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.

    I really love this Ateco 826 1/2" Open Star #17 Piping Tip (August Thomsen). It's a perfect tip to create swirls and borders on my cakes and cupcakes. I will definitely purchase more of these in the future. Great quality and price.
    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 826 1/2" Open Star #17 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. Produces gorgeous large roses for a cake.
    I use this piping top # 17 to quickly decorate my cupcakes. It’s easy to use & makes a very nice decoration that looks so nice
    This tip is the universal tip. My three kids have this tip mastered. If my six year old can make cupcakes look professional then this tip is a clear winner. I have multiples!
    After testing this pastry tube, I like the designs I am able to create with this particular tube. It works as a different option but slightly similar to a closed star tip.
    Great and easy to use. This is easy to clean and have never had a problem with it. Dishwasher safe. Fits in most pastry bags.
    This is one of my favorite tips to use when piping my soap frostings. It produces a ruffled effect that makes my cupcakes look like ice cream.
    With the right tool. You can make any of idea into beautiful creations. Just as you can with this open star tip. With this tip. It made my cupcake beautiful and so easy to do as well. As seen in the pictures. Ateco is a brand with quality. Webstaurant gives prices you do not have to think twice. It’s a win-win.
    When using 1/2" #6 open star pastry tube it's really big so you get a big star shape on your cupcake. Do you know what that mean, less work for you.
    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!
    The open star is a very classic pastry tube design and one our pastry team uses often. This pastry tube has a 1/2" wide tip and is great for decorating various types of desserts and pastries. We do suggest hand washing this. It is made of durable stainless steel and is very easy to clean.
    Ive used a lot of tips in the past, but this one is by far the best and sturdiest. It doesnt move once its filled and fits my piping bag perfectly.
    Perfect for unicorn hair. I love to give my cakes different texture hair for more dimension and this is one of my go tos! The perfect size.
    This is a great, high-quality pastry tube, it will last a long time, it's easy to use, and it's very reasonably priced. We are very glad we ordered.
    This open star tip is great. Good quality, so the tips don't bend easily. I can throw it in the dishwasher and it doesn't get warped. I use it for cupcakes or cake boarders.
    These pastry tubes work great and the thicker opening make decorating much easier!! Highly recommend if you are considering, we will be buying more in the near future
    Ateco is my favorite brand for pastry tubes/tips. This 826 open star tube is my go to for cupcakes. It makes the perfect bakery style swirl that makes your cupcakes look professional.
    Ateco 826 1/2" Open Star #6 Pastry Tube (August Thomsen) is a lifesaver in the kitchen, making decorating a "piece of cake". I would highly recommend.
    This does the job perfectly and is very cheap! It is very sturdy and seems like it will hold up well. I wish it was a little smaller.
