You are correct, I wonder the same thing. icon_rolleyes.gif
The Splenda web site has recipes...I haven't tried any, yet.

I tried this one this past week and it came out really good. Although, I couldnt find anything called 'brown sugar twin' so I used a brown sugar blend made by splenda. Of course, my friend who it was for was fine with a little bit of sugar, so he said that was fine.

advice in the uk is that generally, you are better off having a small bit of 'real' cake, than a normal chunk of diabetic cake - something to do with carbs rather than sugars being part of the problem... i dont really remember, but do some research and it will probably be explained.

I have used several off the Splenda web site for a family member. Just remember that cakes made with Splenda have a completely different texture than ones with sugar, but any I have tried have been very tasty. I usually frost with a cream cheese, sugar free pudding, sugar free cool whip icing. I too would like a different frosting, but haven't found a sugar free one. Hope this helps a little. icon_smile.gif
