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.

    spatula great perfect cakes small offset Icing size cake frosting

    The Ateco 1385 is a quality made Icing spatula from a quality manufacturer. The blade is a smooth stainless steel as opposed to brushed stainless steel the rubber handles ateco spatulas have. The handle is a nice lightweight wood which can be made as durable as plastic with a bit of butcher block oil. The blade is sturdy but springy enough with a perfect offset angle. The webstaurantstore price is unbeatable.

    This is a great spatula. A little more flimsy than I wanted it to be but I do like how the wood handle feels versus a plastic one.

    from courageous bakery Posted on

    These are a great price and we'll made. We use them everyday when we make chocolate and they stay sturdy. Only problem is that the packaging comes with a strong adhesive that is difficult to remove from the spatula.

    Wonderful offset spatula. Great for icing cakes and decorating cupcakes. The size makes it easy to use and get the frosting nice and smooth. Will buy again.

    This is an icing spatula but I actually use it as a better spreader. Works great! I get tried of constantly using and dirtying up knives for butter. This works perfect! I also love the look of the wooden handle!

    This spatula is the perfect utensil addition to my kitchen! It has multiple uses (I use it for butter spreading). Love the design and appearance. buy this product!!

    This icing spatula is small and great for icing single layer or double layer cakes. The spatula has some flex for moving the icing around and a nice sturdy wooden handle. It’s perfect for what I need it for!

    Works great on small cakes or cupcakes!

    I love this offset spatula! It's perfect for smoothing the buttercream on our sugar cookies or touching up spots on our layer cakes. We are very pleased with this product.

    Small offset spatula. Perfect for frosting!

    Ateco has made a name for themselves in the bakers field. If you are looking for a product. Not sure of a brand. If Ateco is selling it. You can purchase it with confidence. With that said. This is one of those times. This spatula is a great size for multiple purposes. You can use it to mix food coloring in your icing. It is great for crumb coating your cake. To use as you please with decorating. From a perfect smooth coat finish. As to this cake with spiral swirling. As seen in the picture. You can think of it. This spatula can help you execute it with perfection.

    Swirl to a cake

    Typical small offset spatula. Not a huge fan of the wooden handle since it can make it a little harder to clean, but it does the job that I need it to do.

    This little spatula exceeded my expectations....Especially for the low low price!. It's very nicely constructed from hardwood and Stainless steel. The spatula has a nice strong back bone. It's the perfect tool for intricate plating presentations.

    Frosted this whole cake with nothing but the icing spatula and a ziplock bag piping tube

    Great little spatula! Solid construction, quality wood, smooth polished blade. We use this in our bakery for icing cakes. It's comfortable to hold, and the small size is great for detailed work.

    from Abstruse Pastry Company LLC Posted on

    This is probably one of the most used tools in our arsenal. The offset blade is great for getting those tricky angles. This is also a great tool for plating.

    from jimtown store Posted on

    This is my favorite sized spatula. You can use it for almost any frosting project and the small sizes makes it easy to move around. It washes up great in the dishwasher too.

    from Adams Posted on

    We can never have too many of these small offset spatulas in our bakery kitchen. We use it daily for filling our swedish cinnamon rolls as well as spreading icing, frosting and more.

    from Fika, LLC Posted on

    This offset bakers spatula is the essential tool for frosting cakes. I use it both to apply and smooth frosting on cakes, as well as when frosting cookies. The stainless steel blade cleans up easily and holds it's edge well.

    frosting a small cake

    For: Home Use Needed an offset spatula small enough to handle smoothing out icing on smaller cakes. Also worked well for younger children - perfect size for my younger niece when doing an "Aunt and Me baking day".

    Another great quality and value. The taper offset makes it much easier to apply jellies, icings and the like in a smooth and even fashion.
