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 pastry tube is amazing. It makes life so much easier when decorating your most fabulous cakes! It releases icing smoothly into its beautiful textured decal.
    My favorite tip to use. Great price, and pretty fool price to use- and great for teaching classes with, would recommend to beginners for sure!
    Ateco tips are solid and keep their shape. With the smaller sizes, #4 and lower numbers, that's important. Sometimes when using a stiffer frosting, other tips will lose their shape. This Ateco one does not. And we use our pastry tips daily! The #4 tip is great for piping rosettes on smaller cakes and for smaller cupcakes.
    The Ateco 844 closed star pastry tube was excactly what we were looking for to do our piping. Always great products at amazing price on here.
    This Ateco 844 3/8" Closed Star #4 Pastry Tube (August Thomsen) is perfect to decorate your cakes, cupcakes, pies, desserts...It's also great to fill your cupcakes and doughnuts....I highly recommend this pastry tube.
    I loved the control these tips gave for decorating cupcakes . They worked wonderfully. Only draw back was I did not have a coupler set large enough to use. The disposal decorating bag I used worked well without.
    Ateco is by far the best brand for baking supplies. For such a low price, you get an amazing quality product! This is perfect for cupcakes.
