Q: I'm planning a baby shower for a colleague who has gestational diabetes and is on a strict sugar-free diet. My challenge is providing desserts that the guest-of-honor and guests will want to eat, besides a fruit bowl. Any ideas for simple, crowd-pleasing, sugar-free desserts?

Editor: One thing you might do is ask the mother-to-be for a list of ingredients that are ok for her to eat and whether she has a favorite dessert she'd like at the party. Here are some other places to glean ideas:
