I did a little research on Splenda a while back. They say you can use your regular recipe and use the same qty of Splenda as sugar. Be aware though, that reg sugar acts as a preservative and Splenda does not. Splenda recommends consuming the cake with in 24 hrs. Otherwise use it as you would sugar. I have not tried it yet but I will soon. Don't know hoe it will cooperate in icing yet! If you want further info you can go to the Splenda website, it's very informative thumbs_up.gif

Hope this helps!!

I once had an order for a diabetic cake and I used Splenda. It was very difficult. I ended up not even charging the customer because the texture just didn't sit right with me. It's better with a sugar blend. I made many using various recipes. The batter was doughy and sticky and when I baked it, it wouldn't form to the pan. If you do have success, I would love for you to share your recipe. It was a big challenge for me. It was also better to bake in a very small batch. Good Luck!
