I don't think that I would sub margerine for shortening.

What type of recipe is it? Frosting?

you can substitute shorenting with maragine but you will have to chill the dough so it doesn't spread alot.

Yes, you can...

Handy chart of baking substitutions:

(You could also remove a bit of liquid. Just reverse the process for substituting Crisco for margarine/butter.)
