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.

    tips tip great cakes Love details consistent nice works drizzles
    My baking and pastry class had used this for decorating sugar cookies and it’s really helpful. We were able to make intricate designs for our sugar cookies because of this tip. It’s not really easy to clean because you have to get all inside but I’d still recommend it. It’s useful.
    This tip is very high quality and the round opening is nice and clean no imperfections. Works great for fine detail work for my cookies.
    WE LOVE THESE!! These are similar to other #2 size tips and are great for decorating the smaller details of cakes and cookies. These are slightly larger than a #1 size tip, so they don't get clogged as much.
    These tips are way better than the Wilton tips, but not as nice as the PME Supatubes. These are seamless, just like the Supatubes. I use these with Royal Icing, and clean up is a breeze. They pipe a nice consistent line!
    This piping tip produces a consistent thin stream of icing exactly as it is advertised to. We would defiantly order this product in the future.
    This tip works pretty well when using to make drip cakes. I was thinking that the tip might be too small but it actually worked out
    This tip works great when you want to highlight writing or have a daintier drizzle. I like using it for cake pop drizzles and for doing small details on cakes. It's a little easier to use than the #1 tip and not as big as the #3. Ateco makes great tips!
    Love Love Love this brand! Their piping tips are awesome and very rust resistant. I use multiple tips to have different colors at the same time and they are always consistent and flows very easily. Overall, great purchase!!
