    A well made tip by Ateco. A nice BIG tip perfect for quickly icing cupcakes or even making designs on cakes. Very nice quality and can't beat the price.

    from TRW Posted on

    These tips work well with all of our pastry bags. We use this tip mostly for chocolate mousse & it works great for that. So far, no rusting!

    Ateco 826 frosting tip is a medium size tip and perfect for frosting cupcakes faster and easier. I also enjoy using it for decorating cakes.

    These work great along with the pastry bag. I used these when I'm making cupcakes or deviled eggs. The clean up is easy as well, wash them and put them up til next time.

    from Best rate referrals Posted on

    so much fun!

    This 1/2" Star tip is my favorite all round decorating tip. Its small enough to make nice boarders without looking clunky, yet large enough to get the job done quickly and efficiently.

    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.

    from Sterling Ridge Posted on

    If you can only get one pastry tip, make it this one. This is a great tip for icing cupcakes or for doing basic borders on cakes.

    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, my Atecos were sitting there almost smiling at me because they had not one bit of rust anywhere on them! This, in my opinion, causes a huge safety issue! I can't have something like these tips that may harbor some rust 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 tip is super easy to use to make all kinds of decorative foods...deviled eggs, cupcake topping, cream puffs, cheese spread on crackers, pie toppings, etc.

    These larger star tips really come in handy when working on our larger cakes and big cupcakes. We love the detail of the pipe and the quality of the metal.

    from Bakeshop LLC Posted on

    These ateco icing tips are great for icing cupcakes and filling various cakes and cupcakes. I would definitely reccomend and plan to buy more of them

    from Zeppe's Pizzeria Posted on

    Another one of my fave's in my decorating tip collection. This gets me out of those days of small piping on with the number #6 tip my decorating jobs complete much faster with the larger width. Must buy!! AMAZING PRICE

    from Couture Decorating & Event Planning Posted on

    This is one of my go-to piping tips. It's so versatile. I use this tip most often to pipe cupcakes, but I also love it for filling twice baked potatoes and deviled eggs. As with all Ateco tips, it's sturdy, well made and one of those tips that you might want to have several of. I've tried other brands, but Ateco is my favorite, by far. So glad Webstaurant carries them!

    Piping strawberry Swiss meringue buttercream on mini cupcakes using the Ateco 826 1/2" open star tip.

    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.

    from Sweet Katie Cakes Posted on

    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.

    from JW Cakes Posted on

    When I want to go for the open Star look, I go for this Ateco #6 tip. Perfect tip for frosting Cupcakes! Stainless Steel, so no worrying about it rusting while sitting out to dry. This is compatible with the Medium Sized Ateco Coupler set.

    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.

    from Contata Voluptates Posted on

    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.

    from Green Market Natural Foods Posted on

    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.

    from Countryside Cakes Posted on

    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.

    Very nice price on this ateco product. You can do many things with this half inch star tip. You can make a really nice cake with this guy.
