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.

    Works great. It won’t rust. The price is great. I will continue to use ateco products in the near future because they have great quality
    LOVE, this is one of my favorite piping tips. Ever since I first used it in pastry school. It is so versatile and can be used on cakes or cupcakes.
    These tips are a great investment. They do not have a seam down them so the piping is very smooth, but beware. The steel tips are VERY sharp and can easily rip the bags if you aren't careful.
    Great tip! I love the large size, it makes cupcakes look so professional. It is also very easy to clean when finished with your project.
    I'm a big fan of Ateco piping tips in general and the 845 closed star tip is no different. It's sturdy so you don't have to worry about the prongs bending easily even if you accidentally drop it or it ends up under something big in the sink. I generally gravitate toward the larger piping tips since I primarily use them for topping cupcakes, but I like having the 845 tip in my toolkit for drop stars and smaller swirls when I don't want as much frosting on certain cupcakes. Overall a good, reliable product.
    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.
    i decided to try to do some cake and cup cake decorating and went with the ateco brand as they donot cost much.they worked very well and are well made
    I totally love the tip and couldn’t wait to put it to use with my cupcake decorating skills, no coupler is needed either! less work for me

    This pastry tube is my go to item when I need to quickly frost items such as decorated cookies. This tip is a perfect size for a nice look and for speedy frosting.
    This pastry tube has a 7/16" wide tip and features the closed star shape. Pastry chefs love having multiple shapes and widths of tubes to decorate their desserts. This pastry tube is great for decorating cakes, cupcakes, and other desserts. This pastry tube is made by Ateco, a quality manufacturer of pastry bags and tools. We do suggest hand washing these tools.
    I just used these last week to make a large border around a funnel cake. Came out nicely and made quick work of the decorating.
    I love this for sweet and simple rose like cupcakes. It folds Ivey around the cupcakes and make a beautiful rose look, my most popular look!
