Has anyone tried the shortening in Bulk Barn for their icing. I seen it last night, but was afraid to buy it. I always use Crisco. I can get Hi-ratio from local cake shops, but it is very expensive. I would not buy the premade icing from Bulk Barn, it is gross

Any input would be appreciated

Bulk Barn's shortening is the only kind I use now. I don't think you will be disappointed!

I'm Canadian.  I love the high-ratio shortening from Bulk Barn!  It makes an awesome creamy buttercream.  I would highly recommend it!
