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.

    This pastry tube helps me create Beautiful Piped cupcakes! my customers love my piping skills and I like this much better than the smaller wilton star pastry tip

    These are the perfect tips to quickly and easily ice cupcakes or decorate a cake with the popular rosette design. The open star tip also allows decorating with a chunky icing (cookies and cream, chocolate chip, etc.) At this price, buy several.

    Ateco's pastry tubes are the finest in the industry! They are seamless and their edges are smooth! These tips on the star tubes are easy to bend in to modify the frosting's exact shape.

    Ateco #6 Open Star Tip

    I wasnt really familiar with the star tube until I purchased these, and I am sold! This is a great size for regular sized cupcakes, and gives a slightly different touch than the more delicate closed star.

    from KiwiCakes Posted on

    Personally, this is my favorite tip for icing cupakes. And for the price I can can get several at a time. It's also a nice size for piping mousses and whipped cream on pastries. I've even seen it used, where I work, for piping compound butters decoratively on plates. Awesome tip for the price and definitely recommend it to both home and professional cooks and bakers. It's a good standard size tip to have on hand.

    We purchased a couple of these tips to use to fill cannolis or decorate cupcake tops for display in our case in the cafe. Luckily they are easily replaceable for when they get lost.

    Very affordable Pastry tube made by Ateco. Gives you that standard swirl on top of cupcakes and treats. Easy to clean and fits standard pastry bags.

    use this tip to make dutchess potatoes at least twice a month. Be careful though! These tips always seem to get lost in the kitchen. Don't throw them in the dishsink. You'll never see them again.
