  1. In a bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks and extracts; beat well. Combine flour, baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Add to creamed mixture alternately with milk. Add coconut and orange peel. In a small bowl, beat egg whites with remaining salt until stiff peaks form; gently fold into batter. Pour into three greased 9-in. round baking pans. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean (if wood burning stove is used, start peeking after 25 minutes). Cool in pans for 10 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  2. For icing, combine sugar, egg whites, water and corn syrup in a heavy saucepan or double boiler. With a portable mixer, beat on low for 1 minute. Continue beating on low speed over low heat until frosting reaches 160°, about 8-10 minutes. Pour into a bowl; add vanilla. Beat on high until stiff peaks form, about 7 minutes. Place one cake layer on a serving plate. Spread with frosting and sprinkle with coconut. Repeat. Top with last layer. Frost top and sides of cake; sprinkle with coconut. Yield: 12-16 servings.
