  • These are good! I have replaced 1/2 of the sugar with granulated sucralose. I have also successfully substituted sugarfree maple syrup for the honey in the sugarfrosting. - 1/1/16

  • This sounds Yummy But it seems like the frosting is not included all the way in the Nutritional Info. Have you tried any subs to try to get it lower.
