Ok, I know this is CAKE central, but I want to see more pics of the wedding!! (and ofcourse the cake is GORGEOUS!!) congratulations!!
no, michaels doesn't carry any kind of shortening, but if you have a cake supply store nearby they probably will...also look into bakery suppliers, like BakeMark - they carry it...and then ofcourse you can order online. hth
