Hi, thanks for your reply , first of all the lowest % protein cake flour I can get here in Mexico is 10% .. which is acceptable I suppose and my query is does anyone have a tried and tested Hi Ratio cake formula because I simply dont have one ..I have bought all the ingredients --high ratio margarine and emulsifyer gel ( puratos ) but they dont have a recommended formula which for a global company as famous is quite suprising .. but here in Mexico Puratos they havent got a clue ..iso thats my predicament ..do you have a tried and tested formula ??High ratio cake is pretty foolproof......what problems are you having?
wow !!! I am amazed at your reply , that you took the time and effort in not only answering my questions but also posted cake formulas , i am lost for words ( and let me tell you young lady i am hardly ever lost for words ha ha !!! , thankyou so much xox ,
Yes, “liquid cake shortening” is just a generic term for hi-ratio shortening. Use the stuff you have from Puratos in whatever form it comes in by equal weight.wow !!!

ps. dont know if i can get my hands on liquid shortening here but can i use melted cake margarine ( puratos ) ....? , thanks
You know, that’s something I’ve never actually used and I’m unfamiliar with it, so I Googled it. It’s basically an emulsifying agent that allows batters to hold more water, resulting in a more consistent crumb with an extended shelf life. Here is a description I found:sorry but another question has just jumped into my head , what is cake emulsifying gel used for ?
I was just searching on the internet for high ratio cake shortening in solid or liquid form and cant find anything here in Mexico , the only shortening I can find is normal white shortening but not especially for high ratio cakes , will that do ???The one from Puratos is called Aristo cake but its margarine not shortening plus its solid not liquid ..x
