That’s great!  I’ve tried boxed sugar free cake before (I have hypoglycemia too, but I’m not as sensitive as your described) and it’s really not bad.  The more difficult thing is to get some sort of sugar free frosting.  Butter cream is basically pure sugar, so you may have to be open to other types of frosting, or just have a bit of the actual cake and skip the frosting all together.  If you are doing fondant though, you can put almost anything underneath it.  So maybe something like a dark chocolate ganache would be pretty low in sugar, and could still go under a white fondant so it wouldn’t look any different than the other tiers…

Good luck!

a relative of mine even found a box cake by pillsbury that was reduced sugar and it was delish! there were even BC red. sugar brownie mixes. she first found it in Florida and did some research to see where to find it in NY but maybe itll be easier for you to find it and check out the actual sugar content. I understand you are senstive but maybe its reduced ENOUGH so that you can still have it 🙂

For sugar free icing, you can always make a cream cheese based frosting. It tastes good, but needs to be refrigerated. Its not a sweet recipe obviously…

2 cups whipping cream
1 box sf pudding mix
16oz cream cheese
3 tbsp splenda

1. Whip the whipping cream until stiff.
2. Cream pudding mix, splenda & softened cream cheese together until smooth.
3. Fold cream cheese mixture into the whipping cream.

Ta-dah!
