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 is the perfect star tip! It creates the best and most defined rosettes. I have ordered several Ateco tips and they last forever and do not rust or bend.
    You really can’t beat the price! I purchased multiples so I didn’t have to wash every time to re-use. Makes a perfect swirl. A great dupe for a Wilton 2D closed state tip.
    I love this tip. It makes rosettes like the popular Wilton 2D tip. I have been purchasing a lot of Ateco tips from here and love all of them so far.
    As another reviewer said, this is very very similar to the Wilton 2D piping tip and like the 2D it makes very pretty rosettes on top of cupcakes. It's also great for piping a hydrangea flower-type design on cupcakes. For that style it's best to use a two-tone frosting in colors that occur naturally in hydrangea flowers. It's pretty easy to pipe basically 2 layers of drop stars using this tip are all it takes. These are also great to use with mini cupcakes. Simply hold the piping tip slightly above a mini cupcake and pipe straight down to form a small pretty ruffle. This is a good quality, versatile piping tip. I recommend having at least 1 or 2 of these on hand if you like to make cupcakes or make buttercream rosette cakes.
    I use these tips in my baking classes so buying multiples is what I did. I love that if I buy so many of them the price is even lower.
    I love Ateco tips. I'm not sure if they are dishwasher safe, but I still run them in there (commercial dish washer) and they keep in good shape. No rust yet. This is the same as Wilton 2D - I use this tip for piping roses (flat roses) not sure what they're actually called. Highly recommend Ateco Tips1
