Vegetable shortening such as Crisco. I've used cheaper off brand vegetable shortenings and haven't noticed any difference.

Vegetable shortening is what my Mother and I always used. Back then, in the 40s and 50s we used a shortening called Spry. I can't remember if it was cheaper than Crisco or not. That is just what my Mother always used. By the time I was baking on my own, Spry was no longer available and I used Crisco for all of the things that called for shortening.

I would like to try making my own banana icing or whipped cream frostings. Any body got any good ideas. Thanks.

You can make banana icing by making plain white cake icing, except in place of the vanilla use banana extract. (05/31/2004)
