Does anyone know a UK brand of shortening to use in cake decoration?

It's to make pure whitre buttercream icing. I know Cisco is an American brand - But I need something I can find in the local Sainsburys!!! (just for the record - is Shortening LARD?!)

Details:

  1. spunkym --- Not knowing what brands of shortening are available to you.I suggest you call or talk to a local baker, Tell him or her that you are looking for a high ratio shortening and ask for their recommendation for a brand name that is available in your local food stores they would recommend for cake icing. And for the 2nd. part of your question. No shortening is not lard. shortening is made from vegetable oil. Lard is made from animal fat.Wishing you luck with your cake icing. jim b
