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.

    A well made tip by Ateco. A nice BIG tip perfect for quickly icing cupcakes or even making designs on cakes. Very nice quality and can't beat the price.
    These tips are the best for frosting cupcakes! They leave a beautiful swirl with minimal effort. Can be used for rosette cakes, also! 10/10 would recommended!
    I enjoy using ateco piping tips because they are great quality. The large size helps me save time. It’s my favorite tip for cupcake tops
    This Ateco 846 piping tip is a great addition to your collection. This size is a great way to ice cupcakes in a pretty swirl pattern.
    Love love love this piping tip! So many beautiful designs you can create using this tip! I love that you can throw these in the dishwasher as well!
    Love this piping tip. It makes the cakes and cupcakes look very professional and nice. They are one of my favorite to use on my desserts.
    This star piping tip is perfect for piping our cakes and cupcakes! The quality is great for the price and it has lasted a long time.
    The Atecto 846 #25 closed star piping tip is a nice large tip. Makes great swirl designs on cupcakes or makes a very nice decorative border on cakes.
    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 personally prefer the ateco tips to other brands. I like this tip for frosting a nice rose swirl on top of cupcakes and other designs.
    Whether it's elegant figure-8 style frosting or a more typical swirl, this large closed star tip is great for all your mini and regular cupcake decorating needs. Ateco brand piping tips are always seamless and sturdy, so there's little need to mention that. But especially at the low prices available from WebstaurantStore, there's no reason not to add this to your piping tip arsenal.
    I love these large tips for piping my cupcakes as well as Cake borders. They look great and will be purchasing more soon. I recommend them.
    If you ice cupcakes, buy several of these! It is the perfect size—large enough to look like a bakery icing tip but you can still use it in mini-cupcakes, too.
    we have been using the ateco brand piping tips for many yearswith excellent results, they are a reliable and are not expensive. this tip makes a star pattern
    Nice decorating tip for buttercream rosettes. This Ateco 846 #25 Closed Star Piping Tip (August Thomsen) is made of very good material, it's very inexpensive, and does an amazing job...I love it.
    I own many piping tips from Ateco and all of them work well with the bags, couplers, and cleaning brush as long as you use the correct sized items in relation to the tip on your bag. This company has a huge selection of piping tips and the Ateco 846 #25 Closed Star Piping Tip is different from the open star because of its softer, less defined look.
    This closed star tip made by Ateco is a great addition to my tips collection, it makes a smooth rosette, and im really happy with it.
    Great product for decorating cakes and cupcakes. The price is unbeatable and I will continue to buy these again and again. Thanks ateco for a great product
    I’d say that this is the standard tube I use. It’s a good medium size which makes it great for a large number of projects. It’s much better than the plastic options I have used in the past, and given that I use this tube so often. It is very important that they last and continue to last for a very long time.
    Ateco Tips are my all time favorite. Very durable and the larger star tips are our favorite for the bakery as what we call the “bakery swirl”
