    This is still too high in sugar for a diabetic. I reduced the amount of powdered sugar to 3 tablespoons and found it sweet enough with the Splenda.

    This is great! I enjoy that it is lower-calorie but still full-flavored! I made it as written but without the maple flavoring. It has a nice texture, a little thick, but I like it like that... and I didn't have any problems with it coming off of the cupcakes. Thank you!

    I made powdered splenda by mixing splenda granular with cornstarch. I also only used 1/4 cup powdered sugar. Adding that small amount REALLY stops the funny after taste or bitterness you can get from Splenda. It makes ALL the difference! I did have a problem with the frosting pulling away from my spice cake after it was refrigerated...it would come off the top in one whole piece. For what it is, lower calorie and VERY low sugar, it is fabulous. Thanks for posting!

    This was SOOOOO good! Didn't use powdered sugar and couldn't tell a bit of difference. Added cocoa and more Splenda on a SF Chocolate Mocha Cake and it was to die for!

    I made this for a diabetic so I tweaked it a bit. I only used 3 tablespoons of powdered sugar. It was still a bit thick so I added a tablespoon of half and half. I also omitted the maple syrup. It turned out perfect!


I don't think there's anything better than spending time with family and friends and enjoying delicious food together. I just love food. I love reading about food, writing about food, cooking food and.. not surprisingly, eating food. My latest passion is food-photography! I'm still learning a lot, but I'm trying to post photos with all my recipes and reviews. I read recipe books, magazines and food blogs like novels. I get such satisfaction when someone enjoys a meal or dessert that I have prepared. It is the biggest compliment to me when my family and friends rave about my cooking. There are so many terrific recipes on this site. If I'm looking for something, I'm sure to find it here. I do have stacks of my own favorite recipes which I am slowly but surely getting in my cookbooks here . I have had so many awesome reviews and fabulous photos taken of my recipes... I try to thank everyone personally .. I sincerely appreciate each and every review and or comment left. I know it takes time to photograph and upload photos - So I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for finding and trying my recipes and taking the extra effort...
