3 C. cake flour; sifted
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 C. butter; or shortening
1 3/4 C. sugar
5 egg whites; unbeaten
1 C. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Boiled Frosting:
1 1/2 C. sugar
1/2 tsp. light corn syrup
2/3 C. water; boiling
2 egg whites; stiffly beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
Sift flour once, measure, add baking powder and salt and sift together three times. Cream butter thoroughly, add sugar gradually, and cream together until light and fluffy. Add egg whites, one at a time, beating very thoroughly after each. Add flour, alternately with milk, a small amount at a time, beating after each addition until smooth. Add vanilla. Bake in 2 greased, deep 9 inch layer pans, in a moderate oven at 375 degree for 25 minutes, or until done. Spread Boiled Frosting between layers and on top and sides of cake, making deep swirls in the frosting around the top edge of the cake, but smooth frosting in the center. Sprinkle tiny colored candies in swirls of frosting around edge of cake. Sprinkle with coconut while frosting is still soft. Boiled Frosting: Combine sugar, corn syrup, and water. Bring quickly to a boil, stirring only until sugar is dissolved. Boil rapidly, without stirring, until small amount of syrup forms a soft ball in cold water, or spins a long thread when dropped from tip of spoon (240 degree). Pour syrup in fine stream over egg whites, beating constantly. Add vanilla. Continue beating with rotary egg beater for 10 to 15 minutes, or until frosting is cool and of right consistency to spread. Use wooden spoon when too stiff for beater.
