  4. Pour the cake batter into the prepared baking form and bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

  5. Cool for 5 minutes in the pan, then remove and cool completely on a cooling rack.

For the Frosting:

  2. Combine all frosting ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed.
