Hi everyone, I know this question has probably been asked many a time, but type crisco into the forum search and you get sooo many items to search through!

What I am after is a UK equivalent to Crisco, a brand name would be great if anyone knows of one! Something that is widely available in Sainsburys etc!

I hope someone out there knows as there are so many buttercreams etc on CC that I want to try out!

Thanks in Advance

white flora is very similar, hate crisco myself, I don't like icing made with it but it has been a revelation when rolling out fondant!
