiness doesn't seem through when I use it for fresh whipped cream. It is a nice big size, I just ordered the wrong type bag. This bag does work well with all of our tips.

    from Ode To Food & Drinks Posted on

    This is a good bag for larger "stiff" frostings. They are not very friendly when it comes to clean up though, the canvas is very sticky and the whole is rather large.

    from Tripps Primal Farm and Kafé Posted on

    I must say that this is my favorite piping bag by far. It is so convenient. I think this one is great for large quantities of cupcakes and cakes. Highly recommended.

    from The Tea Room Posted on

    we ordered the pastry bag and i wasn't is it will be good enough to use. since we received them i am putting them in a good use. i wash them after each use . i like it .

    from Tina's Basket Posted on

    You can't go wrong with Ateco brand products. I love the size for piping cupcakes and cakes. It is easy to hand wash and dry.

    from Sweet Sunny's Posted on

    A great staple! I couldnt make it through the day without these at our bakery! I have used many different types of pastry bags over the years and have tried different materials but you just cannot beat the canvas. I used to use the cheap plastic disposable bags but I never got the comfort or ease of use of the old trusty canvas bag. They seem to clean so much easier than the typical plastic bags as well and withstand the heat much better without breaking down. Destined to become a staple the first time its used

    from Sugarbelles Posted on

    I recommend this bag for pastry because it supports good pressure and easy to wash, the material is suitable for multiple uses and I think that is your best choice ,

    from √°guila bakery Posted on

    This canvas pastry bag is perfect for hot applications. It is very sturdy and is one of the most used items in our kitchen on a daily basis.

    from Trivits Urban, LLC Posted on

    Just like the 16" these are great for an assortment of uses in the kitchen. We also used these for our mashed potatoes, whipped cream, guacamole, sour cream, butter, and a few other things to jazz up our dishes.

    from The Meyersville inn Posted on

    Great pastry bag that can be reused over and over again. Can be easily washed, turn inside out. To save money from purchasing plastic disposable for everything buy one of these instead, Eco friendly.

    Very durable and easy to clean. We really like this product and will continue to purchase this brand. We have found that it really holds up to everyday use.
