      Hi Karen,
      Thanks for catching that. Originally I posted it with Agave Nectar, but then found that raw honey or coconut nectar worked better. Since both the cake and the frosting contain dates, which are sweet, you could definitely take out the additional sweetener or try it with some stevia. Enjoy!
