Ok, first:

A bride is marrying her groom who is a diabetic. He wants a Red Velvet cake that is sugar free, and I can't find a recipe anywhere!

Second:

This mom would like me to make a standing up Dora cake. The only way I can figure out how to do it is to have the Dora sitting on a sheet cake, and make Dora out of rice crispy treats using white pipes as support...am I getting in above my head here?

Thanks for the advice!

I would search for a regular yellow sugar free cake recipe then turn it into red velvet with the addition of cocoa powder and red food color.

I've seen some standing Sponge Bob Square Pants cakes on this site - see link below. Maybe you can pm the decorator for more info.

Most doctors tell diabetics that they need to watch the carbs more than anything............just a smaller piece of cake would be the answer I would think..........I really do not think there is a sugar free cake.............if it has carbohydrated, then it has sugar.....carbs are eventually broken down in the body to glucose(sugar). Maybe she should talk to the doctor before she orders a cake. Hope this helps.
