  4. Cool the Cake:
    • Remove the cake from the oven and place it on a wire rack to cool completely in the pan.
  5. Prepare the Frosting:
    • In a separate bowl, beat the softened cream cheese and butter together until smooth and fully combined.
    • Gradually add the confectioner’s sugar, mixing until the frosting is light and fluffy.
    • If desired, add the vanilla extract and mix well.
  6. Frost the Cake:
