I am getting ready to order some Sweetex shortening and I am debating getting 50 pounds. I only make a few cakes a month, but I use Sugarshacks icing recipe. It uses about 5 cups per batch. I have three questions. How long can this shortening be stored at room temperature? How do you go about freezing shortening and how long can it be frozen?
Under ideal conditions, I've read that it can be stored for one year...
However, I have repackaged mine into food safe, food service containers I bought at Sam's which are now in my freezer (along with my frozen butter).
Other members have repackaged into recipe portions using freezer bags.
I purchased the 50# cube because my local cake supply store was selling 3# containers of translucent & yellowing Sweetex at outrageous prices.
