could someone please tell me what kind of shortening you use i used a diiferent shortening in the same receipe and it was not good and i was trying to find out what to use some people has said that they quit using crisco and i was needing to know what kind to use thanks dorothy from tenn
indydebi's frosting recipe work very well with the new Crisco:
Or perhapsvrmcc1's high humidity b/c recipe:
(Using new Crisco.)
More than a few members switched to hi-ratio shortenings when Crisco reformulated....
Everything you ever wanted to know about hi-ratio shortening:
(With opinions, recipes, where to buy.)
I haven't had problems with the Wal-mart brand all-veg. shortening. It still has the 2.5 g trans fat. Make SURE you get the ALL-VEG! The cans look very similar and you don't want shortening with meat fats! YUCK! (<-that's the vomit face)
If you use indydebi's recipe, the dream whip has trans fat so it doesn't matter that the new Crisco doesn't.
I can say that I accidentally bought the wrong shortening with meat fat at Wal-Mart! Yuck! It made my icing really funky. It is still in my pantry, but I just use it to grease pans now.
