You must keep in mind that this cake is not a super sweet cake with sickly sweet icing. We found that the amount of "icing" was not enough to cover the cake as well as the layers in between (see the photo) and therefore recommend doubling the amount of icing that you make. That being said it turned out quite well even though any sugar/sweetener content has been drastically reduced. A great option for anyone that is on a sugar-restricted diet.

As far as the sugar replacement goes, how much does "half each" equal?? Half of a little package of Sweet 'n Low?
I need to know very soon, I have to make the cake on Friday.

Thank you!
