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.

    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!
    Nice cover! a little smaller than I though it would be! but still a great product! easy to use and perfect for covering tips in between use. Great price!
    These pastry tube covers do a good job of covering up the pastry tubes so they don't dry out. They make it easy when you have several colors you are working with.
    That atego 399 pastry tube covers are nice item to have for your small pastry bags good value and quality keeps your icing from drying out too soon
    These patry tube covers are solidly made, and pretty much just one of those little accessories which make life easier for a baker. Not strictly necessary or world changing but will prevent those annoying moments when something requires your attention mid piping session and you come back to some dried out icing in the bag tip. For a buck are you gonna argue. Better to have and not need then to need and not have.
    Really nice product, well made and great price. Great for left over icing. Heavy duty. A must have for bakers and pastry chefs ! !
    These are perfect pastry tip covers. The snap on really well and don't fall off. They work perfectly for the small tips. Would definitely recomend.
    I purchased several of these. I thought they would be great for keeping the icing fresh while it's still in the bag, but I cannot get tgem to stay in the tips. Perhaps some threads inside them would help.
    they're cheap, they seem well made. but be aware that these tips only fit onto the smallest coupler that ateco makes which just so happens to be the coupler with the least amount of matching tips, so unfortunately there isn't much use that most people will get out of them, but when they do fit, its snug and sturdy
    These are great for when I fill piping bags early or need to transport them. No worrying about my icing taking on odors, or leaking.
    Having these tube covers make things a lot easier. I tend to make a lot more frosting than I actually need, so I just slip this cover on the bag and voila! I can store it in the fridge until next time
