I know many of us use hi ratio shortening in our icings,...but do any of you also use it in your cakes too?

Absolutely.  50 lb box.  It goes in everything.  Even biscuits.  "Cause I'm not gonna buy two different types of shortening.  #Imcheap

OK...thanks Leah.  The reason I was wondering is that the local GFS now carries hi ratio in store in 50 pound boxes...so no more having to order it the smaller tubs.  But 50 is a lot of shortening, but if used in cakes and icings too it would be more practical for me to purchase this size.

Heck, Jeff, in a pinch, when I didn't have oil, I melted in down and fried something in it.  It isn't designed for that, but when that 50 box is sitting there. . .  I used it for everything that uses solid fat
