I have a huge and i am talking i have to at least make 4000 servings of cake (for a 32000 people event)

and i will be sp busy baking the cake that i wont have time or a big enough mixer to make the buttercream!

this is also a donated cake so i am not getting paid so paying more in shipping than what the bc costs is not an option.

I live in the durham region (ontario) so preferably within driving distance

the supplier i have doesnt sell bc anymore because there is not enough demand for it

Sam's club was going to be my suggestion also. A five gallon bucket is about $30.

has anyone every heard of or used "blended shortening"?
it has been the only one I can find in Bulk it is a 44Lbs box. I will make the bc but I just want to know if it is going to turn out the same as if I used vegetable shortening like I always do. I always do a 50/50 mix.

and I know everyone says high ratio shortening but what is it really??? the only place I have ever seen the name on anything was at the bulk barn! how do you know if it is high ratio? and more importantly maybe that is what blended shortening is??????


I have until the 25 th this month the event is the 26th
