About the Margarine:
I was a little nervous at first because the sugar and margarine did not appear to mix well in the beginning. It took a little longer for the fluffiness of this combination to materialize. But I turned up the speed and waited- something I am horrible at! It worked out in the end.
Another mini nervous breakdown occurred when I added the eggs and milk. The margarine hardened into little bits. I kept on mixing and added the flour and cocoa butter mixture.
Another confession: I used the margarine for the frosting too. I had to mix it in quite a bit but it was great! The frosting does harden a little bit (after a while) but it is still spreadable.
The verdict: It always comes down to taste. I can honestly say that the flavour was....well...hold on I am taking another bite...oh goodness crumbs...licking my lips...sigh...okay it was DELICIOUS! Maybe I don't have a well trained pallet or something but the flavour was the same as the butter ones! (Hanging my head in shame.) If I do find this margarine on sale at .97 cents again I will buy it for recipes like this. Don't expect me to use it for my Cinnamon Bun recipe or my Christmas pound cake either! I have to maintain some shred of my snob status!
