Cut and serve!
If you don't have a bundt pan, use a 6-7 inch cake pan that will fit in your Instant Pot. You won't get the ridges of the bundt cake but this will not impact the flavor at all.You can store this in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days covered. Don't leave it on the counter as the frosting as cream cheese and needs to be refrigerated. Freezing: Make the cake as above and after it has cooled, place it on a sheet pan for 8-12 hours to freeze. Remove from the freezer and then double wrap it up really well with Press and Seal and then a good layer of quality foil. If you wrap it well, it can keep for 4-6 weeks, no problem. Take the cake out of the freezer and defrost it in the refrigerator the night before you want to put the icing on. Remove from the refrigerator for 30-40 minutes to bring to room temperature before adding the icing. Serve! You can add a dash of Homemade Lemon Zest to infuse a fresh flavor to your cake or frosting.
