Pillsbury makes a line of sugar-free cake mixes and prepared icings. Email them for a carrot cake adaptation.

But you know the whole cakes does NOT have to be sugar free except if you are delivering it to a diabetic convention... If you have to make one tier white or chocolate sugarfree from a mix, then they should be flexible.

Here are some links to baking with splenda:

Susan Reid is an experienced test baker whose judgment I trust.

Thanks BakingIrene. How you heard of stevia? I found this article by Dr. Oz on natural sugars.
