could i replace the shortening with another ingredient?
For this recipe, we call for shortening. We also highly recommend using it in this recipe for the texture purpose.
However, you could replace it if you didn’t have any on hand, or don’t prefer the taste.
Most people switch out shortening for butter or margarin. The ingredients are also straight across, meaning you don’t need more or less butter or margarin, to replace the shortening.
Most people choose to use butter instead, because of the flavor, but margarin would also work great. Be sure the butter or margarin is not melted, but at room temperature.
Keep in mind, your filling won’t be the same texture or flavor if you use butter or margarin to replace the shortening. For this reason, we highly recommend using the shortening.
would the filling taste good with a white cake mix?
I love this filling, because it pairs perfectly with any cake mix. You could definitely use a white, yellow, or vanilla cake mix for this recipe.
You could honestly use it in any cake mix flavor. Funfetti, strawberry, lemon, or cherry chip would also be delicious with this filling.
