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.

    As a pastry chef, I will not sacrifice on quality when it comes to anything especially items that I use multiple times a day everyday. Thankfully this made open star tube lives up to that standard.

    I use to purchase cupcakes from the store until I tried the Ateco tubes. They are so easy to use and clean. I will never go back to buying cupcakes again. Thanks Webstaurant Store!

    Great tube and excellent price.

    This ateco 824 is a smaller open star tip. It great for boarders on cakes or for smaller or mini cupcakes. The open star is a very useful tip.

    Posted on

    Good size tip for the smaller cupcakes.

    I love this tip for a smaller rosette pattern on my smash cakes. It always looks so. Much better than when I use a larger tip.

    from Courtney's Cakes and Sweet Treats Posted on

    Rosette smash cake!

    I bought this tube tip as a decorator for jumbo sized cupcakes. I added just a few open stars and the design / icing looks awesome, with many compliments.

    Open star #4 tip

    Ateco 824 3/8" Open Star #4 Pastry Tube (August Thomsen) is now one of the many Ateco brand products I've come to love. They work beautifully and hold up well through dishwasher.

    from Mocha Choca Latte Posted on

    The closed stars are my favorite by far, and this one is just lovely.

    These 3/8" Open Star #4 pastry tubes are very nice and professional quality. We've only had them for a few weeks but so far they're holding up great. We are using them with the 3-piece medium plastic coupler.

    from KRN Enterprise, LLC Posted on

    Another awesome star tip from Ateco. You can not go wrong with Ateco quality. A basic star tip but possibilities are anything but basic. You can do borders, writing or designs with this tip.

    Posted on

    Very nice and sturdy open star tip. The metal it's made out of is very strong and does not bend easily. It makes a nice and cute design.

    The best pastry tip

    The Ateco 824 3/8" Open Star #4 Pastry Tube (August Thomsen) is one of my favorites. It works perfect with my coupler. This is definitely a great value. I would purchase again and recommend.

    This is a great pastry tube. Works really well for decorating cupcakes. Highly recommend!

    We use this tip to do our rosettes on our cakes. These are also what we call our "fool proof" tips and teach classes with these tips as they are great for beginners.

    from Hardcore Sweet Posted on

    I absolutely love this product! This is a open star pastry tube! This tube works great and makes a beautiful icing design. This is very easy to use.

    Very nice quality cake decorating supplies at a very modest price point. When they accidentally get thrown away, my heart breaks a little, but not my pocketbook.
