My "bad luck" Titans cake :o(

Our Titans went to the playoffs and I wanted to make a "good luck" cake for the game. I promise my intentions were good, even though the game didn't go so hot. So I guess maybe my cake wasn't full of luck like I thought. It's really a shame about our Titans, but at least my belly was full of this tasty Banana Sour Cream Cake! I found this recipe on Bunny's Warm Oven and knew I had some banana's that were itching to be put into something!! I loved how moist the cake turned out and the icing had just the perfect amount of sweetness for the cake. I read a lot of reviews on this cake about people thinking the icing may have been to sour, from the sour cream, but I loved it!! I actually took this cake to a Titan's party and it was all the rage! Everyone kept talking about how moist it was and how yummy the icing was!! So it may have let down our Titan's, but I promise the cake won't let you down!
Banana Sour Cream Cake with Cream Cheese Sour Cream Icing
whew that's a mouth full!
(recipe from Bunny's Warm Oven originally found here)
2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/4 cups sour cream
1 1/3 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 3 large)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, room temperature
Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly butter and flour 13 x 9 x 2-inch metal baking pan. (I used a bundt pan instead)
In medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Using electric mixer, beat butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar in large bowl until blended. Add eggs and beat until fluffy. Mix in 3/4 cup sour cream, bananas and lemon juice. Add dry ingredients to banana mixture and beat until well blended. Transfer batter to prepared pan.
Bake cake until top is golden and tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. (Mine actually took closer to 40-45 minutes, but I also used a bundt pan so that may have been why) Cool completely on rack.
Beat remaining 1/2 cup sour cream, powdered sugar and cream cheese in large bowl until well blended. Spread frosting over cooled cake.
