    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.

    This is the best pastry tube for a perfect swirl! This is the only pastry tube i use, makes frosting cupcakes a breeze and they look extremely cute with the swirl you get from the tube.

    This is the smaller of my large closed star icing tips. I use it all the time for swirled cupcake frosting...My cupcakes look like they came from a bakery when I use this tip.

    This pastry tip is perfect for whipped cream topping as well as cake icings, and pate a choux. The strong stainless steel has not bent or rusted. Great product!

    We love the size of this tip as it is not readily available at the big box craft stores. Great buy and wonderful details for frosting!

    Love these piping tips! Easy to use for the perfect swirl on cupcakes. Easy to clean as well, great with disposable or reusable piping bags

    Love this piping tip. It's much more sturdy than the ones you can buy in a craft store (other brands), so the tip stays in the perfect pronged configuration.

    Great quality pastry tube. Love the size and construction of this tool. Makes piping icing on cupcakes easy and leaves you with a perfect finish ever time.

    I use this tip most often for piping buttercream onto cupcakes and cakes. The closed star design produces deeper cuts and more definition. Ateco piping tips are sturdy, clean up so easily and are made to last.

    I'm new to the whole cake decorating business, but this tip made it a lot easier! I've never done roses before but they actually came out really nicely! I've gotten so many compliments on my rose cakes! Thank you so much!!!

    Excellent price ! ! ! and will keep ordering more, very high quality like all ateco products very fast shipping which is a plus! Have all sizes

    I like this one, its a MED size compared to what I'm used to using. I usually use these to frost cupcakes and make designs on cakes. I'm used to smaller sizes, but this one works well. Doesn't feel cheap like others I have used from other companies

    Who doesnt love a closed star tip. Gives cupcakes a gorgeous and elegant finish, and this is the perfect size! Not too small, and not so big that you dump a ton of frosting on them, that many people end up scraping off anyway.

    from KiwiCakes Posted on

    This was the most frequently lost item in our pastry kitchen. That is because it was the most frequently used. very good, awesome that they can be purchased individually here!

    This tip was larger than I had expected. Very sturdy and well made and helps me to decorate my cupcakes like a champ. I love the prices on these tips and will be back for more!

    from Your Pit BBQ 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!!!
