I'm making a a Poor Man's Cake, my grandmother's recipe, and it calls for lard. Two of the people who will be served this cake are vegans, and since I'm nice and all I'd rather not give them cake with lard in it. What's the best vegan non-trans-fatty substitute for lard, when baking? Specific brand names would be appreciated (I'm in the US).
