I tried CK high ratio shortening with Sharron's icing recipe, and I personally hated it. I paid a fortune to have it sent and was so dissappointed with results. It seemed to grow in the bowl and I had more air bubbles than I had ever had before. I have used both Crisco and generic regular shortening with this recipe and had great results. But I tried it twice with ck hr shortening and had the same problem both time. It was the only brand the local store could order. I didn't care for the tast myself either. That's my experience with it, but I have heard that others have great results with it. I ended up throwing the 50# box to the garbage outside...a huge waste of money....but lessoned learned for me, IMO
