Has anybody had any success with shipping hi ratio shortening in the summer? I've been doing more cakes (mainly of the practice variety) and realized I've gone through my stockpile!

I need to order more, but I'm afraid it will get to me in a big puddle of goo, considering I'm in the extreme Deep South.

Any ideas?

I ordered some from Into the Oven. It came super fast and was in perfect condition. I live in Texas.

I live in Charleston, SC, and ordered some from The Baker's Kitchen and amazingly it arrived last week in 95+ degree heat in perfect condition. I was shocked but very happy!!!

Thanks guys! I guess I'll bite the bullet and order some more - otherwise there will be no more cakes!

Karen, thanks for posting as I was wondering the same thing.
Off track-I see you live in Mobile. My mother grew up in Mt. Vernon (up SR 40 about 30 minutes) and spent her school years in Mobile. Was there last year for a family reunion. It is one of the most friendliest places I visit, even though I don't get there too often anymore.
