Cake Mix Too Sweet

TX_Mommy | Apr 24, 2013 10:37 AM

I was in a discount grocery store last week and found box cake mix for 19 cents per box. I stocked up. I used the first box last night and it was WAY too sweet!! (I mean, "headache after only 2 bites" sweet!) No wonder it was on clearance.

Is there anything I can do to lessen the sweetness of the other mixes when I use them? I feel like just adding more flour isn't I wrong?
