Honey Bun cake...Kevinpa??

This was posted in the PG and just sounds so incredibly good.
Is there ANY way possible to low carb this?
I can pretty much figure out the swirl mixture and glaze....but what would I sub for the box of yellow cake mix?

Honey Bun Cake

1 box yellow cake mix
4 eggs
3/4 c. oil
1 c. sour cream

Swirl mixture
1 c. brown sugar
2 T cinnamon
1 c. powdered sugar
2 T. milk
1 t. vanilla

Mix cake ingredients together. In another bowl, mix swirl ingredients. Pour half of the batter in a pan. Swirl 3/4 of the swirl mixture through. Top with remaining batter and swirl mixture. Bake @ 325 for 35-40 min. While cake is warm, glaze top of cake.
BEWARE! My wings are broken, so I'm riding the broomstick!

I don't suffer from insanity; I enjoy every minute of it.

Derived from the "Let Them Eat Chocolate Cake" thread.

Let Them Eat Chocolate Cake with Whipped Cream Frosting

Here is my yellow cake in a bag version.

1 cup Carbquik
1 cup wheat protein isolate 5000
1/8 cup resistant wheat starch 75
3 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
2 T. granular erythritol
2 T. Diabeti Sweet Brown Sugar
1 splenda quick pack(1 cup equivilent)
1 T. not/Sugar
6 T. shortening
1 cup calorie countdown 2% milk
2 t. vanilla extract
3 eggs

Mix all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl until well incorporated.
In electric mixing bowl with wire whisk, mix shortening, milk, and vanilla until combined.
Add eggs 1 at a time until well incorporated then mix in dry ingredients until batter is smooth.
Pour batter into a greased 7 x 10 inch cake pan or dish.
Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 30 min or until golden and a toothpick comes out clean
Let Cool.

Couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this heading. This cake (the original version) is one of my families favorites. I think I make it a couple times a month for the kids and for work. Everyone loves it. I got the original recipe off of the All Recipes web site. I never even thought about being able to do a low carb version DH and I could eat. Thanks for the suggestions
