Whip it with some shortening/butter may be? and add corn syrup to maintain the consistency.

would it taste a bit too oily? I wanted to add cream cheese to dull the sweetness a bit but Its going to be expensive buying all those cream cheese...=(

It should not be oily as I always use less icing sugar than the recipe calls for, and never have by buttercream oily. The buttercream might be less crusty though if you are trying to achieve a perfect smoothness or wanted to crust the surface for an impression or any other technique.

sure, you can add salt or any extract/flavour according to your taste.

My sister doesn't like really sweet icing either but I added a lemon extract and she likes it and will eat it. I know that lemon is often substituted for salt in healthy diets.

Just putting in a pitch for the salt. I always salt my ABCs - I feel it helps enhance flavoring, cuts the sweet a bit and adds an interesting flavor contrast.

I add some popcorn salt as well as some non-dairy icing mix (Pastry Pride, Rich's Bettercreme, et. al.) - and it's much lighter and not nearly as sweet.
