This was made sugarless & eggless for my sister's MIL who is a diabetic patient.
Instead of sugar I use Maltitol Powder:
The advantages of matitol includes
- fewer calories,
- does not promote tooth decay and
- a slow absorption which is important for diabetes.
On the day of delivery, we were aimlessly roaming the shopping mall while waiting for the host, that's when some careless soul bumped my carrier. This is what becomes of the cake:
Fortunately I brought along the chocolate frosting in a piping bag which I was able to do some quick patch up.... but no more 完美!
In anycase, it was great to be part of the celebration - THANKS!
