How much salt does the recipe ask for?
I never add any salt in any of my recipes and it always turns out fine.

I know it sound crazy, but the cake asked for 1/2 tsp of salt which i forgot to add to it.

You now salt balance the sweet, so for me it taste like it is missing this balance.

So any idea for filling or frosting? icon_rolleyes.gif

I'd suggest cream cheese frosting?

YOu may notice the sweetness of the cake without he salt, but I bet no one else will. 1/2 tsp. Is not much.

May I suggest your mind is playing tricks on you. That little amount of salt will not make that much of a difference to most people. It is only because *you know* thesalt is missing that you think it is too sweet. The nature of cake is to be sweet. I'm sure most people will not notice or complain.
