I was wondering if butter flavored crisco can be substituted for reg when making BC. It seems like I remember this being a no no as something in the butterflavor makes it a bit of a different consistency. Then again, I may be just making that up.

Anywhooo, let me know if one of you has substituted and what the results were?

Thank you,

Vicki

Thanks!! I don't really mind the yellow color, the cake base color will be yellow and then green for the tractor so a yellow tint won't be a problem. I just want to enhance the butter taste without using too much butter flavor!

I always use the butter flavored crisco in my chocolate buttercream....smooth, creamy and delicious! I don't use it in my regular buttercream due to the color!!

When you use butter flavored Crisco it also makes nice pastel colors when mixing colors. My first batch using the butter flavored was luckily for an Easter cake last year. Every color I mixed up from it turned out to be a nice pastel shade of the color I wanted. Now I use it every time I need pastel colors.
