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.

    This is a very nice open star design at #8 it will make very large star designs on your cake or cupcakes. Be careful when using larger tubes like this because your filling will come out a lot quicker

    I love these things! They give such a nice, professional look to homemade cupcakes with just a couple of minutes' extra time, and if you get the disposable pastry bags there's no mess to clean up afterwards. I've started a collection of pastry tubes in different sizes and shapes, and I see the newest ones on the market are Russian pastry tubes which come in unusual designs not seen in the American ones. Here's hoping Webstaurant store starts to carry them too!

    We use this tip for some of our character cupcakes to add texture to them. The open star makes it easy to quickly dab frosting on our cupcakes.

    from Sweet Pea's Cupcakery Cafe Posted on

    It's yet another great Ateco tube/tip. This one has a large opening. It's great for piping, larger swirls, fillings, and more. It uses the larger size coupler.

    I love this open start tip as it lends a good amount of icing for a thick shell boarder and looks lovely as a reverse shell

    Ateco tips are my favorite ones to have in the kitchen. I Shevardnadze yet to have a single one of their pastry tips melt on me, which I can't say for other brands. I love this large star nozzle because you can get beautiful designs from it with minimal effort. Simply put down and wiggle the bag up and the nozzle does the rest

    Nice tip for large dollops and really fat pipes. 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

    These Ateco tips are tried and true. The are not easily bent or smashed. They hold their shape even when thrown into a commercial sink and get beat around. The icing comes out smooth and perfect every time. Great for icing cupcakes!

    These are great. They last for a long time and create a perfect frosting look. They can be a bear to clean on one end, but you will get the hang of it. The price is great too.
