Butter flavoured shortening vs Butter

Which is your ammo :) I just don't get it why people still use shortening when we all know for a fact that it's a lot worse than butter, in terms of health and flavour... yes shortening makes the cake last longer, but... why bother when it's home made? you want a moister cake? add 1/4 cup of mayonaisse to your cake and it'll be superb! So, which, and why?

hi, alex! actually, i usually use margarine instead of butter when i bake. well, because it's a cheaper substitute. :) i may risk using butter though when i'm really good in baking. LOL! anyway, thanks for the tip about adding mayo to the cake. but, do you just add it, or do you alter the measurements of the other ingredients? happy new year! i figure you're a great cook. would really love to try some of your recipes. :)
