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.

    The Open Star Piping TIp works great with the frosting that we use for cupcakes. It does get messy if we use it for too long with thicker icing.
    I love to cook desserts, and even more I like to decorate them. My favorite method is to make small flowers along the contour of a dessert using this spout, it turns out very beautifully.
    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.
    Love this icing tip! This is a jumbo sized tip that is perfect for the classic cupcake swirl look. Be careful cleaning it because it is sharp!
    Whether it's a simple low swirl, drop stars, or double swirls for a taller cupcake, this is one of the best and most versatile piping tips for frosting cupcakes. I like for my frosting to have a little more definition so I do like to bend the straight tips inward a tiny bit. And of course this is the same high quality as other Ateco piping tips. The open star tips are also a bit easier to clean so that's a plus, too.
    great tip for buttercream. good quality and dishwasher safe. its a classic that should be in every kitchen! you will use it more that you think! (buttercream, meringue, butter!)
    This is the tip that we use the most in our establishment. We use it for cake decorating, for decorating our pancakes and waffles and even to pipe our eclair shells. These tips are the perfect size and are very durable.
    This ateco open star tip is fantastic! it is made of strong metal and is long lasting. Great to use for large swirls or large stars
    Such a great tip! This Ateco 828 5/8" Open Star #19 Piping Tip (August Thomsen) is very good quality, price and does an amazing job. My cakes and cupcakes look very pretty and finished...I will buy again.
    Love this tip for piping cookies or pastry or cupcakes! Large and sharp edges for a professional loom that customers really love. I will be ordering more!
    This rather larger open star tube is ideal for larger cakes. If you decorate a number of different cakes, you will like having this as an option.
    We love this French star tune. Easy to clean and easy to use. Great for using on cakes and cupcakes. Fits in most bags we use.
    This is a nice wide tip, we use it often for cupcakes and cookie sandwiches. We just wish webstuarant would stop wrapping the shipping labels on tips since it's so hard to remove the goo from them!
    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 Ateco 828 has the open star shape design. This is a very classic shape for pastry tubes. This tip measure 5/8" wide. We own this shape in many tip widths. The price of Ateco pastry tubes is very reasonable here on the site. We do suggest having multiple sizes and styles on hand for your pastry team.
    I like to use these on the base of a cake and then work my way up to a smaller tip. Large tip is easier to clean too.
    I love this Ateco tip my cupcakes look so professional and visually appealing. The big size allows for a good amount of frosting distribution on my cakes and cupcakes.
    This product is a great addition to use in icing and decorating cake. Since the size is large enough, I also use this tip for piping Éclair dough.
    The extra large Ateco tubes are my favorite to use when decorating cupcakes. They are exactly what you need to get that bakery style look..
