    actually butter and shortening are basically equally as bad for your. it's the same kind of fat in both. the only difference between the two is that butter is 80% fat and 20% water and shortening is 100% fat. so substituting one for the other messes with the liquidity of your recipe.

      Lard melts in your hand when you work with it. Maybe this is better than shortening. Just a thought

    Wow this tastes just like the icing in the Oreo. Really good. I used it in the middle of a chocolate cake with chocolate icing (thinned out a little) and everyone loved it. I call it my Oreo cake.
