Yes. They use pudding or whipped topping.

I found this a while ago and I really like it. This is the recipe I use for myself (diabetic) and my sugars don't go crazy!

LOW-CARB CHOCOLATE BUTTERCREAM FROSTING

2 oz Ghiradelli unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
1/3 c heavy whipping cream
1/2 c unsalted butter, softened
4 tbs granulated splenda (6 packets)
1 tsp Ghiradelli unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
a couple of drops of chocolate flavor lorann oil, to taste. Or you can use 1/2 - 1 tsp of chocolate extract, to taste.

Melt the chocolate over low heat and then pour into a mixer bowl, let cool. Slowly whisk the cream into the cooled melted chocolate. Mix on medium speed, slowly add the butter, splenda, cocoa powder, chocolate oil and vanilla extract to the chocolate mixture. Beat until smooth and fluffy.
