Yes, sounds like way too much. I find a lot of older recipes (assuming this one was from perhaps the 1970's) use WAY more things like sugar/butter/salt then are now considered necessary as part of a healthier diet. I typically cut sugar by 1/3 to 1/2 in older recipes and have never had problems.

I agree, that is a lot of sugar. Cake mixes tend to be on the sweet side and you also have a sweet cream cheese frosting on this cake. I would cut back on the sugar.
