CREAM CHEESE ICING
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan.
In a large bowl, stir together cake mix and pudding mix. Make a well in the center and pour in eggs, water, oil and mashed banana. Beat on low speed until blended. Scrape bowl, and beat 4 minutes on medium speed. Pour batter into prepared pan.
2Bake in a preheated oven for 50 to 55 minutes, or until cake tests done. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.
3Cream Cheese Icing:
In bowl, beat cream cheese with butter until smooth. Beat in vanilla and lemon juice, add in icing sugar, one-third at a time, until smooth (adding more if necessary). Spread over top of cake. (Make-ahead: Cover loosely and refrigerate for up to I day.)
4(a couple tips which you may already know :) I brush the cake top to remove any lose crumbs, and freeze the cake for a good hour as this will be easier to frost the cake without getting crumbs mixed in!)
5Decorate as you wish :)
I used some Nillas and banana slices :) but you can add whatever topping you would like or leave it as is :)
