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.

    Atreco is a tried and true product. I use this tip for piping cupcakes and for cake decorating and it works great. Definitely recommend and would buy again.

    A great, strong tip for a ruffled buttercream swirl. It is perfect for icing cupcakes. Holds its form well and is not easily bent. I prefer Ateco over Wilton, hands down.

    ateco 845 , good pricing comparing to any other local craft stores very solid and well hard quality for heavy duty use , we will get all others

    from Aslan Khan LLC Posted on

    The closed star 845 pastry tube is a good size for larger borders or piping on standard size cupcakes. They are very well made just make sure you hand wash them.

    This tip works wonderful...it makes a beautiful boarder thats not to thick for smaller sheet cakes..I have even used it for mini cupcakes and works well too

    This is a nice closed star pastry tube tip. This will make very nice stars and being closed it will make them more concentrated. Now since this is a closed star you may need to use more force but be careful since this is still large at #5

    Posted on

    I've purchase at least a dozen of these pastry tubes in different sizes and designs, and keep adding to my collection. It's incredibly easy to give homemade cupcakes a professional look with them, and the prices at Webstaurant Store beat those of any other place out there.

    The #5 tube is the closed star tube we begin to use for standard size cupcakes, as always they are rust free and easy to keep nice.

    from Sweet Pea's Cupcakery Cafe Posted on

    This is another great Ateco tube/tip to have. It's great for swirls on top of cupcakes and more. It uses the medium coupler. It's well made and keeps it's shape after use and cleaning.

    Beautifully pipes any frosting. Since it's not the largest star, it's great for any project! Since it's stainless steel, I have no problem tossing it into the utensil holder in the dishwasher and effectively cleaning it. Couplers definitely are a great addition, especially if you're new to baking!

    Posted on

    I piled on the whipped cream using this tip! Even though it's not the large star, it's still really effective!

    Ateco 845 7/16" Closed Star #5 Pastry Tube (August Thomsen) this is the medium sized narrow armed star if you looking to make that pattern in icing or dough this is for you

    Great size for a variety of jobs, I love the way the deep grooves look. 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

    The # 5 closed star frosting tip is a great medium sized tip for frosting. It creates a great swirl for topping cupcakes of all sizes.

    Posted on

    The open star frosting tip is one of my favorites. My cupcakes look super adorable when frosted with this tip. This tip quickly became my go to tip.

    This is a large start it and it works great for either icing cupcakes or make it larger borders on cakes in for the price you really can't beat it works great

    Large star top border

    If you want to frost fancy cupcakes in a hurry the Ateco star pastry tube is a wonderful tip to make the job quick and easy. I use it often in my baking for college kids on a daily basis.

    from Boise Bible College Posted on

    This tip is fun because its small enough to do small details but big enough to do some fun things with - I only use it for cupcakes and it does the job really well love the results!

    from Best rate referrals Posted on

    This tip was small for what I wanted to do but the quality is very high. The only thing I wish Webstaurant will stop doing is putting the label/sticker directly on the item. I think it should be in plastic then have the sticker. It leaves a nasty residue when you tear it off/ Other than that its nice.

    from The Tea Room Posted on

    We use this tip all the time to pipe our cupcakes and rosette cakes. Great finishing details. Would recommend to anyone looking to add variety of size.

    from Bakeshop LLC Posted on

    Love this tip! High quality construction, easy to clean, and the piped frosting looks fantastic. I use it mainly on cakes as I usually prefer to use larger tips for cupcakes.

    Posted on

    Ateco brand Pastry Tips are my favorite. Great quality, and made with true Stainless Steel. This Tip is compatible with the MEDIUM sized Ateco Coupler.

    Posted on

    This is my go to tip for a fool proof cupcake topping! It is great quality, and all of my Ateco Tips have been a great resource in the bakery. This one is great and comes out beautiful and elegant!

    from Hardcore Sweet Posted on

    Perfect Bakery Swirl!

    a good size for frosting cupcakes. can also be used to add designs to cakes and possibly pies (I haven't used it yet for pies, but my sister claims it works well!)

    Posted on

    These closed star piping tips or tubes as Ateco likes to call them are great to pipe buttercream on cupcakes. You'll need a large coupler for these.

    Posted on

    This is a nice larger size star tip! It is good for garnishing individual lemon or key lime tarts with fresh whipped cream and berries!!!

    from kedbys kreations & party rental Posted on

    Star tip

    We love Ateco! So much better than the other brands found in craft stores. They don't rust, wash well, and work with standard couplers. We purchase a ton to have on-hand as we tend to throw them away with the pastry bags! Oops!
