I have found a cake recipe that calls for splenda with no regular sugar added. Now I need to find a recipe for buttercream!

I have found a recipe for making powdered sugar with splenda, using granulated splenda and cornsyrup in a blender. Wonder if I could use this in my regular buttercream??

Just remember those recipes make a *very* small amount. When you increase the amount used, the person will have to make major adjustments to their diet.

i just learned a valuable tip in the hardest of ways, so i wanted to give you a heads up...i recently did the diabetic icing with splenda, and while it had a very nice light taste and texture, DO NOT PUT IT UNDER FONDANT!!! the real sugar in the fondant reacts with the splenda and it starts melting...my cake was actually dripping out from under the fondant. i had to totally redo it!!

good luck with your search!

Mixinvixen did you get the recipe for your diabetic icing off of here or from somewhere else?

I would love to have a new recipe...I am a diabetic and always looking for new things I can eat and feel like I am doing bad but really not!

from here.

like i said before, it had a really light taste, and would be great icing a simple cake, but not one that needs any type of fondant or support.

good luck!!
