Diabetic Birthday Cake Recipes - Ideas to Consider

Are you looking for some interesting diabetic birthday cake recipes?

Having a cake on your birthday is a time honored tradition across the world, so being a diabetic should not stop you from blowing your candles out while everyone is singing happy birthday.

What you need to remember is that the frosting has high sugar content, so find a replacement for the frosting, then add some fruit into the cake mixture and replace the sugar with artificial sweetener.

Here are two recipes for frosting without sugar, which you can use as part of diabetic birthday cake recipes.


Blend the following ingredients in a food processor for a couple of minutes (or until smooth and creamy):

  • 1 cup raw any type of nuts
  • 1-2 tablespoon brown rice syrup or artificial sweetener (available at most health stores)
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest (optional; orange zest is another option)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup apple juice or orange juice or water (or sufficient to reach desired consistency)
  • Remember that the mixture will thicken as it sits


Here is another frosting recipe which you could use as part of diabetic birthday cake recipes.

  • 1/2 cup low fat cottage cheese or cream cheese, sieved
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt (preferably sea salt)
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter, melted (organic is ideal)
  • replacement sweetener equivalent to 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon almond, vanilla or caramel extract

Method / steps

Mix all ingredients together and then beat until smooth. Use a spatula or icing knife to spread the frosting over the cake. This recipe frosts one 10 inch cake

Now try these very easy to mix diabetic birthday cake recipes and then add the frosting.


  • 1/2 cup cream (double thick or long life)

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2 cup cake flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda or baking powder

  • 1 cup dates, cut fine (soften the dates in hot water and a 1/2 teaspoon bicarb)
  • 1 1/2 cup unsweetened apple juice
  • 1 cup nuts

Method / steps

Cream the cream and slowly add egg, sweetener and vanilla. Mix until smooth then add sifted flour, baking soda, cloves and cinnamon. Gently stir in the dates, apple juice and nuts. Bake in round or loaf pans for 1 hour at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
