Is that the "mousse" with peanut butter in it? I did a search and that's all that came up?

Pastry Pride is just a whip topping. It is much like the Rich's Betercreme for those who do not have PP in your area. But whenever you are catering to customers with health issues be careful about the ingredients. I always try to keep my sugar, starch and caloric counts as low as possible.

Oh I see. I think I'll stick with the cream cheese icing, as that is what she wants, but she also wants a cake with the basket weave on the sides, and I'm not sure if the cream cheese icing can be decorated with. Since you've tried it do you think I could decorate with it? I'm also thinking of other ways I could at least make the sides "look" like basket weave without actually piping it on....

I have started to buy a product called Z sweet. It's 0 calories, 0 glycemic carbohydrate. The ingredient is erythritol. It is sweet but has a bit of an after taste in some things. It's granulated.
There is also a brand called Whey Low and I think it's 75% less calories than reg. sugar. Is safe to use for type 1 and 2 diabetics (according to their packaging). Whey Low also has a powdered sugar, but I have not tried it. How about making a SMBC and just use a granulated sugar substitute. That way you don't have to buy so many products for just a little block of cake!

If you make your cc frosting thick enough it will hold up and you could make your basket weave. By the way have any of you tried making fondant using the diatetic marshmellow recipe?

I have not but planning on trying it out this week.

Do you just make it thicker with straight Splenda? I haven't used the diabetic marshmallow fondant recipe. I didn't even know there was one!

A little more splenda... Less of any liquid you use.... Little more cream cheese.

I found a recipe for sugar free marshmellow online, because my dm loves chocolate covered marshmellows. Since I buy sugar free chocolate, I tried them and she liked them. They don't have any funny after taste. Not as sweet though. And since we are looking to make a pretty cake, maybe it would work for Fondant.

Hungry Girl has some recipes for low cal, low sugar cakes. I know my diabetic friend loves their red velvet recipe.

Since we're talking about weird stuff...is there a vegetarian/vegan recipe anywhere for fondant? Sis won't go for MMF or MFF because of the gelatin.
I never met a cake I didn't like.

Can you get organic marshmallows?? lol I'm not sure if they exist, because if they do least their gelatin would be from plants... Other than that I'm not sure...
post #26 of 28
OK then...I found vegan and kosher marshmallows. I need to get on closer terms with Yahoo search. LOL.

Oh, and I probably shouldn't have called a diabetic cake 'weird'.

Thanks.

Pretty much they are about the same, recipe that is. But for my group of testers guess I will have to make a couple different ones to see how they turn out.
