I am looking to order some hi ratio shortening and creme bouquet so I can make sugar shacks buttercream. I just ordered her first dvd and would like to have my buttercream supplies here before the dvd arrives.
I know I can order these items from The Bakers Kitchen but I was wondering if any of you guys know of a supply store near Chicago? Im located in Joliet, which is about a half hour from Chicago.
Thanks so much. I will check them out
I'd like to know, too!! I've been getting mine online.
I get mine from Gordon's Food.
what is the brand name? I called Gordons but the guy on the phone said they didnt carry it. I'll have to stop by there myself to check it out.
When I first went to GFS, the staff couldn't locate Sweetex or hi-ratio in the computer so I was told it was not available. (Might be listed as "cake and icing shortening".)
However, puzzlegut was kind enough to provide the Sweetex product number, 1080220 (from her GFS order) - and with that info my GFS was able to order it for me.
They sell 3lbs of Sweetex on amazon.com for $9 which is where I usually purchase it from or a restaurant supply store nearby! Good luck!
