1. is there a substitute for crisco (i live outside the US...) 2. what's the weight of a small can of pineapple?

Hi, i would like to know how small should be the pineapple can. I don't know in Puerto Rico how to find buttermilk in the supermarket. If anyone knows let me know.

Crisco is shortening I think.

I tried this cake and for the most part it was great! I did feel that the icing was very strong with the rum extrac, I think I'd try it with 1/2 teaspoon and the cake was good I followed it to a "T" and found it a little bland not enough zest per say but it was very good. Will deffinatly use it again and add a few touches. Thanks

I liked the cake, but man I found the icing way too runny! I even doubled the icing sugar, but it was really difficult! I think if I try this cake again, I'll use a different cream cheese icing. It was delicious other than that!
