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.

    Ateco is a great brand for decorating tips! We use this to top our cupcakes and we love the result. We would definitely recommend these to anyone in need of decorating tips!
    I use this open star piping tip all the time for icing cupcakes and also for doing piped Roses on cakes. It works awesome and I highly recommend it.
    I used these for my Girl Scout Troop. We were earning a baking patch. These worked great, and the girls really enjoyed the activity. They were able to bake and decorate their own cupcakes.
    I love this piping tip. Anytime I am making regular cupcakes, cake, or pie, I use this tip. It leaves a beautiful swirl or star.
    A really good value. These small tips can really add up in price, especially when buying them individually. This was a third of the price of my local shop and substantially heavier.
    The Ateco open star tip is amazing for decorating our cupcakes and makes it quick and easy to decorate our sweets. Great quality tip and holds up well.
    Great star piping tip they are really good price and very sturdy heavy stainless steel not the easiest to clean but still a great product
    i tried some of the ateco tips as im new at this trade and did not want to spend to much.they are good quality and eay to assemble .
    The perfect tip for frosting cupcakes and making beautiful rosettes. I have about 10 of these and they are my favorite tip to use. A must!
    Love these tips they are very durable and easy to clean highly recommend I only hand wash so never have tried using them in the dishwasher tho
    These tips are easy to use and easy to clean. Sometimes the prongs will get bent but are easy to straighten. I have not had any break yet.
    I am so glad I came across these Ateco 824 3/8" Open Star #15 Piping Tip (August Thomsen). It makes my job so much easier...my products have a finished professional look after I use this to make borders, swirls etc...I will purchase more of these.
    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 824 3/8" Open Star #15 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 is really nice for a medium but sharp frosting swirl.
    I really like this Ateco open star tip. the frosting comes out really neat and well shaped. Its the perfect tip for piping large stars or frosting cupckes
    I use this tip for so many different techniques. My favorite is piping roses on cupcakes or on cakes. It's also great for a simple swirled buttercream on cupcakes.
    I use this tip to make nice swirly topped cupcakes with ease! the large design is great for easy removal from the icing bags as well
    These are a larger pastry tip. Excellent quality. I teach a cupcake decorating class so these are perfect. They are very well made, and again you cant beat the price
    Overall Iam happy with this decorating tip. I typically buy mine from a speciality store but I couldn’t beat the price and the quality is exceptional!
    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.
    This Pastry Tube gives a nice shape for your cream. I used it to make creamy puff cake. This 3/8'' open star shape gives my pastry a perfect look.
