yh9080~ Thanks for the heads up about the new Crisco with the old labels. I bought two cans. Now I know not to use it!

Have any of you tried Cakepro's Buttercream w/ Trans Fat-Free Crisco? I tried it today and still seemed to have trouble. It is suppose to work with the new Crisco, so maybe I did something else wrong.

One more thing. I keep reading about hi-ratio shortening. What is it and where do you buy it? I am very new at decorating. So, I apologize for the silly questions!

I get my Sweetex (hi-ratio shortening) from Cash & Carry (a.k.a. Smart & Final). They don't keep it in my local store, but they special order it for me.

Okay, I just checked my "Old Crisco" and saw that it contains 1.5 grams of trans fat. The new Crisco that I bought (which is the exact same packaging) has 0 grams trans fat.

Is this the same as everyone else on here....am I going to have a problem with my new container? I am making my own wedding cake next month!! What am I going to do? HELP!!

Lizbuth ~ I hate to be the bearer of bad news but that's what happened to me. I was buying all the "old" labeled cans of Crisco I could find and didn't realize until yesterday (thanks to yh9080 thumbs_up.gif ) that it had 0 transfat. You might want to make some and start practicing and experimenting before your wedding. Or do like Brandisbaked suggests and just "buy some Sweetex and be done with it." icon_biggrin.gif I'm going to try to find some in my area or at least someone who might special order it for me.

We don't HAVE Sweetex in Madisonville KY. I'm going to go to WalMart and check out their brand. But, I'm going to READ, READ, READ the labels!!

Do you have a Sysco or FSA? Or even a bakery that might sell you some? As a last resort, you can order it online...

I will never use regular shortening in my baking/icings again.

I have always used the Walmart brand shortening and have never had a problem with it. I agree with Brandisbaked though...we all need to get over it and switch what you use!

Pardon my ignorance, but what do you mean by "new" Crisco? I haven't had to purchase any in quite some time, but will have to when I do a very large cake in July for 350-400 people.........what does or doesn't it do? I love crusting bc icing.........
post #27 of 50
I have switched to the Walmart brand, and it is working fine. No problems with taste or texture. Hope this helps.

They reformulated Crisco so that it has no trans fat. Many people have complained that icing made with the "new" Crisco doesn't hold up as well. Although, others say they don't notice any difference.

........

Then MY suggestion would be to NOT use the "New" Crisco! Too many air bubbles...not enough crusting...too fluffy for some designs.
