Hey guys, bad news--the WHOLE WORLD is out of silken tofu.

I'm making Kittee's carrot cake from Papa Tofu for my boyfriend's birthday, and I can't find silken tofu anywhere. The recipe calls for a half pound of blended silken tofu, so I got soy yogurt instead--will it work, and if so, how much is the equivalent of a half pound? I have 6 oz of soy yogurt, so I'm guessing I need to figure out what to do about the additional 2 oz (how gross would it be to use vegenaise? thoughts?), but I'm not totally sure.

On a totally unrelated note, how long does the hollandaise sauce from vegan brunch last in an airtight container in the fridge? At two weeks old, will it kill me?

I've used the substitution in the opposite direction (blended silken tofu in place of soy yogurt, cup for cup) and it's worked fine. There are cakes that use mayo, so it's not a crazy idea to try it, but I've never done it.

Thanks! It'd only be a little mayo, so maybe I'll try it out... I'm just not sure if the soy yogurt is measured by volume or weight? The tofu is def measured by weight, so I'm hoping the conversion works out!
