How to make cake mix less sweet?

sewhay | | Apr 4, 2008 06:22 AM

Hello. i'm new to this site. I was wondering how i can make cake mix less sweet. I've made some frosting and feel that it's way too sweet and i wanted to just bake cupcakes from a box but those are always way too sweet. I was thinking of adding 1 cup of flour but what else (and how much) do i add so that it doesn't come hard too dense due to the extra flour? thanks for any suggestions!
