The last time I bought Sweetex I got it from BakeMark but they don't do cash and carry anymore. SUCKS! Anyway, with the heat here does anyone know of a place to buy it locally. Or will deliver for a good price.

Have you tried Elizabeth's in Euless? They may be able to help you out.

You wouldn't know where I could get my hands on "white" margarine would you? I've looked everywhere in the DFW area.

Try Treat Me Sweet in Benbrook on 377. I went for the first time on Friday. They are very small and a limited selection of supplies, but I asked about ordering a 50 lbs box and they said they could.

Elizabeth's only sells PS99 (i think). And I called Treat Me Sweet on Friday, she quoted me $125.00 icon_eek.gif She can't be serious. I can order it and express it cheaper than that.

Sorry Kathys90, I don't use margarine much so don't know where to find white margine.

Yeah, Elizabeth's carries only PS99. I didn't like that stuff.

kathys - Have you tried Sprouts or Central Market for white margarine?

Bake Mart was my only option and you had to be a licensed restaurant. I tried this before in the Dallas area with absolutely no luck and the hi-ratio at cake carousel and Cakes Amore is not Sweetex so I'm not sure what to tell you. I think everyone in Dallas could benefit from someone carrying it. Also I tried the Restaurant Depot but they don't carry it either. They have a very limited baking section.

I wish I had happier news.

That is just ridiculous to me. Is Sweetex not that popular? I called around to all the cake stores i knew of, and no luck. I called Char's cake fixin and the owner told me to go to the grocery store. icon_lol.gif I told him, you can't buy it at the grocery store. I am so mad right now.

I bought the PS99, but never used it, as someone on CC warned me that it was a mixer "killer"!

No I haven't tried Sprouts or Central Market....I'll have to give them a try! I use the sweetex in my buttercream too, so I'll be interested in knowing where you get it.

I'm almost tempted to purchase from out of state and have it shipped (the sweetex and the white margarine both). Sorry I couldn't be more help!

It's a brand of high ratio shortening.

Hi, I just saw this post as I was looking around the forums. I'm not sure what kind it is, but Chars Cake Supplies in Fort Worth sells high ratio shortning in small amounts.. I bought some there about a week ago and it made a great icing.

Do you have a GFS (Gordon Food Service) by you? My GFS does not carry Sweetex in the store, but one of their suppliers carries it. So when I order Sweetex from GFS they have it in their store the next day.
