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.

    I really love to work with french star tips. They are creating such an elegant design! And I specially like this one. It allows me to create really fine work. Great product!
    French star #0 pastry tube is the smallest pastry tube It creates a cute little design that is very detailed and looks perfect on small bakery items. I use it mostly for filling macarons, and it looks very beautiful The quality of the piping tube is very nice too To clean it i use the pastry tube cleaner brush which makes it very easy.
    This Ateco pastry tube has a 5/32" wide tip and features the French star shape. Having multiple shapes and widths of pastry tubes will give your pastry chefs the ability to be creative. These pastry tubes are a very good quality product and easy to clean because of their stainless steel design.

    I absolutely love this product! This French star #0 pastry tube works great! This tube is durable and great quality! Makes a beautiful textured fine ribbon!
    I use this medium sized, french star tip #0, for writing on cakes when I want a little more depth than using a plain round tip. It works out pretty well
    Very good quality pastry tub. Perfect to make borders and little rosettes. Dishwasher safe. I will definitely buy a couple more of these to use in my business.
    Perfect tip to Add to my collection, and to use on any small pipping, Quality and durability are excellent and let's not mention the price best price I found so far
    The stainless steel tips are always top quality and easy to maintain, take care of them and they will last you. The French star opens up your decorating choices. Use this one for smaller details.
    This one has a small opening. It's great for pretty decorations when a smaller tube/tip is needed. This one uses the medium coupler. That makes it easy when using several different tubes/tips of various sizes.
    This review is for French star number 0 pastry tip from webstaurant.com I absolutely love these tips that's why I bought approximately 20 different shapes
    Ateco 860 5/32" French Star #0 Pastry Tube (August Thomsen) this is the first time I herd of a french star and this makes patterns in pastry and icing
    Nice quality tip, I personally just don't like the fineness of the grooves. Good metal construction, solid and clean when piping. Get a coupler to make your life easier when changing tips!
    This # 0 french star frosting tip works really well for smaller projects and frosting mini cupcakes. At this price, you can pick up a few!
