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.

    These tips are durable for pastries, cake decorating, and for pipping butter. They have easy storage and are able to be put through the dishwasher.

    I bought these tips and use them sometimes, I need to purchase a coupler that would work with them. Do not use small bags of frosting with these tips you go thru it quickly.

    These tips are so big that I cannot use them for any frosting. Maybe these were made for piping cookies instead of frosting but I have not found a use for them yet.

    While I don\'t have a ton of experience with pastries, I was looking for an economical option for my first dessert catered wedding, and chose these plastic tips. The size and options were perfect and they come with a case to keep everything organized. I found they were fairly easy to clean afterward without the use of any special equipment, and removing the buttery residue from them was not a problem for me. Nothing a little hot water and a sponge couldn\\'t handle.

    from Fi Olivia Posted on

    These are good tips but unlike the metal ones these break instead of getting bent. I prefer the metal tips to these plastic ones because they do not have the intricacy that the metal ones do.

    from Steele Mansion Posted on

    The PERFECT set for cupcake decorating or large format decorations. The plastic is thick so while its not quite as good at metal, I haven't had anything break on me yet and it cleans up easily in the dishwasher.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVEE this set. My most used tips are the big Star tips and the plain ones. Prices on Webstaurant store is amazing. I saw the same set for double the price.

    from WhiskedbyMukta Posted on

    These tubes are great! I like that they are plastic in that they will keep their shape, not bend in the dishwasher and come out really clean! Good Job ATECO!

    I have used other piping tips in the past, but no matter what, when you clean them, ended up with rust These plastic alternatives are great and easy to clean, I even put them in the dishwasher sometimes.

    I first thought about this set for use with melted chocolates and such since my metal ones can't go into the microwave if a bag needs to be reheated for a few seconds. I inquired and customer service didn't recommend that type of usage. I purchased a few cheap plastic white ones for that task. I thought since these were plastic then it may work. I now understand though why. It's because these are somewhat in the middle of the plastic and the metal ones. I especially wanted this set for the st honore tube. I had many of the others in this set but not that one. The cost of one of those can be close to the cost of this set and it never hurts to have spares of the others. I'm going to have fun creating even more treats.

    I'm not the best decorator but I prefer the metal ones though these are okay

    These are not easy to clean but they do their job. The pastries look beautiful. With twelve options of designs everything comes out pretty and sharp.

    the was my first time using plastic pastry tips. let me say i am impressed. there is a nice assortment and in a easy storage case

    chocolate frosting

    I wish this came in a box that snapped closed. After you open it, the top only rests on the base, so in our busy and hectic store at this point it has tipped over so many times we have lost a few of the tips and finally had to move them into another container.

    I purchased the Ateco 788 12-piece plastic pastry tube set by August Thomsen. The tips fit nicely into the plastic carrying case for easy access.
