Pour into ungreased bundt pan and bake at 350 for 50 to 60 minutes.  Let cool and then remove from pan. wrap cake for up to 3 days with plastic wrap.

To make frosting, mix powdered sugar, melted butter, vanilla and cream with electric mixer until smooth.  Gently spread frosting on the top of the cake.  I usually frost on the day I am serving because it is easier to wrap the unfrosted cake.
