Every so often I read something about the fact that trans fats will eventually be banned all together. What wouild you do about your icing, those of you who use Sweetex in your icing or other hi ratio shortening?
Just curious what you plan to do? Crisco dopes not work well for me anymore.

Try indydebi's recipe here in the recipe section. She uses only Crisco, and adds the magic ingredient "Dream Whip"...and has never had a problem now that Crisco is 0 TF. Go to the search function and type in "indydebi" and be sure to restrict your search to "topic titles only"'ll find lots of good tips on her technique.

Crisco phasing out trans fats never made a blip on my radar with my buttercream icing recipe. Although I use high ratio shortening because I love its performance and it's cheap (locally, it's like $36 for a 50 pound block), I will be happy when they do away with trans fats in all products. I won't have any problems because my recipe uses Crisco and high ratio shortening interchangeably (Crisco is what my students use; high ratio is what I use).
