  4. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and bake for about 40 minutes or until when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

  6. Once the cake is completely cooled, make the frosting by simply mixing all of the ingredients together until you get a nice thick frosting. If you need to, add a little more water by the teaspoonful to get a spreadable frosting consistency.
  7. Apply the cream cheese frosting and let it set in the refrigerator for a few minutes until the frosting begins to harden. Enjoy!20160503_195420IMG-20160503-WA0017
