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!!!

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.
