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 for frosting cupcakes, tops of soap, decorating and piping decorative candle wax on the top of candles and more. The price is great too.
    This is the greatest item we have used thus far! This is the best price have found on any other website. we will continue buying our supplies from here.
    The 849 tip is great for decorating cupcakes or piping around the edges of a cake. I've used this for churros as well but other open star tips work better in my opinion
    Love Ateco tips. They are high quality and better than the competition. These are the only tips I use when decorating cakes. No rusting and washing, and I've had these for quite sometime.
    I must say that this must be the most used tip From my collection it is so basic yet so simple but beautiful I really enjoy owning a lot of different tips for different styles and baked goods
    Good quality piping tip. Makes nice star shaped flowers. The tip is really wide though so be prepared to have extra piping bags that you cut cut to fit this
    One of my favorite everyday tips for cupcakes. I have come to love the Ateco brand for cake supplies more and more with each purchase!
    Makes a perfect star for our cupcakes. We put this thing through a lot and it has stayed in tact and very durable. Also easy to clean which is important
    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.
    We use this tip for frosting cupcakes wit beautiful rosettes. We also use it for making rosette meringues and marshmallows. A great buy! Definitely recommend.
    This closed star tip is enormous! You don't need a coupler for this tip, it will adjust itself once you push down the batter or whatever it is you're piping. That's why it's important to have one bag to use only with these giant sized tips. I bought this specifically for piping churros, to make a recipe from the latest issue of a certain magazine. The dough for these is pretty stiff, so I'm sure this will stand up just fine to the thickest buttercream. Anyway, the churros came out really thick. Honestly, I think this is a great tip if you like a higher soft inside to crunchy outside ratio. I also fail to see any rusting, and I've left this tip out to dry overnight. So yes, I definitely recommend this tip if you're looking for something that will last you a long time.
    My absolute favorite piping tip for frosting all of my cupcakes! It's jumbo size makes it fast and easy to give any cupcake a professional finish.
    we decided to try this brand of icing bag piping tips as they are very cheap.they were easy to use and are very well made tips.
    This is a large closed star trip, I use it for piping on both cupcakes and large cakes. I’ve had it for years now, it does not have a rust problem which is good. Does the job
    I love these tips! I bought five of them. The closed star tips give my cupcakes a professional bakery look. Definitely recommend these to any bakers.
    These larger star tips make a great traditional swirl on cupcakes. If you’re looking for bakery style frosting swirls this is the tip you need!
    Although I love the swirls made with 5his tip, I think it may be just a littl3 too large for my regular use. I do, however, think it is very high quality.
    I used this yesterday for cupcakes. It created a nice swirl on top and my friends all loved the beauty and simplicity of this piping.
    This is the perfect tip to make rosettes on your cupcakes. This Ateco 849 #28 Closed Star Piping Tip (August Thomsen) is the perfect size and the quality is very good. I will buy this again.
    This is my favorite tip to use when icing cupcakes. It also is perfect for a extra large shell border or rosettes. It's the biggest of the closed start tips from Ateco and is good quality.
