    I only recently learned there was such a thing as hi ratio shortening and now I want to try a buttercream recipe using it. I've seen about a million online, but I'd like a tried and true one from someone I know but I don't know anyone other than you guys here! LOL

    Can anyone share a good recipe with me, or give me some hints on what to look for when searching online, and also any tips on how to make it the best it can be.
