Thought maybe they'd seen the light but they're still using carby flour/polenta for all their recipes, wouldn't be any use for me unfortunately.

The chocolate, almond and berry cake looks similar to the cake I make but mine does not have flour or cornflour in it and I use full fat yoghurt and full fat cream cheese. 

A cake such as this with cream cheese filling would need to be kept in the fridge and would take up a lot of room, so when I make a large cake like this, I have one piece and then cut the rest into portions and put them in the freezer.  A portion only takes an hour or so to defrost.
Diabetes Type2 diagnosed March 2014.  Treated by diet only.  HbA1c 60 on diagnosis, 52 in June 2014, 50 October 2014, 44 December 2014, 48 May 2015, 50 Sep 2015, 53 Jan 2016, 50 Oct 2016, 56 Feb 2017, 50 Jun 2017. 50 Aug 2017.  Pacemaker fitted 2008.

When I get old I don't want people thinking
                      "What a sweet little old lady"........
                             I want 'em saying
                    "Oh Crap! Whats she up to now ?"

I totally agree, the recipes could be lower carb with a bit of ingenuity and I wouldn't be cooking any of em.  I only commented as they were miles better than the recipes that they used to post e.g. the "Cherry pavlova" at 50odd g carbs they were peddling a year or so ago.

I did this with some cake I made last weekend for my birthday and for work. I cut the remainder into small individual portions and wrapped in cling film and froze. I'd never tried making cake before as for one person living alone it's too much cake. But I'd also never tried freezing it. I took a slice out and ate it a few hours later and it was perfectly fine and defrosted.

A dangerous discovery for someone on a diet though, learning you can freeze then defrost cake!!

Some of the recipes actually aren't that bad carb wise...

I suppose if they post enough recipes eventually some will be OK for carbs. It is a bit like the story about a million monkeys hitting the keys of a million typewriters; eventually one will type a page of a great novel. Or a low-carb recipe :)
