Cooking for diabetic

My cousin has diabetes and her birthday is soon so I want to make her a cake but I need suggestion what to use instead of sugar and what's relation with that and sugar (for example if in cake goes 1 cup of sugar do i put half of cup of stevia or fructose) Also I'd appreciate if you'd share your recipes for cake diabetic friendly :)

Stevia is going to have a cooling effect when you eat the cake. I would recommend trying xylitol instead. Also, you may want to find out how strict she is on her diet because the flour in the cake is going to raise her blood sugar significantly as well. There are quite a few low carb cake recipes online you could try.
