White cake layered with strawberries and Apricot preserves. I searched the internet for a cake that I could make as a special treat (birthday) for a good friend that is diabetic. He thought it was wonderful and was quite flattered that I took the time to make it. This is not difficult to make, but there are alot of steps to it. I am not "used to" the taste of the fat free cream cheese, and quite honestly, do not like the frosting. UPDATE: My daughter used this cake recipe and "Absolutely Sugar Free" Frosting (Absolutely Sugar Free Frosting) to do a wedding cake - Awesome together!!! Much better than the cream cheese frosting listed with the recipe!

I made this a few years ago for my diabetic mother's birthday. I wish I took a picture b/c it came out so beautiful. It was good. But the five star rating is b/c of how well it tasted with the "absolutely sugar free" frosting you suggested pairing up with this cake. I used the extra frosting to dip my strawberries in. Very yummy. I usually get the worst aftertaste with sugar free items, but the frosting didn't give me that yucky aftertaste. Thank you for bringing a smile to my mothers face on her birthday. Will make again :)

I made this cake for my cousin and it was great!!! I did use the "Absolutely Sugar Free" Frosting (using White Chocolate pudding mix) which was a very good frosting! I could barely tell that it was (essentially) sugar free! We even had a taste test with a bakery sugar free cake and this cake won! I did make a few minor changes--I used sugar free apricot preserves and I also used frozen strawberries (stronger flavor). Next time I will slice the strawberries thicker. I will also use 8 in. instead of 9 in. cake pans for a little more height to make it easier to cut the cakes in half!

Wonderful flavor and texture. I took this cake to a church potluck recently because several members are diabetics. WOW! you should of heard what everyone was saying about it. I was asked for the recipe many times. I took the few remaining pieces to my Father In Law who is also a diabetic and his only complaint was the cream cheese frosting (he doesn't know what is good anyway.) I made it in a 9 x 13 cake pan, I have a cake slicer to divide it in half. I recommend this cake to everyone.
