Never heard of cake margarine and I am a Brit - looks like Goodman Fielder have a product called that though.

I've never heard of it either.It sounds revolting.

Use butter instead.

Well I'm English and I know exactly what it is - Echo - sold in a solid block like butter but cooking margarine.Its just a cheaper and less salty alternative to butter so I'd use butter instead.

I remember stork and echo too.Shows how old I am.I wanted it for the pastry for Cornish pasties as I have justgot the true recipe from the Cornish pastie web site.Might have to make the pastry I normally do.Thanks anyway guys.

Have heard of Stork but not Echo and I don't remember Stork being called 'cake margarine'.I think I would use butter as well going by the ingredients on the Goodman Fielder site.

Wow, that's a blast from the past, I too remember Stork & Echo margarines.They were long before the soft margarines, my Mum used either for baking.

Cake margarine, is a "Bakels "product. We used it in our Bakery. I have not seen it in any Supermarket.
