I need a 1/2 inch round pastry tip to pipe cream puffs for a croquembouche, but the tips are sold by numbers not sizes.
Can someone please tell me what number the round tip is that would be a 1/2 inch??

THANK YOU!!!!!

that looks very small...maybe it would work for filling the puffs, but I am looking for a 1/2 inch round tip to pipe the choux paste into the balls to make the puffs themselves...

Do you know the number for this tip???

THANK YOU!!!

Ateco brand #866 French pastry tip is 1/2" in diameter. It's not round like a piping tip; it's more like a star tip with smaller 'teeth.' Hope I've described it right.

Wilton's 1A is a big round tip. Do not know what diameter it is, but it should surely work.

If all else fails, what about using a bag with just the coupler in it - standard, or large - that should give you the size/shaping that you need ?

Using a tip #12 and more pressure and you will achieve what you set out to do.

Thank you for your help!!!
Wilton is all out of tip #1A... so I think I will try to find a #2A.
If I can't I will try the coupler idea....

Thanks!!

Instead of a pastry tip use a small cookie scoop...like the ones you use for drop cookie dough.

She wants a tip for inserting the cream, correct? And the cookie scoop would be for the puffs themselves? I'm thinking of trying one of these for my holiday dinner. But I may poop out and use storebought cream puffs!
