I'm making a vegan frosting recipe because a child is allergic to milk products. But, I hate to buy a whole package of nonhydrogenated shortening when I only need 1/2 cup. Do you think I could use Crisco instead? TIA!!!!!
I want to know too! Non-hydrogenated shortening is hard to find.
I guess if no one replies, I'll just give it a try with Crisco and see what happens!
Well, I made my vegan mummy cupcakes just now. I did use regular vegetable shortening (not Crisco, but my grocery store brand). It worked fine as far as I can tell.
I did notice that it didn't take color as well as I would've liked. It didn't matter on the mummy eyes -- they're supposed to be kind of disgusting anyway, LOL, but I wouldn't have been happy if I were making a pretty cake with it.
