6. Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove it from the pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

7. To make the frosting, beat the cream cheese and butter together until smooth. Gradually add the powdered erythritol and beat until light and fluffy. Stir in the vanilla extract.

8. Spread the frosting on top of the cooled cake.
