Don't know how it is possible with powdered sugar. You can do a sugar free whipped icing.

This first one looks like it might work. I operate under the CFL and can't sell anything perishable. Since it only calls for 1 tbls of milk, I think it might work with water. Thank you so much!

The recommended sugar alternative in the first recipe, Sugar Twin, contains saccharin which has a metallic aftertaste.

We did several months of R&D in pursuit of a sugar-free BC recipe, but we were unable to find anything we were comfortable selling in terms of taste, texture, and side effects. This is especially true for customers looking for a low-glycemic product, subbing out sugar won't help much if the cake still has flour in it.

I personally don't like Sugar Twin, so I'm planning to try out other products. I've had a LOT of requests just recently for "sugar-free" but I don't know if it's strictly a health-related issue or perhaps more of a "I want cake, but I don't want to feel guilty" thing.

There is a sugar free powdered sugar out now.

But just a warning if it contains Malitol or Xylitol too much on an empty stomach may cause laxative effect . one portion consumed after a meal is usually ok.
