Diabetic filled cupcakes and filling for other cupcakes?

I need to make some diabetic filled cupcakes for a Christmas party. I also need to make regular cupcakes with different fillings. Does anyone have some good receipies for these? I have tried to google the diabetic cupcakes and fillings that we can use? Also, any ideas for a good filling for the other cupcakes?

Do you grind the diabetics up first or chop them into small pieces?

Sorry, couldn't resist.

How about sugar-free jam? Whipped cream with vanilla sweetened with splenda? Sugar-free puddings or mousses?

I'm glad I wasn't the only one thinking that!

I make a carb free cheesecake you could adapt. Just follow the instructions on the back of a box or knox gelatin and substitute sweetner for sugar. (No crust.). That might make a good fillijg inside a cupcake.

Here's something I use as pie filling - it would be very good piped into cupcakes:

6oz cream cheese, softened
3 Tablespoons Splenda
1 1/2 Tablespoons milk or heavy cream
1/2 container of sugar-free Cool Whip, thawed

Cream together cheese, Splenda, and milk. Fold in Cool Whip. Refrigerate until firm.

You could use the Pillsbury SF Devil's Food cake mix and make cupcakes with it. Just keep in mind that even though it says sugar-free, it can still be high-carb and may affect a diabetic's blood sugar, so if you decide to use the cake mix, you should let them know so they can prepare for the amount of carbs.

From the Pillsbury website for the cake mix:

Quote:
Serv Size 1/12 package (38g mix)
Servings Per Container 12
Calories 120
Calories from Fat 30
Total Fat 3.5g
Saturated Fat 1.5g

Cholesterol 0mg
Sodium 260mg
Total Carbohydrate 28g
Dietary Fiber 2g
Sugars 0g
SugarAlcohol 14g
Protein 2g
Calcium 4%

The sugar alcohols can give you less-than-desirable stomach issues, also.

Is the cupcakes portion low carb? Carbs turn to sugar. If the cupcakes aren't low carb then I am not sure what you put in the middle matters as much since they are still getting sugar in a different form. Sorry, just a little thing I get frustrated with. I see so many diabetics eat lots of pasta and bread, then want a sugar free dessert My nutritionist said don't even buy the sugar free stuff since it typically still has the same carbs in it that will turn to sugar. Sugar alcohols also act differently for some people.

BCDisneyFanatic LOL. Now that I read it you are right. That would have been hard to resist.
I have never made cupcakes or fillings for someone who is diabetic. I can do wheat free, gluten free and milk free but not this. My son & I are making cupcakes for the people at his work for a Christmas party. There are 2 guys who are diabetic and we wanted to be able to give them something because my son is the only one bringing dessert. Everytime I try to google receipies it takes me to places where I can buy books. I don't want any books just a receipy.

Do you know for a fact that both diabetics follow strict diabetic diets? It would stink to find out that you went through all the effort to make something specific for them to only find out they would just eat the normal cupcakes.

As a long standing diabetic I wouldn't be making special cupcakes for them. If they wish to have a dessert they can by adjusting their carbs. If I want a dessert I will not have the carb filled sides. Perhaps leave a cupcake or 2 minus any icing. In a pinch I just remove the icing myself with a knife.

My DD's Dr said if you are going to eat it, then eat the real thing, just count for it. It usually takes less of the "real thing" to satisfy you. Now she does use artificial sweetener, but only in drinks that have no carbs such as tea and coffee.

My Dr has never cautioned against the use of aritificial sweetener, and in fact tell her to go ahead and enjoy it. NO problems.

I'm a diabetic and there is just no such thing as a diabetic cupcake. You could make the tiny size cupcakes that a diabetic could eat IFthey chose to. There is no such thing as food for diabetics. A diabetic learns to eat regular food healthfully. They can have a cupcake or half a cupcake or no cupcake at all depending on what other carbohydrates they have had that day or the day before. It's all about balance. Small cupcakes, and good ones would make a diabetic happy. Most doctors have cautioned against over use of artificial sweeteners, especially to diabetics. A cupcake with less sugar-angelfood or carrot cake-would also be easier to eat for a diabetic.
