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 of good quality- HOWEVER... I did not realize how huge they are until after I received them and I ordered a couple each of every size. These WILL NOT fit standard size couplers. Will have to reorder some regular sized tips.
    We use this small, smooth tip to write on cupcakes. It works very well and has stood the test of time. We would recommend it.

    A great quality product from Ateco. A small circle tip. Great for dotting, lines or writing. As with other Ateco tips the edges are nice and smooth leading to smooth straight lines.
    This is a plain pastry tip, and easy to use with or without a coupler. I use this tip for small details, or for lettering. The Ateco brand tips are very good-they are made of stainless steel, hold up very well to normal use and abuse, and clean up easily in the dishwasher without rusting.
    Ateco 801 3/16" Plain #1 Pastry Tube (August Thomsen) is a GREAT product that gives you very precise detailing and making decorating a blast. I would recommend.
    I have so many of these Ateco and I haven't been able to use them all but once you need a specific size you'll be glad that you have them.
    Product holds up with multiple uses. They are also longer which makes them easier to handle and get into your bags. Works great for my needs.
    I like using this pastry tip for writing bigger bolder letter or sometimes for piping designs into cakes. I really like it. It's very strong. Doesn't bend. Very easy to clean up and maintain.

    Ateco is my favorite brand for most of our bakery needs- and Ateco tips are always great to use, Always great quality. This tip is good for small details, and designs on cakes, and cupcakes.
    Very good quality pastry tub. I have purchased different sizes to try it out and I like this item to make dots and lines. It's a little too big for writing.
    I used this size for making lines on my cake pop and my chocolate cover pretzel and the perfect size. I also used to for piping lines on cookies it works great for everything I have used it for.
    Piping smaller borders is a breeze with this tip. Or even for writting on a bigger cake. The stainless steel tips are always top quality and easy to maintain, take care of them and they will last you.
    This one is good for the more delicate decorations and piping. Dots, beadwork, and more can easily be created with this. It uses the medium size coupler so great when using many tubes for multi decorating.
    Ateco 801 5/32" Plain #1 Pastry Tube (August Thomsen) I'm not an artist my sister is and she used them to create nice lines in her icing and pastry designs
    This is a nice quality pastry tube. It is kind of an in-between size that is a little too thick too write with and a little too thin for most borders, but still one I like to have for doing dots and things on cake or cupcakes.
    Great tip for larger but not huge design work. Good metal construction, solid and clean when piping. Get a coupler to make your life easier when changing tips!
    It's amazing how many designs you can accomplish with this Ateco pastry tube. We love making pearl borders around our birthday and wedding cakes. Love the fact that these are almost non-bendable.
    Good tip for a great price. I put these in the dishwasher and have never had any issue. They hold up well and hold their shape, no rust even when I mistreat them.
