Frosted with the most delicious, rich Cream Cheese Frosting!


A delicious cake with the flavors of a cinnamon roll and a rich cream cheese frosting (which I doubled), but so much easier to make and low-carb!  This cake barely lasted 24 hours in our house!  If you decide not to double the frosting, you can put the frosting in a plastic bag, cut off one corner and drizzle substantial stripes across the top or simply spread a thinner layer over the top, although I think the former idea looks prettier.  I chose the thick frosting option and spread it over the entire cake.  I didn’t put on weight eating this dessert either.  It adds negligible carbs, but the calories do increase, so I wrote the recipe with the more conservative amount of frosting.  The gelatin that I use in baking (to bind all the components of the low-carb bake mix, however, most of the time gelatin is not even necessary) is wonderful for our skin, hair and nails.  Studies show that if gelatin is consumed regularly skin damage by the sun is minimal.

The sweetener tables for all the most common scenarios are in my cookbooks for your convenience.  For example, ¾ cup sugar sweetness (not ¾ cup liquid) using my bottle of sucralose from the EZ-Sweetz brand (whether the smaller one of 0.5 oz or the bigger yellow bottle of 2 oz – Zero carbs) would be 18 or 36 drops respectively.  Here is an article and video about the sweeteners. Part 1.  There is another article and video here: Part 2.
