Time for the cream cheese brown butter icing!  Pour your hot browned butter over softened cream cheese and whisk like crazy.  This will take a couple minutes to get smooth, don’t worry :)  Just keep whisking.

The icing should still drizzle over your warm cake like so.  Spread it evenly with an offset spatula and let cool.
