    2c. All purpose flour
    2tsp. soda
    1/2tsp. salt
    2tsp. cinnamon
    3 eggs, well beaten
    3/4c. vegetable oil
    3/4c. buttermilk
    2c. sugar
    2tsp. vanilla
    1 (8oz.) can crushed pineapples, drained
    2c. grated carrots
    1 (3 1/2oz.) can flaked coconut
    1c. chopped walnuts

    Combine flour, soda, salt, and cinnamon; set aside. Combine eggs, oil, buttermilk, sugar and vanilla; beat until smooth. Stir in flour mixture, pineapple, carrots, coconut and nuts.

    Pour batter into 2 greased and floured 9 inch round pans. Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

    Immediately pour buttermilk glaze evenly over layers. Cool in pans 15 minutes, remove from pans and let cool completely. Spread orange cream cheese frosting between layers and on top and sides of cake. Store cake in refrigerator.

    1c. sugar
    1/2tsp. soda
    1/2c. buttermilk
    1/2c. butter
    1Tbsp. Light corn syrup
    1tsp. vanilla

    Combine sugar, soda, buttermilk, butter and corn syrup in a dutch oven; bring to boil, cook 4 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Pour over cake layers in pan.

    1/2c. butter, softened
    1 (8oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
    1tsp. vanilla
    2c. sifted powdered sugar
    1tsp. orange juice
    1/2tsp. grated orange peel

    Combine butter and cream cheese, beating until light and fluffy. Add vanilla, powdered sugar, orange juice and orange peel; beat until smooth. (You may need to add more powdered sugar to get the desired consistency for spreading.) Spread on cake.I know it sounds like a good bit of work, but it is SOOOOO good.
