I just rec'd my order from "bake it pretty dot com" (remove the spaces) and these tubes are HUGE they are at least TWICE as big as Wiltons 1M a 2D. I'll try to post pictures by tomorrow but these things are HUGE. You can't hardly tell from the pictures because nothing to compare then too but my jaw dropped when I opened them. I'm a noob so the pros probably already know about this.

You can see the 1M tip looks tiny beside the big one. All these look huge compared to the largest Wilton ones I could find. Wilton 1m, 2D and 6B I believe are the sizes.

I guess I am the only one who thought this was a big deal, sorry.

Just wondering but they happen to look like pastry tips, I have a set of both and I know my pastry ones are huge. I hope you aren't too disappointed, I am sure you can use them for something icon_biggrin.gif

Those are big! And we all know that when it comes to tips, size DOES matter. icon_lol.gif

Be sure to post pictures when you get time to try them out.

I inherited a bunch of tips just like that -- about nine times bigger than the 2D tip! I still haven't used them, but they are kind of cool! icon_rolleyes.gif

No not disappointed I am thrilled! I have been looking high and low for these and I have seen cupcakes done with them on some blogs which led me to the bake it pretty website.

Those open star tips are what I use to ice cupcakes.

Leah I can't wait to try all of them. I have seen CCs iced with them before and they were so cute. Even the plain one it made them look like Dairy Queen ice cream cones..

Ohh sorry it was so much to be shipped to you, that sux but I think you'll have fun with them too! She shipped really quickly to me so you should get yours pretty quick (considering the distance). icon_smile.gif I wanted the closed star tip too but went ahead and got all of them just becasue of the shipping..lol

I also wanted to add that I saw on some blog where someone used the french one (the one with lots of spikes) and they covered the whole top of cc with a sort of drop star (1) and it looked like a big hersheys kiss, with ridges...

That is one but there is another, I'll see if I can find the link. You can tell these were the huge tips because the swirl is like one go round then the center. Wilton 1M takes me 2 to 2.5 times round, which rings true because I said these tips were like twice as large....I'll def post pics with I use them.

CC member pinkziab says she knows for a fact Planet cake uses the Ateco 809 for their cupcakes. I decided to go look today on the tips I just received and yep they are Ateco 809, 869, 849 and 829. Closed star, open star, plain and french (like open star but has lots more grooves) not in that order.

Oh I found the hershey's kiss shaped one. I think this would look awesome in chocolate too!

I looked at the website and almost ordered the cupcake package and then thought--will I need to buy a special coupler for these tips, or can they be dropped in the bag and used alone? Does that make sense? If so, does anyone have the answer?

You know I have the huge coupler already and didn't think about it when I ordered them but I think they can be dropped into a bag alone, of course I haven't tried them yet but they have a nice ridge at the top to fit more snugly in the bag. I am also guessing they can because the seller would have sold a coupler to use with them and she doesn't. You could always email her, she's quick to respond.

FYI Her shipping for me was pretty cheap, less than 5.00 but we do live in the same state but opposite ends.

I have this exact collection of large tips, and they're easier to use without the XL coupler. Just drop the tips into a bag and snip. You'll probably have to cut off more of the bag than you usually do since the tips are so big, but it's doable.

This might help some folks who are curious to see the different swirls the tips can make.
