That my favorite piping tip to decorate my cake. Easy to used plus easy to clean. The quality, price and the brand is the best.

Abdamina D. on 12/14/2020

We use the Ateco 823 Open Star Piping Tip for several purposes. Our favorite way to use this piping tip is for piping meringue cookies. The cookies are about 1” with this piping tip.

Chiyon Y. from Sugar Defined on 09/27/2020

I use these piping tips for most of my borders on my cakes. It is a universal tip that can be utilized for most if not all designs from swoops, to floral designs. Highly recommend!

Nice start piping tip. I ordered a bunch of these because they seem to be one of the most popular tips with my Culinary students. We use these a lot in our cake/cookie decorating units. Great product. Great quality.

I am really pleased with this piping tip. It is perfect for decorating cupcakes. I am not very artistic but his tip makes decorating much easier and more enjoyable. These are made from stainless steel so they will not corrode. Great quality at an unbeatable price.

Im really happy with this piping tip. They are stainless steel so no need to worry about them rusting. It was fun twist slowly while making this design with whipping cream

Latoya H. on 11/01/2018

This open star piping kit is great for its price. And it’s cheap enough to buy multiples when they do inevitably rust. There are a very good quality

Jodi D. from Craft It on 09/17/2018

I use these Ateco 823 5/16" Open Star #14 Piping Tip (August Thomsen) to make beautiful borders and decorations on my baked products. Very good quality tip and great price too...I will purchase these again...

Kiera T. on 05/25/2018

I own many piping tips from Ateco and all of them work well with the bags, couplers, and cleaning brush as long as you use the correct sized items in relation to the tip on your bag. This company has a huge selection of piping tips and the Ateco 823 5/16" Open Star #14 Piping Tip is one in a line of different sized open star tips. These range from small to large open star designs that can be used together for a varied effect or chosen for the size of your dessert/cake detail. This one in particular is smaller and great for small stars.

Leora G. on 05/22/2018

I love this Ateco open star tip! It makes a beautiful rosette, and is the perfect size for piping on cupcakes. Looks like it will last

Yoel R. from Century Centimentals on 04/27/2018

This open star tube is another option for decorating mini cupcakes or other similar smaller baked goods. It’s small, but for those particular jobs it works perfectly well.

L O. from Fast Casual Cafe on 01/22/2018

I love using this tip for cupcakes. Great swirl for frosting the tops of cupcakes. Easy to clean and they are top rack dishwasher safe

Avalon G. on 01/09/2018

Open star #3 pastry tube is one of the smaller pastry tubes. It creates a clean and sharp line when piping with it . I do use it a lot for filling macarons or decorating cupcakes and it's need really holding up good. It is a very high quality piping tube.

Lyudmila T. on 12/19/2017

This pastry tube is made by Ateco and has a start shaped 5/16" wide tip. This open star shaped pastry tube is one our team uses often. It works great for decorating cakes, cupcakes, and other desserts. We carry many shapes and widths of pasty tubes in our inventory. This gives our pastry chef many different options when deciding on how to decorate their designs. We would suggest hand washing this pastry tube.

Brandon G. from Dig & Serve on 12/07/2017

A much needed size for layering up a cake starting with the smallest #1 to this #3. There are so many different designs you can achieve with all of the sizes available here.

Hai N. on 12/06/2017

These Ateco 823 5/16" open start #3 pastry tubes create stunning stars that make any baked good, whether it be a cake, cookie, or any other kind of pastry. I think you'll be incredibly happy to use this.

Tomas S. on 11/14/2017

The Ateco pastry tube is excellent. It works well with my coupler and is easy to use. I purchased for decorating cupcakes and I have had no issues with it at all.
