Type 1 Diabetic?!
Question: I am a type 1 Diabetic, and getting married in May. What are some ideas on being able to have a wedding cake! We want to cake to be good for everyone else, meaning we don't want the entire cake to be sugar free. I have a lot of problems with my blood sugar, and really cant have that much sugar. We really can not afford two different cakes. Any thoughts???

I would make a regular cake. But you can only have a thin slice and not the corner one!!! Why are you having problems keeping your sugar down? Are you eating the wrong foods or is you medications not working for you? If this is the case you should talk to your doctor and get on something that will controll it!!Do you use insulin? I was put on insulin 6 mos ago because the pills i was taking were not doing the job! I now have it under control. I am a type 2. Good luck, and hope you stay happy!! Biff.
just have them make the top layer of your cake sugar free and the rest regular.
It is YOUR wedding. To hell with everyone else and make it sugar-free. It's your wedding and it doesn't happen everyday.
the wedding cake will only increase your sugar level it is better not to take it for the good of yourself.read more at http://yourhealthdoctor.blogspot.com/200...
Just have a regular cake, just take a small bite. Chances are you are going to be so full of adrenaline and running around so much on your wedding day that you are going to need that cake to keep your sugars up.
I'm a type one diabetic as well and was married this past December. I guess I'm on a different regime then you are, because I was (and am) able to have a bite of our non-sugar free cake. Have you thought about talking to your doctor about setting up an insulin treatment plan that allows you a little more freedom with what you can eat?
As far as the cake goes, if you're worried about the guest go with a sugar free top piece and a non-sugar free main piece. If your wedding is any thing like mine then you'll only have time for one bite of the cake anyhow! And the guests are always served from the bottom most layer (or the biggest portion) of the cake. Sometimes people will do a small fancy cake, but will then have a larger sheet cake (which is similar to the smaller cake in flavor) that will be cut up and served to the guest - it's a bit cheaper that way!
Good luck and congratulations!
Similar to what someone else said, I think you are going to be very active that day with the running around, dancing, and general nervous energy. I don't think sugar in the cake is going to be a major issue for you.
Well, Splenda cakes are now very popular, but you could just have the top layer made sugar free. 1 piece of cake won't kill your most likely if you are well controlled.
You dont have to eat any cake.Im diabetic too and that would be the least of my worries if I was getting married.
You can eat a small piece of the wedding cake without the icing. The icing is very bad for us type 1 diabetics. You can safely eat an inch square of plain cake and it should not affect your sugar level. Stay away from the icing.
