Grease two 6x2” cake pans and divide the dough between two cake pans. Cover each cake pan with aluminum foil.
Preheat oven to 350 F, place the cake pans on the middle rack of the oven and bake for half an hour. To check if the cake is done, poke it with a knife and if the knife comes out clean, the cake is ready. Otherwise, keep the cake pans in the oven for 5 more minutes and repeat the test with the knife. Bake the cake until it’s ready, then take cake out of the oven and let it cool completely.
Make the frosting: Combine all the frosting ingredients (cream cheese, heavy cream, Pyure Organic All-Purpose Blend, and clear vanila) in a mixing bowl, then blend them with a mixer until smooth.
Spread the frosting on one cake layer and place the second layer on top. After that, spread the frosting over the top and the sides of the cake. Serve and enjoy!
