Crisco Shortening vs. Vegetable Oil

I suddenly was told I was making THE birthday cake for a 3 year old tomorrow, so shame on me - I bought a box cake mix. The mix calls for vegetable oil, however, I do not have any on hand. Can I substitute melted Crisco or should I run to the store?

When baking cakes, what substitutes won't affect taste or texture?
