I found them also. That was not my issue. I need a supplier who will ship in dry ice or cryopacks...

You might have to google a supplier find one you like then call them and ask them about shipping telling them your concerns about the heat

I bought my hi-ratio from GFS. I got a 50# box for about $60. It's not the sweetex brand but it has worked fine for me. I did have to call my local GFS and have them order it in but well worth the wait (about a week if I recall correctly) and cost icon_smile.gif

I think GFS stands for Gordon's?? Right?

If so, I don't have one near me. Many fellow cakers have suggested Gordon's to me. I really wish metro Atlanta had one!

Thank you for the input!

There is also a BakeMark in Atlanta, they are a distributor but they can usually accommodate cash and carry orders.

BakeMark - Atlanta, GA   
4300 Pleasantdale Road
Tucker, GA 30340
Tel: (770) 246-1044

Crap! You have to be a business to buy from them!

All RD should need is a business license, it might be worthwhile getting a license from your city (typically in the $50-100/year range).

Thanks Jason. Just got off the phone with them. They too only sell to business. I'm not sure I can get a business license if I don't have a business? [/img]

It's been my experience that municipal licensing departments don't really care what the nature of your business is, but you can contact the city and see what the requirements and fees are for a license.

kazita Posted 6 Jul 2012 , 10:25pm

I didnt know it was so hard to get ahold of i bought a 3 pound thing of it yesterday but had to go 50 miles and to the cake store for it
