What are these ingredients?

by Monique


I'm from Australia and I'm having trouble with knowing what some of your ingredients are.
I'm guessing powered sugar is what we call icing sugar?
I'm not sure what Crisco or shortening are. And how much is a stick of butter?
I'm finding your website amazing and so helpful.

From the editor:

Hi Monique,

Great to hear from a fellow Aussie. To answer your questions:

1. Yes, powdered sugar is icing sugar.

2. Shortening is Copha in Australia, but you can also substitute coconut oil very successfully (available at most health food stores).

3. A stick of butter is four ounces, so that's 113 grams for you.

I'm really glad you're finding the site useful. Thanks for stopping by.

Process of the acquisition and provision of the information is very vital and pivotal. It is intricate and difficult at the same time. It is rigorous and analytical. The custom essay writing prospects of the success are increased and enhanced. It is beneficial at the cost of the education and kinds of the literacy.
