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.

    great all-around, mid-size pastry tip. ateco piping tips are super well made and last forever. this is a standard mid-range size so if you're not sure what size you want, this is a good way to go.

    Smaller tip we use with smaller couplers. The small open star tip makes it easy to add smaller decorations to cakes and cupcakes. We use theses pretty frequently.

    from Sweet Pea's Cupcakery Cafe Posted on

    This Ateco tube/tip also has an opening on the smaller side. It creates very pretty detail for decorations. This one uses the medium size coupler.

    Love to decorate cup cakes with these tips, just decorated 200 cup cakes for 4th of July with red, white and blue frosting, the kids loved them

    from work Posted on

    Nice tip for doing large decorative tasks and writing. Love the scalloped edges. Good metal construction, solid and clean when piping. Get a coupler to make your life easier when changing tips!

    Smaller size frosting tip. It works great for mini cupcakes, decorating cupcakes/cookies and decorating cakes. It is easy to wash and maintain. Ateco makes good products.

    Beautiful tip for piping cupcakes and cake borders. High quality that does not bend or rust. Leaves nice clean appearance in the frosting. Would recommend to others.

    Being a bakery we ice a lot of cakes. This #2 star tip is the perfect size for a border around sheet cakes. It is small enough that it doesn't look to big on a 1/4 sheet cake but still is a big enough to do a 1/2 sheet cake and look great!

    from Simply Davids Posted on

    Great size, very sturdy, does not rust or warp easily. Webstaurantstore.com has the best prices as well, very happy with my purchase of this decorating tip.

    This Ateco tip is really my favorite, in general Ateco is a really quality company, and their pastry tips are just one of theany products I enjoy using... Great product!

    from Zest Posted on

    Ateco makes great products and this tip is just another in a long line of them. I have this open star tip along with the 5/8 and have yet to be dissapointed.

    from Just Velvet Posted on

    Star tip not the best quality but does the job. Star tip comes out nice but accidently fell on floor and someone stepped on it and it's flat now and unusable.

    Posted on

    This makes for a pretty petite design whist piping on cakes and cupcakes. Plus, Ateco makes quality products for cake decorating. Piping with this is very easy on the hands, and it makes a distinctive design to my baked goods. The price is great, too.

    I don't really use this much for decorating, but the star tip makes it very easy to pipe fillings into cupcakes! I don't even have to cute and hallow the cupcake out.

    Posted on

    This tip adds a bit of decoration to icing swirls. I like the open star tip because it seldom gets clogged with icing in the middle of a swirl.
