THE CAKE IS ACTUALLY FOR HER 3 YEAR OLD!!!!!
Obviously I didn't read your post thoroughly the first time.
But here's my comment:
I don't know that sugar substitutes are appropriate for such a young child. (I know I wouldn't feed that to my grandkids.)
(A reduced sugar recipe would be one that uses less sugar or other natural sweeteners, not one that is artificially sweetened.)
Rather than making an artificially sweetened cake........
Why not make a healthy smash cake for the toddler and your normal WASC for the guests. (After all cake isn't the main course, and the portions served need only be 1-1/2x2x4.)
Or everyone can have healthy cake.
Here's a link to healthy and healthy children's cakes:
I would definitely check with the customer to see if artificial sweetener is what she had in mind.....
