Customer questions about this product

What do the different pastry tube numbers mean?
For Ateco plain, open star, closed star, and French star pastry tubes, #0 - #9 indicates the size of each tip in comparison to the tube type. For example, plain #0 is the smallest plain tip available and plain #9 is the largest. Ateco's product numbers also assist with identifying tip types - plain: 800 – 809; open star: 820 – 829; closed star: 840 – 849; French star: 860 – 869.

    great pastry tip star tube cakes decorating love more works

    This tip is a great addition to our star tip collection. We use them for so many different uses and we love how they can create great rosettes!

    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.

    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.
