VW Cake

Sift together 3 times.
Cream butter thoroughly, add sugar gradually, and cream together until light and fluffy.
Add egg yolks and beat well.
Add flour alternately with milk, a small amount at a time, beating after each addition.
Add vanilla and 1 cup coconut.
Fold in egg whites quickly and thoroughly.

Bake in 3 greased and floured 9" cake pans.
Then cut each end and round the ends to look like a Volkswagon car.

Lemon Coconut Frosting
In a small saucepan, mix sugar,cornstarch and salt.
Slowly add water and cook until thickened.

I baked the cake in bread pans and then stacked them on top of each other, with frosting in between.
