What is hi ratio? I've been reading everyone's posts about using it. I know that it's a substitute for shortening, but what makes it better? Should I be using that instead of crisco?

I figured out what it is. But what stores carry it? Or am I forced to order it online?

It's not a substitute for shortening, it is a better type of shortening. Less greasy in my opinion. You can get it at a cake supplies store or online or maybe you can ask a local bakery if they would sell you some if they use it. After you try hi ratio shortening, it is hard to go back to the regular stuff. When I have to, I use the Walmart brand of shortening, not Crisco. Good luck.

They sell it at the "Bulk Barn" here in Canada. It does make a world of difference... so much smoother icing!!!
