I made buttercream frosting today and while the texture is great and the recipe seems to have worked perfectly, I find it really, really sweet and really, really buttery - almost tasting just like very sugary whipped butter. Any fixes? We added a bunch of ricotta (a modification suggested by the recipe we were using based on the cake base) and some vanilla, which helped a bit, but it's still not perfect.
