Welcome to the Cake Decorators Q&A
I have been using Stork for perfect cakes tub for my cakes with excellent results . The stork is now changed to a vegan formula. Do you add replace some of it with butter & if so how much in proportion wise? I have been experimenting by adding 1/8 & 1/4 of stork with butter but I feel the cake texture is dense when I add more butter. What advice do you have ? thanks a mil.
The tub Stork contains a small amount of buttermilk which renders it non-vegan. The block stork does not contain buttermilk and is therefore fine for vegans. As far as I know, this has always been the case for many years.
I feel the best thing to do, is check with the manufacturers of this product to get the definitive answer. They can be contacted by using the following email:
I do use the block sometimes, which is vegan. First, I beat room temperature stork with sugar for several minutes. This helps to incorporate the air needed to create light, fluffy cakes.
Hope suggestions help 🙂
Thanks for the reply. The tub stork spread what is now available does not have buttermilk & it's vegan just like the block stork. I sent a message through the contact message link that was sent above & will see their response. Thanks a mil.
Let’s hope they can give you a satisfactory answer. I would so much appreciate an update when they reply. Many thanks. 🙂
The reply from them was that the new vegan formula would give the same results.
I now use the vegan stork just the way I normally use in cakes & I find it's perfect too.
May be the vegan formula is somewhat better than other vegan spreads that I use.
Thank you so much for taking the time to post back with your results. This information will be immensely useful to other members, not only here on Cakeflix Q & A but also on the Cakeflix Facebook site. I will refer to your feedback each time this question is raised. Much appreciated. xx 🙂
