I'm making an Italian cream cake that called for 1 stick of butter and 1/2 a cup of shortening. I forgot to put in the shortening. Do you think it will be ok?
Fat adds flavor and texture to baked goods:
Will your cake still be edible, yes. Will it be a good as if you added the shortening, no.
But if you've never made or eaten this cake before, it could be passable...
Thanks Jan. I guess I'll find out tomorrow. Thank goodness this is not my first cake for the group .
