Hi :-)
My best friend is a diabetic. Her birthday is coming up and I would love to throw her a mini party. The problem is she loooves sweets nono
She has been in the ICU 3 times with DKA, but is slowly trying to get her sugars back under control.
I'm actually quite proud of her, we're both dieting and her sugars are staying close to 200----they stayed around 500 or higher when out of control.
What do you suggest as food that I can serve at her small dinner party?
Oh, and she loves cake, too.
She asked me for a yellow cake, I think one of the grocery stores around here makes sugar free cakes, so that shouldn't be a problem. If they don't we'll be in big trouble! lol
Is there such a thing as a diabetic friendly cake recipe? confused
Anyway, thank you for all of your ideas smurf

Hi Toodles

My mum is a diabetic (type 2)

Mum has to watch not only the sugar, which she has Artificial Sweeteners, but also the amount of food intake.

There are lots of yummy diabetic recipes.

I'd like to suggest a nice barbarque with a salad.

I have a recipe for a Diabetic Sponge Cake, Hope she will like it :)

7 eggs
1/2 cup fruit juice, orange
3 tbsp Sweet 'n Low or any sugar substitute
2 tbsp lemon juice
3/4 tsp cream of tartar
1 1/2 cup sifted cake flour
1/4 tsp salt

Separate eggs. Beat egg whites with salt until foamy. Add cream of tartar and continue beating until stiff. In another bowl, combine rest of
ingredients and mix well. Fold in beaten egg whites. Bake in greased and floured bundt pan at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or longer; test with toothpick. Serve with no sugar jelly (all fruit) and Cool Whip.

Angel food cake and cool whip for frosting. YUM!
Don't bother with store bought "sugar free" cakes. they are still very high in carbs.
