Its not the sugar that makes it bad for a diabetic, the flour (carbs)  is much worse. Im diabetic myself and a large piece of cake with sugar and whole wheat flour and some fibre like a carrot cake is better for my sugar levels than a small piece with normal cake flour.

 

If you really want to do a diabetic friendly cake look for recipes with healthy flours

I'm not sure how well it works for baking, but my mother is a diabetic.  I get Stavia for her from the store and she says it's not bad at all.  She doesn't like Splenda.
