To me it  looks like youre looking at an American Recipe. Vegetable shortening - crisco is popular in the US but not used as much in elsewhere. Honestly, and you can check this online, the best substitute for vegetable shortening in pastry making etc is lard.  Corn syrup is a slightly thickened sweetening agent again popular in America not elsewhere. I'd use honey or sugar syrup- half sugar half water as a substitute. But do you want the corn syrup for sweetness or the consistency?

You're guess is right. I found many recipes, all by American and Australian cooks, that require vegetable shortening. I guess I can try out lard and see how it works. The corn syrup, I think, is for the consistency. I read online that the best substitute is to use a simple sugar syrup, as you have suggested. I just wanted to make sure before having to settle with substitutes. Thank you for your response though :)

best substitute for corn syrup is liquid glucose. Try hyco (I am not sure if I spelled it correctly) from a confectionery supplies store). I think vegetable shortening is sold as hyco in SL. I am not sure.

You can find vegetable shortening at pettah Supliers at pettah Dam Street store. U can buy Corn Syrup aswell. But i always used Liquid Glucose for Corn Syrup which works best for me.
