I want to try making a crusting buttercream using high ratio shortening (I usually use SMBC but want a tasty alternative).
I recently purchased a small amount of high ratio shortening from our local cake decorating store. They package their edible products themselves (into smaller containers from bulk purchases), so I bought a 250 g container.
It's yellowy...not white, like regular shortening. Is that the colour it's supposed to be? I've never seen it before, so have nothing to compare it too; however, I've looked online and in any photos I can find, the high ratio appears whiter than what I have in front of me.
Is that normal?
