Directions:
In large pot (if not big enough, will have a mess) mix sugar and whipping cream and vanilla. Stir constantly until soft ball stage on candy thermometer. Fannie Bell didn't have a thermometer, but she stirred until a drop put in cold water formed a soft ball. Take off of heat and add a package of frozen coconut (she said that was easier than cooking and grating the coconut herself). Beat the icing with a wooden spoon until thick or until your arm falls off. She made the cake just from a white cake mix, but she divided it into 3 thin layers instead of 2. She put a little icing in the middle of the plate, added the first layer, icing, another layer, icing, top layer and the rest of the icing on the top and down the sides.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
The icing weighed a ton. She put toothpicks in the cake to hold it up. Ty and Mike loved to take the toothpicks out of the cake and suck all the icing off---thus the name---toothpick cake.
