I am traveling to Seattle for 3 months and have 4 cakes to make!
I have fallen in love with Hi ratio shortening but the only place I can find it is in Seattle is at Cash in Carry.... in 50 pounds boxes!
I only need half that (or less).... the cakes are small.
Anyone know where I can get the stuff? I will be in the Tacoma area but have no problem driving to get the stuff. My only other option is to buy it here and ship it, but that stuff is heavy!
I dont know of a place you can drive to but Alan at Global Sugar Art has it in stock!
Ya, I figure that is my last resort. Thanks
You also can buy them from Country Kitchen Sweetart. Here is the link for that,
Wich Casy & Carry did you find it at, Tacoma? I went to 3 in Seattle and none of them had it. I did find it at the Cake Decorating Supply store on Roosevelt in Seattle. She sell's it for $1.25/pound in 2 pound increments. I asked her what brand it was and she said she "thought" it was Sweetex.
I don't know what the price was at Cash & Carry, but if you found it near where you are going to be and you really need 25 pounds or so then it will probably be about a wash pricewise to drive to Seattle and get it. That's about 40 miles each way.
ok, i don't mean to hijack your thread, but does anyone know of anyplace in NC where I can find hi-ratio or sweetex?
I live in Federal Way, just north of Tacoma, WA. I bought 50 pounds of Sweetex yesterday at the Cash and Carry in Kent. I gave some to a friend but still have more than I can use. It was $77.45- a good price I thought. I think I would be willing to part with some so that it would be put to good use before it deteriorates. E-mail me and we could get together. By the way, I would like to know if it freezes well.
