I haven't heard of one, but would be interested if there was one out there!

There is a "Sugar-Free Frosting" recipe here at CC in the recipe list. If you do a search for it, I'm sure you will find it easily. It isn't buttercream, more like cream cheese icing, and it sounds good, but I haven't tried it. Janice

I do have another recipe that does use Splenda:

1/2 c light butter, softened
1 c Splenda Granular
1 lb fat free cream cheese
1 tsp vanilla extract

Beat softened butter and Splenda briefly in a med. size bowl (until Splenda is just incorporated). Add cream cheese. Mix until lump free (about 1 min.) Scrape sides of bowl and add vanilla. Mix

The also say to make Splenda powdered sugar:
3/4 cup Splenda Granular
1 tbsp cornstarch

Place ingredients in blendar jar. Cover and blend until splenda Granular is a very fine powder.
Use instead of powdered sugar for garnishing cakes and pastries.

I'm pretty sure these came from the Splenda website. Janice
