Would someone please explain high ratio shortening to me and it's purpose.
Type High Ratio into the forum search engine and you'll get tons of info on this stuff. Basically it's like Crisco on steroids LOL,
Actually here is a great link that JanH usually provides, she calls it "everything you always wanted to know about Hi Ratio Shortening" http://forum.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-219731-.html
-->OMG I had no even read her post when I noticed she called it "Crisco on steroids" too. I swear I am not a copycat
