READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by TGirl

Another recipe from my BF's mother. She uses SPlenda instead of regular sugar (she's a diabetic) and I promise you, there was NO difference in taste--you'd never know the sugar was substituted. The icing can also adapted for diabetics-Absolutely moist and delicious!!!

I emailed Splenda about powdered sugar, and they sent me the following: Splenda is great for cooking and baking by replacing granulated sugar. We have had a consumer contact us at our Consumer Center informing us of this conbination: 75% Splenda granular 25% Cornstarch Combine in blender to create a confectioners sugar I have not tried this yet, but will do so using this recipe. Thanks!
