    I just found the vanilla cake mix at my local Wegmans! Can't wait to try it in this recipe. I'm wondering if the cake tastes good enough on it's own without the topping?

    • Swerve

      Hi Debbie, we're glad you found the bake mixes! They're delicious on their own ;)

    I’m trying to figure out how you come up with your net carbs. I subtract the fiber from the full carbs. But even if you subtract the Protein, it didn’t come up with the number in your net carb total . For your vanilla cake it had three net carbs. With the original carbs at 16. Can you explain that to me I’m sorry if I’m retarded LOL

    • Swerve

      Hi Mishelle! It's a great question! Because fiber and sugar alcohols, like erythritol, the main ingredient in Swerve, do not affect blood sugar in the same way that regular (impact) carbs do, you can subtract all or some of them from the total carb count in a serving of food. So, you're were right to subtract the fiber and you subtract the Swerve. Check out this Ultimate Guide to Net Carbs https://swervesweet.com/blog/the-ultimate-guide-to-net-carbs
