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.

    Good for large decorative work to get that classic star look. Good metal construction, solid and clean when piping. Get a coupler to make your life easier when changing tips!

    from Mike's Mindful Plate Posted on

    I buy a bunch of these at a time, as tips seem to disappear around the shop. I like this open star tip for shell borders with some depth to them.

    from Sweet 1603 Posted on

    I bought this tip to do a swirl ombre design mostly,, and it was fabulous! Ateco tips are a great quality, so I didn't have much to worry about.

    Love this open star pastry tube! It is perfect for shell borders on cakes, and also for icing swirls for a fun buttercream design on cakes! It is very sturdy and holds up well in the dishwasher too.

    from Cakes by Leece Posted on

    this star tube was used to make the buttercream swirls on this cake

    I'm by no means a professional baker, but I do enjoying baking. I make cakes/cupcakes/treats about 10 times a year for various birthdays and parties/holidays etc. This works for me and the price is great.

    This tip is exactly what I was looking for. I'm going to school for baking and pastry and this is the same good brand that we have in our kits.

    Works as expected from a pastry tube or frosting tip. This is the best price for this item, so I purchase all my decorating needs here. Good service, good return policy--you get just what you order and in perfect shape

    Just the right side for moderate cake decorating. I use it for swirls and borders. Not big enough for regular sized cupcakes though but will work wonderfully on mini ones.

    This is a great durable and versatile pastry tube! It works very well for filling different types of baked goods such as eclairs and cream puffs. The pointed tips work well for puncturing the outside of the item to be filled.
