I accidentally bought the non-vegetable shortening instead of the vegetable shortening! Will it effect my frosting at all? Please Help! Thanks =]
Uh, yes. your icing will taste, let's say . . ."funny." After all you'll have beef or pork fat in it.
Do you mean lard? No, no definitely don't use that for icing....yuck!! Just smell the stuff
Oh no... not that animal stuff.
Here's a post from another member who also picked up the wrong shortening:
it's not lard. it is shortening just not the vegetable kind. it looks and smells like vegetable shortening but not as smooth i guess. i decided not to risk it and just buy vegetable shortening tomorrow! thanks everyone for your help!
