    Ateco is the leading name in tips. This one is no different. I have purchased all of the Ateco tips. Best quality at the best value. You will not go wrong or regret buying Ateco tips.

    I love using this piping tip for piping my macarons. The opening is not to wide which makes the air bubbles pop while piping. Very nice and sturdy will definitely purchase a few more of them

    I love this tip. I primarily use it to pipe macaroon batter, for which it's a perfect size. They're so cheap here that I just bought five of them, which turned out to be good when my boyfriend accidentally ground one up in the garbage disposal. They fit perfect in a Wilton reusable piping bag, or on the Wilton classic coupler size if you want to be able to switch out tips on the same frosting bag.

    This tip is the perfect size for piping macarons!

    These are great if you are not planning to use a coupler. They are much bigger that I was thinking. If you are looking for large tips, then this is great

    LOVE this product.... is wonderful to use to make flowers... or small balloons for cakes or cupcakes... makes just the perfect size... but be sure to buy a few if you are like me you use more then one color per flower.. and instead of switching them to each color bag.. way easier to just drop them down and use them per color

    These Ateco 803 pastry tube is great for for filling cream puffs, cupcakes, croissants, doughnuts,'s also perfect for piping. A little too big for intricate detail work but I strongly recommend this item.

    I like these plain round Ateco icing tips. This is a good size for mini cupcakes. Webstaurant offers a good selection and price for Ateco tips.

    The last number of each tip refers to the relative size of the tip opening, the higher the number, the larger the opening , good price

    This it a plain tip for your pastry bag as it's it stiff at the end to help direct the direction of where you'd like to go with it.

    Love Ateco piping tips. The price is great. They don't rust at all and are very sturdy some other bend very easy and these don't.

    from ashleys cakes Posted on

    Used this tip to create the classic elegant black pearl border you see in this picture.

    We like to use the #3 pastry tube for things like cream puffs so the batter doesn't run out to quickly. This is a High quality piping tip.

    from Sweet Pea's Cupcakery Cafe Posted on

    This tube/tip is great for decorating and making swirls. The plain/round ones are so versatile and a necessity for any collection of supplies. This one uses the medium size coupler.

    from home Posted on

    These tips are of good quality- HOWEVER... I did not realize how huge they are until after I received them and I ordered a couple each of every size. These WILL NOT fit standard size couplers. Will have to reorder some regular sized tips

    Ateco 803 5/16" Plain #3 Pastry Tube (August Thomsen) I use these little pastry tubes to create lines in our pastries and icing well not me but my sister lol

    from PowerQuee Media Posted on

    This is a nice medium size plain round tip. I personally think it is a good size for using with mini cupcakes, but would also work well for adding some decorations or border to a cake.

    I love using this tip for mini cupcakes. Great solid swirl for frosting the tops of cupcakes. Easy to clean and they are top rack dishwasher safe

    Great tip for creating swirls and other thick ropy parts on cakes. 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

    Nice pastry tip. Note that it is an 803 even though it is listed as a #3 (large tip opening, not small tip). Have held up well in the dishwasher.

    Love how durable these pastry tubes are. I use them for piping icing and also for cutting fondant circles (both sides create a clean cut!

    from All in the Details Posted on

    Perfect size for a buttercream pearl beaded boarder around cakes!

    I use this tip to frost cakes, cupcakes and cookies. Works great and my pastries look super cute. Ateco products are amazing and this is just another great item.

    Posted on

    We use this size for our frostings when decorating custom cakes. Cleans up easy, just soak, and some soap. We've had them thrown in the sink with tons of dishes, and never have they dented.

    from Ivy Bakery Posted on

    We have been adding to our tip collection and we love this tip. It is a good quality and the size works well for our needs. Great for our needs.

    from Bakeshop LLC Posted on

    These things will last you forever, as long as you don't send them to your dishwasher. Great quality, but easy to lose. At only a dollar a pop, maybe you should just buy a back up!

    from Blushing Berry Posted on

    This plain pastry tube is great for filling cream puffs as well as piping pearl borders on cakes and clean swirls on cupcakes. Ateco makes great pastry tubes and this is no exception. I like that they don't rust as easily as other brand pastry tubes, and the shape of these tubes fit over couplers perfectly.

    Works great - simple of course. This size is too large for small text on cakes however - could be good size for larger text on a full sheet cake

    from Mountain Oven, LLC Posted on

    This is a very economical tip and will also fit on other brands pastry bags as well. You can just stick them through the end of the pastry bag without needing the connectors

    from Gluten Free Kids Posted on

    I use this primarily to ice my cupcakes, and it does the trick. It's a standard round tip, so design options are there, but limited. If that's what you need, get it

    from Just Velvet Posted on

    buying this for the second time, to give one to my mother and I'll probably be buying ANOTHER for my mother-in-law. because the price is perfect! I've seen them much higher at other places. I use these to make polka dots with frosting (maybe not their intended use, but it does the job)

    Posted on

    These round piping tips or tubes as Ateco likes to call them are great to pipe buttercream on cupcakes. You'll need a large coupler for these.

    Posted on

    ateco are the best tips out there and this site is the best in the pricing of these tips we got hundreds of these and they last a long time if you dont crush them in the sink..

    from jeanne's bakeshop Posted on

    Great to use when filling macarons or any other sandwich cookie I would say. Great value for the price and the fact that these sizes are not available at places like craft shops.

    Posted on

    Best price online for these Ateco pipping tips. We've paid more per tip at other stores, but not here. Very strong metal construction (as in it's really hard to bend these).

    Posted on

    Very affordable Pastry tube made by Ateco. Easy to clean and fits standard pastry bags. Great for detail designs and drawing on cakes and cupcakes.

    from Countryside Cakes Posted on

    This pastry tube is a nice size for decorative work on cakes, making dots to hold decorations, and making small cake borders. It's a little too small to frost a cupcake.

    Posted on

    I love this tip for big icing swirls with no pattern. It works well with icing that has "chunks" in it, like cookies and cream.

    Posted on

    This is a great pastry tube! It is a good size for piping filling into small pastries. These tubes are multi-purposeful and very tough, I highly recommend them.

    Filling a Small Tartlet With Almond Filling

    A good size for making characters, fruit, or larger beading on borders. I often use this one for filling cupcakes and pastry shells. The smooth edge doesn't snag on the cake.
