Unfortunately, there's nothing you can do to reduce it. If you topped them with a SUPER sweet buttercream it MIGHT cut the salty taste a wee bit, but otherwise, you're stuck.

I agree. Make a caramel buttercream frosting with a lot of sugar. The caramel taste is pretty popular with the salty taste and will combine with the chocolate as well.

I'm with Tara... nothing you can do. Sorry... it helps to write out every reduced amount when cutting a recipe down so there's no math on the fly.

The super sweet topping might help, but only if they are eaten together, but there are bound to be some pieces that have not much icing. I'd start over.

All well and good, but if these are for an order... start over. No other thing to do. If they are just for you then you can play around, but if this is for business, or if you hope to promote your business with these cupcakes, putting out a sub-par product will do you no good.

Yes I agree with Jeanne... my suggestionw as if these were just personal cupcakes... if these are for a customer, you MUST start over!
