I am making a cake for Friday and the email I recieved from the customer today says:
"I just dont want the cake and especially the icing to be too sweet. I dont really care for the traditional butter gucky icing."

Ok, I have no idea what to do now because I am sure she is referring to buttercream!! Any suggesions would be very much appreciated! Thanks in advance!!

buttercream is sweet. now maybe if the customer had said right off, i want to try some different icings to see what i like, id work with that. but two days notice no chance am i messing about, for no extra money.

unfortunately for this eejit, cake and icing are natuarlly sweet. otherwise they should order a pork pie. are you just supposed to guess which icing she will like?

its tempting to say 'sorry, cake and icing are sweet, so i cant really change that. do you want your order or not?' hopefully with a nonrefundable deposit incase they say not.

to add: i believe that adding some popcorn salt, i think just like superfine salt, can help to cut the sweetness.
