Ateco 909 1 1/4 Flower Nail (August Thomsen)

Item #: 144909

This Ateco 909 pastry nail is ideal for making professional roses to top cakes, cookies, and other desserts! The long stem provides a secure grip as you rotate the nail between your fingers and pipe a flower onto the head of the nail. The flat head is the perfect base for creating beautiful flowers and designs. With a smooth surface to work on, you can easily transfer flowers from the nail to your cake with an icing spatula or knife. Once the flower is removed from the nail, you can even invert the nail to use the flathead to ease the flower to exactly where you want it.

    These little nails are indispensable for making butter roses or pastry flowers. The turning motion makes creating the petals of the rose a breeze, and adds a higher level of presentation to any item you are decorating.

    You can not go wrong with Ateco. Great product. Less than half the price at other places. Buy a few so you always have extras.

    This flower nail is very easy to use - it spins really well and generally serves its purpose! The diameter is rather small, so it can be used for small or medium flowers only.

    The Aetco 1 1/4" flower nail is great for piping small to medium flowers. You can not beat the cheap price in store locally. This same size flower nail in store is more expensive.

    from Grammycakes Desserts Posted on

    Good price, and works well. They pull cleanly from the cake when baked. They clean easily and perform well. We use these for all size cakes.

    Great tool for cake decorators.

    HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend. If anything I need to stock up on more. They are so cheap- and again, we love Ateco brand. These don't bend and are sturdy for the price. We use these a lot with classes and for our buttercream roses, and flowers. I would suggest getting a couple at a time!

    This flower nail is perfect for holding small flowers and it is made of good quality metal. I will order for more and different sizes.

    from Sugary and Savory Posted on

    Flower nails are a simple little tool, but really helpful for making buttercream flowers. The Ateco nail has a great feel that spins well between your fingers and makes piping a beautiful flower a breeze. The buttercream creations are easy to lift of the nail. This is a great price for a handy tool.

    For a first time flower maker this helped so much. The bottom is large enough to get a firm grip and the top is big enough to make large or small flowers

    the size is acceptable to medium flowers but not for large, I really like the material that is made , of course that I'll buy

    This has proven to be a winner. The ridges really helps provide a nice grip even when your hand might be a bit slippery. The stainless material is easy to clean.

    I like the grooved handle on this flower nail because the other one I have doesn't have it and it makes it very slippery at times.

    from The Grand Cupcakery Posted on

    The Ateco 909 1-1/4" Flower Nail performs as expected and is a very sturdy item. What a great value when purchasing from Webstaurant Store! Will be back for more cake decorating supplies.

    Roses here I come!! There are large enough to create lovely oversized roses. I love it and the quality is great just as you'd expect to find on this site.

    I cannot say there was an issue with this nail, just that it is way too small to make a decent size flower with this. A small on, definitely!

    from Just Velvet Posted on

    Important basic tool in any decorators kit for flowers and roses. Good quality construction, feels like it will hold up over time and do a good job.

    from Mike's Mindful Plate Posted on

    Perfect little flower nail. It's not often that I bake cakes but when I do, I usually put little buttercream flours on it. This flower nail is the perfect little size and quite heavy duty. Also has lasted in the dishwasher.

    Posted on

    This is the first flower nail I have ever bought, and I am pleasantly surprised! Though maybe a little small for my taste, this nail allows me to pipe my royal icing flowers with much more control.

    from Sugar and Spice Bakery Posted on

    This flower nail helps me create beautiful buttercream flowers. I can make small and big flowers depending on the size of the project. The price is great.

    Posted on

    A great nail. I think it is a little small for a bigger roses I like to do. I like the design or the nail having the ridges on the nail helps spin

    Posted on

    This ateco # 9 flower nail works really well for piping larger flowers. It is constructed well and cleans up easily. A very good purchase.

    Posted on

    Perfect flower nail. Ridges help to have an easy grip to spin while making flowers. Also good to hold small fondant pieces while shaping until they harden.

    from Sweet Changes Posted on

    from ashlexdrei tradings /sweets by chef jhay Posted on

    Unfortunately, this flower nail item was already broken, bent where the head of the nail meets the nail when it arrived, and being that it was so cheap and we were swamped at an event, we just let it go. :(

    Posted on

    Thank you for your review! We are sorry this flower nail was broken. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you shortly to credit you for the faulty item.

    I've been using this as a baking pin although it is supposed to be a decorating tool. These help bring just as much heat to the middle of the cake, as it goes to the outside. Make sure you spray with cooking spray first!

    Posted on

    I have a couple of these at home that I use all the time for my larger roses! I even have used them for a heating core in my larger cakes. Works great!

    from Brittany Posted on

    Great flower nail at a great price. Super smooth surface allows the easy removal of buttercream flowers using a scissor or knife. Would definitely buy again!

    Posted on

    this flower nail its a lot better than the plastic nails, its less sticky and greasy to use with buttercream. A must have for a cake decorator.

    from Angel's Bake Shop Posted on

    I bought 15 of these, not to use for buttercream roses, but to actually bake with! We use them in my cake shop to better evenly bake sheet cakes and larger pan sizes. Very pleased with these, I like the texture, which makes it easier to hold.

    from Sophisticakes Posted on

    I love flowers on cake and this nail is a must when piping them. For the price, you can afford to buy 4 or 5 and practice perfecting your work. The handle is ridge and feels great. The size is perfect for small and large flowers.

    from The Travels Inc Posted on

    fits in the hand great. love making flower for cake

    Flower nail (the nail part) rusted. The round platform is too small; great if you need to make small roses or flowers for cupcakes but not for cakes.

    Posted on

    Thank you for your review! We are sorry to hear that you've been having trouble with rust on the flower nail. To avoid rusting, we recommend hand washing this item.

    WebstaurantStore Customer Solutions

    The Ateco flower nail is a great quality. I feel as if they are less prone to rust, which shows their quality. I usually use them for roses, and it makes constructing a rose so much easier because you can turn the nail with your finger and see each angle of your flower. Very happy with this product.

    Posted on

    This is the first flower nail I have purchased but it seems to be very flimsy. These have been getting bent just kicking around in my equipment drawer.

    from NewLeaf Posted on

    this flower nail is metal, and easier to hold than plastic ones because of the thread. am planning on ordering more so i can use them as heating cores so cakes bake faster in the center and have less of a dome!

    Posted on

    This is a fantastic flower nail! It has great grip on it so your fingers dont slip while piping roses and the price is amazing , it was also shipped super fast as well! Definitely recommend.

    Posted on

    These flower nails are great for making all kinds of flowers!

    Great product! I love the fact that it has a very strong grip, so it's easier to turn while making flowers. However, the flat surface is too small so it's better to work with small to medium size flowers.

    Posted on

    Great price orthis flower nail. I was a little disappointed that is rusted a bit. I am still able to use it for my flowers and as heating cores for my cakes.

    Posted on

    I really enjoy this flower nail because it has an excellent grip on it; This allows for a smooth twisting action while piping the flower design. The nail "head" itself is large and can accommodate a large flower.

    Posted on

    This very sturdy flower nail is perfect for detailed flower making. In addition, we use them in the middle of cakes to help bake more evenly. Great product.

    from Bakers Buzzin' LLC Posted on

    These flower nails are built to last. They have a grooved stem which really grips your fingers as you slowly turn the nail. This is a huge help when making a lot of flowers quickly!

    from JW Cakes Posted on

    A completed rose on one of these nails

    This piping nail is great for practicing butter cream flowers. I use it all the time and the grooves are great for spinning it. Lets you have a nice grip and gives you better control!

    from Dancing Cats Cafe Posted on

    Our bakers have enjoyed using these flower nails. They are made from quality materials and have stood up to hundreds of washings without rusting or bending.

    from One Dish Cuisine Posted on

    These are great little nails. I got a few extra Ateco 909 1 1/4" Flower Nail #9 (August Thomsen) for when I have extra help at the shop. Very pleased with the size and price of them.

    Posted on

    These flower nails work just as expected. Great quality you know and expect from Ateco. Great price, and ease of delivery. Will be ordering more.

    flowers, nail not used to make leaves

    The Ateco 1 1/4" Flower Nail is very sturdy. I ordered two and they punched right through the cardboard box and into my hand with no ill effect on the nail. :~)

    Posted on

    Who would of thought I would start making roses for our cakes... bought this to try it first (did not know if I could get the hang of making these flowers), the only down side is that I should of bought more.

    Posted on

    I use this product for making buttercream flowers and also place it in the batter to help my cakes bake evenly. It's a quality product that works well!

    Posted on

    The most used size for piping flowers for most decorators. I use this nail to make roses to violets. Nice and flat and the perfect size to allow for easy spinning.

    from Countryside Cakes Posted on

    This is a good little hand tool to have when practicing to make flowers for cake decorating. It is easy to hold and spin directly in your hand.

    Posted on

    The flower nails are great for making daises and other flat flowers. We attach a small parchment square to the nail with icing then remove it to the freezer for easy transporting to the cake. The nail also doubles as a tool to make more even cakes by placing it upside down in a large cake pan to help conduct heat.

    from baked By Dan Posted on

    I just orederd this flower nail for the bakery. We love the price very very reasonable. alot more quality then wilton brand flower nails and flowers don't stick to nail.

    Posted on

    high quality&low price! How could it get any better? I dont think there's a better deal out there! for beginners,like myself this is dream come true!

    Posted on

    Making butter cream roses is just about impossible without a flower nail just like this one. The flower nail is so helpful with this task.

    Posted on

    This flower nail will improve your buttercream flowers by 100%, the help of the spinning is great to get an all around beautiful buttercream flower.

    Posted on

    These were bought to use in my cake pans to keep cake level while cooking. Easy to use, easy to clean. Want rust and were a very good price.

    from Lei Lei's Cuisine Posted on

    This is a great flower nail. This is NOT plastic. Metal nails for making flowers are more durable and last longer ensuring good support to make flowers for cakes.

    from Tristan's Posted on

    I love useing these when im making rose buds! Some people just use a tooth pick or what ever they can find. But its so much easier to hold onto the nail while your piping.

    Posted on

    The nail is perfect for creating intricate frosting flowers. The pin rolls smoothly between your thumb and forefinger to allow for contant motion to get even frosting strokes.

    from Queen City Cupcakes Posted on

    This is a great rose nail. It is the perfect size to make medium to large flowers (I primarily use it for roses) but other flowers can be done.

    Posted on

    this tool makes decoration a cinch when i need flowers on my cakes. its so easy to set my flowers aside while i finish the rest of the cake!

    Posted on

    Good product, good price, fast delivery service! The websturant store is the best place to buy all of your bakery supplies. I have yet to be disappointed with a purchase.

    Posted on

    I purchased several of these nails. I use them to bake larger cakes 10" and up for even baking. I use 2 for the 10" and add 1-2 more for every 2" increment of pans. The center bakes great every time.

    from Doughlicious Cakes Posted on

    I purchased these for use in my beginners cake decorating class. They performed admirably!!They are well made,a great value, and I will definitely purchase more.
