I was looking at the Brite White Buttercream Recipe that calls for High Ratio Shortening and I only have Crisco. Can I use it? Also, what is bright white? I asked someone at the cake store yesterday and they sold me a tiny bottle of liquid that she said would make my icing whiter - is that the right stuff?
One more thing, why is 6X powder sugar so important because mine is 10X??
Crisco is to hi-ratio what milk is to heavy cream.
Sure, you can substitute one for the other, but it's not the same thing.
Brite White is an icing base not a white dye. There are also other icing bases... Angel White, Snow White and others.

6x powdered sugar is not sold in most supermarkets (although Gordon Food Service carries it).
