I saw this last night at the grocery...has anyone used this for BC?
Will it be nasty?
I can't decide if I want to take a change on wasting 5# of ps to try it in Sugarshack's BC. Any thoughts?
I know icing was made with lard a long time ago
I don't know why but your post put into my head the image of pork flavored buttercream. Blech!
It doesn't really taste like anything so I wouldnt' think using it in your buttercream would be an issue. I've used the animal based fat shortening in other things without issue but I haven't personally tried it in buttercream. (I accidently bought some and didn't realize that's what it was until I got it home. )
I've noticed that it seems a bit heavier than vegetable based shortening (denser? not sure how to explain the texture) so if anything would be an issue I would think it would be that. Now I'm curious!
If you're selling cakes, please keep your customers in mind... for me that would be inedible~ I'm vegetarian and I just find the idea incredibly disgusting!
