Directions:
Cake layers: Cream sugar, butter and Crisco. Add egg yolks one at a time, beating well after each. Dissolve soda in buttermilk. Add flour and milk alternately. Add vanilla. Stir in pecans and coconut. Beat egg whites stiff and fold into cake mixture. Pour into 3 round well greased and floured cake pans. Bake 25 minutes at 350. Test center of cake with toothpick and it should come out clean when done. Place pans on rack to cool completely. (After 10 minutes, I turned them out on cake racks and allowed them to cool completely.)
Frosting: Beat cream cheese and butter until well mixed. Add other ingredients. Place 1/2 cup of frosting between layers and use remaining to frost sides and top.
