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 like this Ateco 840 Closed Star Piping Tip. It is high quality stainless steel; it works great to use for small decorating on cakes or cupcakes. Highly recommend!!
    we tried these ateco brand icing piping bag tips cause of the cheap price.they are very well made and were easy to assemble and use them.
    This #19 closed star pastry tube is pretty versatile for its size. Good for borders, or for nice streamer designs. It’s stainless steel design makes me very confident that I will be able to reach for this many times without issue.
    Closed star #0 pastry tube is a very small and detailed tube. It produces a very small and detailed design with nice sharp edges. I use it mostly for filling macarons since the cream looks really cute peaking out. The pastry tube is made out of high quality material that will last for a very long time.
    The closed start shape pastry tubes is another style pastry tube we own. This pastry tube is made by Ateco, a quality manufacturer of pastry bags and tools. This pastry tube is great for decorating cakes, cupcakes, and other desserts.
    These smaller tips are so good when you don't want to overwhelm your cookies or cupcakes with too much frosting. I need to have them all.
    Ateco 840 5/32" Closed Star #0 Pastry Tube (August Thomsen) is one of my personal favorites, although it takes more time, I love creating precise detail and with this I can.
    None of the various couplers I bought from the Ateco brand fit this tube yet. There is still some residue from the strong sticker the warehouse people stuck all around the pastry tip. Fyi, it doesn't fit the 400, 402, 404 couplers.
    The Ateco 840 5/32" Closed Star #0 Pastry Tube (August Thomsen) definitely met my expectations. The quality is really good as well as the price. Works great for decorating cupcakes. I highly recommend this pastry tube.
    This product is amazing.. it works great to use as a textured writing tip.. or even to make stars.. or even to make those cute little flowers that everyone loves
    I love this Ateco 840 pastry tube is made of very good quality material and easy to clean...I highly recommend adding this tube to your collection
    There's ateco pastry tubes are very durable and the metal is heavy weight, so they don't feel like they will bend or break easily under pressure.
    Add to your decorating supplies with this closed star Tip. Easily add a unique design with a little creativity. This tip is made of high quality stainless steel and as long as you follow simple washing techniques, it will last you a long time.
    This one has a very small opening for those small decoration needs. This is great for decorating cookies and more. It uses a medium coupler.
    Ateco 840 5/32" Closed Star #0 Pastry Tube (August Thomsen) these closed star create a long armed star but this one is the smallest of the set
    Looks smaller in the picture but it should accomplish what I had hoped for. I'm practicing with it now but will be using it on several orders this weekend!
    Great tip for deeply grooved detail work, looks really nice. Good metal construction, solid and clean when piping. Get a coupler to make your life easier when changing tips!
    While I tend to use this tip a little less frequently than some of my others, it still is a great piece for small decorations.
