tip tips great cakes cookies love clean consistent details nice

Customer Reviews


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.

Melanie from Faith & Grace Confections on 10/16/2019

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.

Julie L. from Whisk Bakery And Coffee Shop on 06/27/2019

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!

Verena V. on 02/11/2019

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.

Ashley G. from The Hop Ice Cream Cafe on 01/23/2019

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

Latoya H. on 11/01/2018

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!

Brandy M. on 09/13/2018

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!!
