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.

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.

I just make a buttercream without the shortening. Using all butter.

Is there a way to make this with something healthier than vegetable shortening?
