Allow it cool for about 10 minutes before inverting onto a cooling rack or plate. I generally put some tinfoil onto a cookie sheet and invert my cake onto that.

To Make Frosting:

In a medium bowl, combine butter, cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Add in the walnuts, if desired. Frost your cake!
