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 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:

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.

TigerCat first are they type 1 or Type 2. Most Type 1's that I know usually don't eat what is referred to as a "diabetic diet" as their pancreas doesn't work at all so it doesn't matter if it's an apple or a cupcake they still have to take insulin.

And if it is Type 1 they just will guess at the carbs in a cupcake and bolus of the insulin.

Not all Type 2's are on insulin some do control their diabetes with diet. But like someone else pointed out the cake part still has carbs so they might be skipping the cupcake all together.

It's a nice gesture but unless they requested that something special be made I would just serve what ever I'm serving everyone else.

I think I might make some mini regular cupcakes vs worrying about specific "diabetic" cupcakes. DH's diabetic friend has repeatedly said he'd rather have a little nibble of a real sweet (based on how his sugars are going) than a full sized ill tasting "diabetic" one.

As said, a cupcake by it's very nature isn't diabetic friendly. Even with lower sugar, the "cake" part is full carbs which is also an issue.

The little ones would also be better for folks who are dieting for other reasons if they want jus ta little something.

Most "sugar free" things bother me more than eating carbs. I just watch what I am eating and if I want a cupcake, I cut down somewhere else. My doctor just told me this morning that whatever I am doing works well. She said I was a text book case for managing diabetes.

I will ask my son how strict they are with their diet. Since it is all men there they will have mentioned it before about being diabetic (it is a workshop area and not talkative guys) so they must do something.

The sugarfree products tend to have just as many carbohydrates, and perhaps more, than the table sugar products. If not, then they tend to have extra fat. Some of the sugar substitutes are sugar alcohols, which can have a laxative effect. None of those things are good for any of us, diabetic or non-diabetic.

A diabetic diet is a healthy diet. I'm Type 2, and I've learned what causes unhealthy spikes in my blood glucose and how to stay on a pretty even keel.

Whoever mentioned mini-cupcakes, that's the best idea. Otherwise, regular-sized cupcakes and a normal amount of frosting. Hopefully included with the meal there will be fruit, veggies, cheese, and/or nuts, so the partygoers can choose what works best for them.

I make these as my go to cupcake recipe. No one can tell that they are diabetes friendly and everyone loves them. http://www.diabetesselfmanagement.co...late_cupcakes/

When I fill them I just use a sugar free jam and top with a diabetes friendly ganache.

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.
