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 smaller cupcakes and other items that aren't very large. Good metal construction, solid and clean when piping. Get a coupler to make your life easier when changing tips!

    First...the QUALITY of these tips is amazing! I left a few tips in a bowl of water overnight only to return the next morning and feel the betrayal of what felt like an old friend....EVERY ONE of my Wilt** tips had rust on them however, not ONE of my Atecos had any bit of rust at all! This, in my opinion, causes a huge safety issue! I can't have something like these tips that may harbor some rust...or worse inside them where I cannot see it and feel good about what I am serving my customers! Needless to say...These are my new friend....goodbye Wilt**, you shall never again betray me!

    from Sugarbelles Posted on

    This is the pastry tube that I use the most. This Ateco brand #5 open star pastry tube is great for making rosettes on cakes and cupcakes. It is also great for piping borders with both buttercream and royal icing. Making larger stars is easy with this pastry tube. This pastry tube pipes very cleanly and easily.

    This is my most used piping tip for swirling cupcakes. They're durable and made of stainless steel so won't rust like other tips that are made of regular steel.

    These are the best for frosting a lot of cupcakes. Works well with 12" and 18" bags. Will be buying more, lots more. You will too!

    The pink cupcakes were made using the Star #5

    This brand of star tip is the best. Durably made and easy to wash. It makes decorating desserts and borders on larger cakes a breeze for even the most inexperienced decorator.

    This is the best pastry tip to have. Ateco is a very durable brand. I've had my tip for 2 years and its in perfect condition still.

    Posted on

    This tip is perfect for frosting mini cupcakes, as the amount of frosting that flows through the tube is manageable and is a nice shape for smaller items.

    Posted on

    So very happy i purchased this pastry tube. The price was awesome and the tip is just great. I had no issues and the designed was great.

    Posted on

    Basically just a larger version of the 1M tip - works great for larger bridal cupcakes or cupcakes for any occasion. Also makes large starts around the edge of a 12" cake. Great Ateco quality.
