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.

    Very easy to wash and sanitize. Keeps are icing fresh and clean for the next day. Very durable and sturdy they hold up very well
    Very pleased, used for intended use. Sturdy and durable, easy to clean. Nice fit on tips. Also used as cover for icing dispenser, absolutely perfect!
    Great piping tip covers. The price is unbeatable and it's nice to have lots of these on hand. They are dishwasher safe and wash up nicely.
    These covers are a must have, especially when working with multiple piping bags or on extended baking projects. Keeps icing fresh and ready for next use without fear of contamination or mess.
    These work great for keeping your icing tips from getting crusty when not in use. They don't really work if you take off the coupler, but with the coupler on, they fit perfectly!
    The Ateco piping tip ocvers in the 4 pack and life savors! No more wrapping tips in plastic wrap! Finally found something i can use instead!
    So first I bought the decorating set But the cream was getting dry or yellowish. Then I decided to add tip covers to my list too.
    I didn't know I needed these until I purchased them!!!! allows me to safe my frosting in my piping bag for later. saves a lot of messes.
    I love these covers. First of all, price is very cheap, but the material is not. I love how now I can put my icing bags with frosting inside the fridge with these covers. I don't have to worry about the icing on the tip hardening before I can use it.
    I only recently stumbled across these piping tip covers when looking for a cleaner method while piping with multiple bags. I don't store icing once I am done, so I cannot account for how well they close and store in the fridge, but for short-term coverage while piping to reduce dried spots or messes, these are great!
    The covers work great after I am done decorating a buttercream cake with a plastic pastry bag. I put the tube cover on and store in the freezer. When I’m ready to fill Macarons I remove the cover and am able to use the buttercream.
    I purchased these to help keep my frosting from drying out and getting all over my work surface between uses. They don't stay on very well. They are really only for "covering" as there isn't any way to secure them or snap them to my coupler base, so they come off easily if the pastry bags get moved.
    These pastry tube covers will help ensure the icing inside your pastry tubes will remain fresh as well ask keep them from hardening. These pastry tube covers are made by Ateco and will connect easily to a standard pastry bag coupler.
    These are great tube covers, I like to make frosting to decorate a cake, and then once its decorated stick the extra in the fridge and these are perfect for capping the bags to prevent it from drying out so when I take the cake to the party I have some bags of extra frosting to fix any last minute messes.
    Great basic tip covers to keep your frosting or filling from drying out. The plastic is much sturdier than I expected. They do stain with heavy dye product but I do not care if they are pretty as long as they work.
    These tube covers are a great idea, and work great for small pastry tips. I wish they were available in a larger size so I could use them with my large pastry tips, but if you are using small tips these do a great job of keeping your frosting fresh while in your piping bags.
    The whole system with the couplers make things so much easier. A previous place I worked just stuffed a tip into the bag and that was that, but it created such a mess. The whipped cream or icing we would use sometimes leaked out the sides and we kept leftovers in a glass and it would ooze out all over everything. Having a coupler solves that with the added bonus of being able to switch out tips without emptying or needing a separate bag for a different tip. Best of all are these handy covers.......no more mess! Keeps things neat and tidy and keeps things fresher longer. Also, when you need to bring some along on a cake delivery for those possible little touch ups there are no worries of having a huge mess. Now I wish I would of found these sooner!
    The Ateco 399 Pastry Tube Covers (August Thomsen) - 4/Pack are very useful, I needed caps for all my frosting tips, I need to buy more, especially at this price!
    I love these to cover my handmade icing in the tubes. Keeps it fresh and it will not ooze out. These are great when making sugar cookie icing as well since it does tend to leak when you are storing for the next time.
    Wonderful covers to use when you don't quite finish your buttercream frosting! Helps to keep the product fresh without spending a whole bunch of money!
