    I was wondering if you have some diabetic cake recipes laying around,this cake sounds and looks so delicious. I believe my family would love this cake. I love cakes so much but I would go into a diabetic coma if I ate one slice. Just wondering.
    Love your website. remind me so much of home.

    1. Kay, could you use splenda instead of the sugar? Not sure how to replace all the juice except to use water flavored with orange extract. I am diabetic to and would have to avoid this. But man does it look so good.
