If you use Sweetex, where do you get it from?

I buy mine at globalsugarart.com - they are located in up-state New York, and they do deliver!

We would pick up the Sweetex from our local BakeMark location, I doubt they would deliver unless you had a large wholesale order.

If you do a google search you should be able to find several companies that ship Sweetex, like this one ($83 + ~$60 shipping):

thanks Jason, yes currently I use Super Hymo Shortening instead of Sweetex because there is no local carrier anywhere near me. I pay 51 plus 23 shipping from Stovercompany.com

 

They are excellent and teh Hymo is awesome.

My local GFS didn't have Sweetex, but they ordered the Wesson hi-ratio brand and it works the same. I used Sweetex before which I bought at Restaurant Depot, but they were out. GFS got the Wesson brand in the next day and I couldn't wait on RD.

Read somewhere that this is actually another brand (Alpine or some Bakemark brand) not Sweetex.

If it all tastes the same I'm not much concerned on the brand. There is a little cake shop near me that sells it, but I was wondering if there was any way I might could get it less expensive. Right now I'm paying $1 a cup for it, plus sales tax.

I found a cake supply store that will order a 50# box for me, and it comes to a little less than $2/lb.  The company will only ship it to her when the temperatures are within a certain range, though, so I have to take that into consideration.

I should say, I don't know what brand it is - probably not Sweetex.

All shortenings are not created equal which is why bakers have their favorites. If you're not too concerned about the performance then I think you'd be fine with the most accessible one you can afford. Recently a friend had me try Wesson vs Sweetex and I noticed a HUGE difference between it and Sweetex. Sharon Zambito prefers Sweetex for her BC but other cakers do fine with other brands of hi-ratio in her recipe. I suppose my post would be more relevant then to cakers who specifically want one brand (in this case Sweetex) over another.
