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.

    Tip cupcakes pastry frosting tips great star large tube Ateco

    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!

    As with all Ateco pastry tubes, the quality of this product is excellent. I love using this extra large tube for piping frosting onto 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.

    Ateco does it again! This # 8 open star tip is a quality piece for larger frosting jobs. It is constructed well and priced to sell!

    Great to use with the canvas pastry bag for mashed potatoes. We also use this tip for our homemade whipped cream decorations. Best part is they don't rust!

    from The Meyersville inn Posted on

    This large tip works perfectly for cupcakes, you get that professional, bakery look with literally no effort. Side note: must have tip of you make or ever will make meringue cookies, gives them that nice classic ribbed look.

    from Aquatic Reflection Posted on

    The Ateco #8 pastry tube is a high quality pastry tube and not some cheap, flimsy thing. Great size for pushing a lot of quantity out in a short amount of time

    I ordered this tip by accident but it has easily become one of my favorite tips to use for frosting cupcakes! It creates a beautiful, swirled design on my cupcakes.

    Posted on

    Perfect size for a beautiful rose on cupcakes! Ive tried other sizes and this one gives you the perfect tube. Also, as far as quality goes, Ateco...in my opinion...is of much better quality than even Wilton. The steel seems to be slightly thicker and amazingly smoother.

    from Sugarbelles Posted on

    This is a really large open star tip that works great for a large decor. We love how clean our frosting pipes out of these tips. Great Value!

    from Bakeshop LLC Posted on

    The Ateco Star pastry tube is a wonderful tip for cake decorating, nice and sturdy doesn't get clogged and easy to clean. Makes decorating cakes a joy.

    from work Posted on

    I bought the 8" pastry tube and have used it in a large 16" piping bag, then I added three small bags size 12" inside with different color frosting to swirl onto cupcakes to show off the three colors for the 4th of July.

    from Jacky's Baked Goods Posted on

    One of my fav's in my icing tip collection. Decent size for a large amounts of icing jobs. Good price, locally you wouldn't find them for so inexpensive. I recommend 100% buy from Webstaurant Store

    from Couture Decorating & Event Planning Posted on

    This is a BIG, sturdy tip. I wouldn't really recommend this for a standard cupcake use, the 1/4 size is better. This tip works well with jumbo cupcakes or if you plan on piping cakes.

    from Just Velvet Posted on

    This Ateco #8 Open star pastry tube makes beautiful star shapes. It pipes easily with both royal and buttercream icings. This brand is reliable and sturdy. It also is a good price.

    We use this pastry tip to pipe beautiful swirls of frosting on our cupcakes. They have held up after years of service and are very easy to clean.

    This #8 Open Star Tip is HUGE. If you're looking to frost a Cupcake, This may be too big. Perfect for filling Cannoli's. Stainless steel, made of quality steel, so you do not have to worry about the tips bending.

    Best price on pastry bag tips ever! Worried they might get lost in shipping since they are so small but they were packed so they could be easily spotted.

    from Legends Restaurant Posted on

    After using a smaller star tip for cupcakes, I was looking for an option to speed up the frosting process while maintaining an elegant look. This larger tip makes piping easier and provides beautiful detail.

    Posted on

    I love experimenting with different tips for my cupcakes. This one is not to big, and definitely not too small. Gives a great touch to any regular sized cupcake.

    from KiwiCakes Posted on

    I frost a LOT of cupcakes so I have multiple star tips to make the job fast and easy. I've had these tips for about 2 years and the quality if superb.

    Posted on

    Used this large star tip to ice my s’mores cupcakes worked great and made for a beautiful presentation after torching the marshmallow frosting. These larger sized tips are hard to find locally but with these great prices I would just continue to order them here.

    Very affordable Pastry tube made by Ateco. Easy to clean and fits standard pastry bags. Great for making a nice swirl on top of a cupcake.

    from Countryside Cakes Posted on

    This pastry tube and the 827 tube are my absolute favorites to frost standard size cupcakes with, as they create swirled frosting with ridges that's proportional to the size of the cupcake.

    Posted on

    Very good tip for professional looking cupcakes. This is a tip that I have not been able to find in any local craft or food related stores. Allows for crushed oreos to be put in the frosting and comes out through the tip with no problems getting stuck.

    from Those Nut-Free Ladies Posted on

    Awesome products! Works well with the pastry bags bought here as well. We don't use it for desserts but to add the finished look to some of our dishes.

    Posted on

    I love using the open star pastry tube. I think i have every size too. It creates such a pretty design and the price is awesome.

    Best decorating tip for large rosettes, I use this tip on almost all of my baked goods. Looks beautiful. Very well made at a great price.

    from Doughlicious Cakes Posted on

    I was looking for a frosting tip that would be durable, cost effective and easy to clean. These frosting tips were exactly that. I've since ordered 10 more as extra surplus in my bakery- they work great!
