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 closed star icing tip can is utilized for various designs. In particular, the close star tip is great for creating the beautiful rose design on cupcakes and cakes. This tip is one of the most popular in cake design and decorating

    I use this tip for Standard size cupcakes normally. However it works well on tortes and cakes on the top piped in a circular motion. They work great and fit with a medium sized coupler.

    from Aslan Khan LLC Posted on

    I collect these pastry tubes in all shapes and sizes. The price here can't be beat, and they make decorating cupcakes easy and fun. Pair them with the disposable pastry bags, put them in a plastic box (all from Webstaurant Store) and with very little effort you have a lovely presentation that people won't believe you made at home.

    We can use the #8 tube for our standard size cupcakes, but can also be used for details on cakes as well and easily so.

    from Sweet Pea's Cupcakery Cafe Posted on

    This large opening one creates very pretty frosting designs. It's Ateco so it's quality and value. This one uses the large coupler. These are wonderful to add to any collection.

    from home Posted on

    I like this overall, but nothing quite beats the Wilton 1M. This is a good addition to my collection though and a great value overall.

    Ateco 848 5/8" Closed Star #8 Pastry Tube (August Thomsen) this is the second largest star and makes a thin arm star pattern in icing and dough

    from PowerQuee Media Posted on

    Definitely, an essential in decorating baked goods. Bigger than the 3/8-inch star tip and makes a bold look. Makes decorating faster and easier for me because of the bigger tip hole.

    Used this to make Rose meringues last weekend and they came out wonderful! This pastry tip is very large so it was perfect for the meringues.

    Great tip for large area coverage that can work with very thick icings. Good metal construction, solid and clean when piping. Get a coupler to make your life easier when changing tips!

    from Mike's Mindful Plate Posted on

    These Ateco tips are tried and true. The are not easily bent or smashed. They hold their shape even when thrown into a commercial sink and get beat around. The icing comes out smooth and perfect every time. Great for icing cupcakes or cakes with a rosette design!

    from Sweet Treats Bakery Posted on

    A well constructed piece at a great, affordable price! What more could you want? This # 8 frosting tip really fits the bill. It helps for those large frosting jobs.

    Posted on

    This large size tip is my ultimate favorite because it helps frost cupcakes super fast and easy. It is very easy to wash and maintain.

    Posted on

    This is a great large, closed star tip. I think Ateco may be the only company that makes a closed star tip this big...It is perfect for large frosting swirls.

    Posted on

    Ateco offers a number of pastry tube sizes and shapes, I think I have a majority of them and love using them for the quick and ease of use and they are sturdy and price is very reasonable.

    from work Posted on

    Great for mashed potatoes and whipped cream! We put ours through the industrial dishwasher and it cleans it great. No rust here from this pastry tube.

    from The Meyersville inn Posted on

    This is the second largest closed star tip offered on this site and it creates a wonderfully detailed big pipe for frosting. Great for larger cakes and items.

    from Bakeshop LLC Posted on

    I got this thinking I had all the star tips I could want but this tip is a great size for cream puffs! We use it every week to fill our cream puffs! And sometimes we use it for the outside of our cream puffs too!

    from The Cake's Truffle Posted on

    Cream puff fun happening with this awesome Star tip!

    Another great decorating tool by Ateco. Love the size and build and perfect for decorating large sized cupcakes. Makes my job easy and effortless at the bakery.

    this is a large size tip that is very high quality and a low price, im so glad i stumbled upon webstaurant, their prices are fantastic!

    Posted on

    Having a larger tip helps cut down decorating time when decorating cupcakes in bulk. Made of true Stainless Steel. If you're going to be using it with a Coupler, this tip is compatible with the LARGE Ateco Coupler. I hope to see Webstaurant Store carry more tips!

    My favorite tip for piping our cupcakes. This is a great mix of not too small, and not overbearing with frosting when coming out. We use this tip for most of our cupcakes, and it is a bit hit in how it finishes the cupcakes.

    from Hardcore Sweet Posted on

    High quality pastry tube which holds its shape and is easy to clean. The closed star is especially good for frosting small cupcakes and making borders on cakes.

    Posted on

    I smooshed my last tip so I needed a new large one! I couldn't find them at a reasonable price until I checked on here. It came and is just the size I envisioned. Great for cupcakes or piping mashed potatoes.

    from Katy M. Posted on

    The closed star tips are by far my favorite tips to use for my cupcakes. Just a squeeze creates the perfect tops for them. The closed star tip comes in different sizes, but the reason to use them would be for the pretty swirl design it creates.

    Posted on

    Iced my mini cupcakes with the Ateco 848 closed star tip. Same tip created different swirls on top. If you squeeze less icing it makes a star looking top, more icing creates a rosette swirl top.

    I think this is the tip I use the most in the kitchen, it can be used for cupcakes, cakes and I even take it out when making potato castles. Again, great price too.

    Very affordable Pastry tube made by Ateco. Easy to clean and fits standard pastry bags. Great for a nice swirl on top of a cupcake.

    from Countryside Cakes Posted on

    Lovely for making rose patterns and large enough to cupcakes. I only wish they also carried the 855 tip as I do enjoy that one a bit more

    Posted on

    I love Ateco Tips, I have replaced all of my Wilton to Ateco. Size 848 is perfect for a nice swirl on cupcakes. Make sure you buy the Ateco Coupler to go with this!
