Overall User Rating: Ateco 828 5/8" Open Star #8 Pastry Tube (August Thomsen) ( 4.9 stars from 17 reviews )

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
