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.

    This 4 plain piping tip works very well for piping small details on all kinds of confections. It works very well for making line work on sugar cookies.
    The Ateco number 4 plain piping tip works really well for writing on cookies. and cakes. The tip itself is easy to use and a staple to any cake decorator to have on hand.
    This is a very well made tip and perfect for all sorts of decorating jobs. It's usually my second choice behind a #3 tip for writing and outlining. It doesn't seem to rust or discolor like some brands I've used either.
    A really nice tip for piping work or for writing on a cake. They also hold up well when washed in the dishwasher. No rusting or discoloration
    I love my tips. Great for all of my decorating needs. These piping tubes are great for all kinds of pastry work. I use them for work, so I'm glad that I found it online.
    This tip is great for writing. The quality of steel is also good. The bottom of the tip is wide so be prepared to have a proper piping bag
    This is a great plain piping tip from Ateco. It will do all of the fine detail and edging work on your sugar cookies. Great quality and price.
    The small tip allows for more intricate piping. We use these tips daily in the bakery. They are well made and do not tarnish like I have seen other ‘cheaper’ brands do.
    I am so happy to have this. It is great for decorating and filling and just making straight lines. This is a great product super happy
    I am really enjoying these Atecco tips. This one is a little bigger than the writing tips but the writing still turns out nice. I also use for filling small pastries. Great deal I will order again.
    The stock round tips are the best quality out there. It is quality made with a good clean sharp edge with no flow issues. Great price!
    Slightly larger than a writting tube, but this can still be used as such if I needed it to. Proportionately appropriate to the size of larger cakes.
