I am looking to try the Sugarshack methods for Buttercream and i was hoping to find some High Ratio Shortening locally to try.... then later I can order in bulk.

Anyone in the Raleigh/Cary/RTP , NC area know where I might be able to find some?

Thanks all!!!!!

I buy hi-ratio shortening at Southern Foods in Greensboro, NC. It comes in 50 lb blocks. Hi-ratio is a million times better than regular shortening.

I just spoke with Paper town and what they have is CK brand but she is going to look into carrying Sweetex, she is very interested and didn't know anything about it. So if any of you want them to carry it I'd give them a call in the next couple of days and let them know.

I've used the CK high ratio shortening and it worked really well for me. I didn't need to order 50lbs. and I wanted to try the high ratio. I've been meaning to get to Crawford's Creations since we don't have much in the way of supply stores here in Charlotte which is just insane if you ask me.
