Try IndyDebi's bc. It's in the recipe section here.
I just bought high ratio shortening and haven't used it yet. Do you use the same amount as Crisco?
Alpine is another brand name of Hi Ratio Shortening. Actually I use less HR than the fat called for in the recipe. HR holds more liquid, so you really can use less. It's expensive, so using less is good. And before you ask me how much less, I just had to experiment with my recipe. The original called for 1 lb shortening to 1 pound sugar. I use 3/4 pound HR to 1 pound sugar.
I agree with Leah_s you can use less, and it is very expensive but it is worth the money. My cake supply store carries the CK brand so that's what I purchased. I have also made IndyDebi's recipe with just regular shortening and it works just fine too, no issues there, they all taste good! Buttercream is my favorite its never too sweet for me, most times I would rather just have the frosting and skip the cake!
