Did You Know You Can Use Shortening in Place of Butter?

Did you know you can use shortening in place of butter?

I have looked this up recently and have found that you can replace butter with shortening for baking items like cakes and cookies. You can make the replacement in equal amounts. I have used this both in cookies and cake with good results. However, if the butter is important to the flavor of the item, for example if you are making butter frosting, then using shortening will not be a good idea.
