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.

    This tip is sturdy and has a good, crisp star shape for cupcakes. I also put it through the dishwasher and there was no warping.
    I loved using this tip! It pipes out frosting evenly and doesn’t break out of the bag! Also it is super easy to clean when your done using it.
    Great tip to have I use it a lot for making cupcake tops. It’s so easy to wash because it is made out of stainless
    Standard piping tip - very sturdy, pricing is good and tips are as expected. Have used for frosting cupcakes, brownies, cakes, etc. for personal and selling goods at local farmers market. Recommend purchasing!
    This tip is amazing for cupcakes but PERFECT for making churros. Other tips like the closed star tips work, but not nearly as well. This makes it great to experement with churro shapes like bowl/donut shapes
    The quality on the Ateco tips is great. The points on the top of the star are sturdy so they don't bend easily. They are easy to clean!
    Recently bought this product. Nozzle proved to be very good and they are very high quality. Delivery pleased was faster than I could imagine and the goods are well packaged.
    Very fast delivery, I am satisfied. I bought it to my wife, she loves to decorate cake and make all sorts of tasty things. undoubtedly the booth to take again
    Perfect thing for making your pastry and cakes look and taste wonderful. Easily adjustable and quite handy it’s a must in every kitchen. Thanks for that!
    good ateco 826 open star piping tip, ateco offers quality, durabilty . Easy to store, clean and use. Would recomend for small cakes decorations , delicates creams.
    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 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.
    This tip works just fine for decorating and frosting the tops of cupcakes. If you are looking to do a rose swirl though I would recommend a closed star tip for a better shape.
    The cupcake swirl is classic for a reason. Everyone loves it and it gives them the anticipation of being about to indulge in the perfect cupcake. I've owned lots of large Ateco piping tips for cake and cupcake decorating for years and the quality is always high. The Ateco 826 tip along with 827-829 in my opinion belong in every baker's kit. Sometimes, I want a deeper grooved look to my frosting but not as much as the closed star 846 tip would give. Since I have multiples of this tip, I bent the prongs in slightly on one of them and this made it even more versatile. Love this piping tip and will be frosting cupcakes with it for a long time to come.
    This is a great large tip for piping stars and anything decorative. Works great with disposable piping bags and has held up well. Love it
    Loved finding Ateco tips on the Webstaurant site! These work great and are a great price as well. We have stocked up and would purchase again if needed.
    This tip is way bigger than expected, but works very well it does need a bigger piping bag though at least and 18" bag. very sturdy
    In my experience the Ateco tips are reliable and sturdy. They are cheaper on this site vs. buying them in the craft stores. This tip is versatile and makes beautiful shapes and swirls.
    Versatile and beautiful! Great for making roses on cakes and cupcakes. This is a must have tip in every bakers kitchen. The ateco tip is excellent quality.
    i love this ateco piping tip. the open star creates a beautiful swirl thats perfect for a cupcake or decorating a cake. the quality is great too
