"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. "
"I am the lead cake designer ar Cake2you.com which operates in New delhi, india,<br/>I tried this recipe for one y clients and must tell you it is excellent.<br/>she is a diabetic lady but loves food and she loved the cake too.<br/>Thank you for putting in this recipe.<br/><br/>Thanks"
"I'm in need of a good diabetic cake for my father-out-law this nov and after relentlessly searching I do believe I've found the best recipe. I can't wait to try it!"
"I am only giving this four stars because the cakes didn't rise. I made the recipe two times and both times the layers were dense and could not be cut in half. I may have done something wrong (high probability). A friend suggested adding more sugar and less Splenda to help the layers. The flavor was wonderful and I used three layers from the two batches (fourth layer was taste tested). The Absolutely Sugar Free Icing was wonderful!!! I used white chocolate pudding and it was delicious. Everyone loved the cake and I will be making this again!"
"This cake was moist and delicious! I'm always looking for sugar free desert recipes and this one was awsome! Thank you!"
"I did not personally try this. I made this cake, and sent it to work with my husband for a coworker's bday. She is diabetic. He said everyone enjoyed it, and she called me and asked for the recipe, and told me it was really good. So a 5 star rating based on that. I did use the other "Absolutely Sugar Free" icing based on what other reviewers had said."
"I haven't made this cake yet, so I'm not leaving a star rating. However, I did make the icing and used it on a diabetic carrot cake and the icing was excellent! 5 stars for the icing!"
"I'm a diabetic and i cooked this cake for a Church dinner and it was all eaten. Outstanding flavor and moist as well i had to amke copies of the recipe for other people. Thanks Roger"
