Hi! I've just discovered your amazing site and i have got to say it is incredible!! I've been a food science geek for some time now (got hooked when i start watch harold mcgee's lecture series online). I've tried to put it into baking but but i've never found any good sources that put that knowledge into vegan recipes the way you do! I can't understate how much I'm loving your site!
This recipe looks great as vegan cream cheese costs its weight in gold in new zealand (where i'm currently at), and is weird tasting! I want to make a white chocolate icing and i wonder if i could do it by making the shortening with coco butter and basically adopting this recipe? Do you think that'll work or would that not taste strongly of chocolate enough? Thank you!
