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.

    That tip is other one the my favorite because helpme to made everything more easy to decorate my cake. The customer like how look my cakes
    love these Ateco Tips, they are very sturdy and very well constructed. I have purchased multiple tips in this size to use in my bakery as I use a lot of different icing colors at a time. Recommend this item for sure.
    Quality wise these tips are great. However I didn't personally care for the top shape itself. Hard to tell online the size. It wasn't what I was hoping for.
    This is by far my favorite tip to use. It makes your treats look so professional without even trying. Definitely would recommend this top for beginners. Can’t go wrong.
    These are great for cake decorating or designing of any cream! We use many different size tips for dispensing cream cheese and wasabi and have no issues with any of the sizes.
    perfect little star piping tip for when decorating cakes or cupcakes. came really quicky and packaged nicely. after washing it dry off nicely to keep it from rusting
    The Ateco size 824 is a wide open star piping tip that will make beautiful decorations on your cakes. I use it to decorate but also to shape up choux dough before I put them in the oven.
    I like to decorate cakes. Thanks to this nozzle, I get the perfect decor. I also get some good meringues that my family eats with pleasure. Thanks to your store.
    its good priced and perhaps will work better for not beginners.Also,have to be sure the bag is correct for this nozzle.I noticed some bags work better then others.
    My culinary class used the piping tips for our Italian Buttercream and the piping tips worked extremely well. They were easily cleaned as well. I would recommend this product.
    The Ateco 824 3/8" open star #15 piping tip is perfect for making stars or flowers on cakes or cupcakes. One of my go to tips; love the design!
    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

    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!
