Serve this fun cake with your next southwestern recipe to round out your themed meal...
It's "Diabetic-Friendly" so you can have your cake and eat it too!

This recipe came from a "Keep it Simple" Diabetic Cookbook, so...sorry I can't take the credit for it... :(

Made this cake for my Great nephew's 23rd birthday celebration on Sunday. It was a "Hit"! Does not taste "diabetic-friendly" in the least! There was probably 20 people there for lunch ... nobody would have known it was "diabetic-friendly" if I hadn't told them.
