I need to do buttercream but dont have High Ratio Vegtable Shortening , and the recipe calls for it... Is there anything I can substitute it with. Whats the difference between regular and High Ratio Vegtable Shortening? Help, please...
Im not sure, but I have heard that the WalMart brand shortning still has trans-fat in it unlike Crisco. I could be wrong though
you can use regular shortening for buttercream
Hi ratio holds more liquid, so it beats up lighter and flufflier.
so should I use regular? Will it turn out okay?
yes, it will turn out fine. I use it all the time
