1. Mix together the butter, sugar, eggs, flavorings, flour, baking powder and salt slowly. Stir the mixture until smooth after each ingredient is added. Add milk and continue blending the mixture. 2. Pour the batter into 3 greased cake pans. Bake the cake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees F, or until the cake passes the toothpick test. 3.Let the cake cool in the pans for 10 minutes. Pop the cakes onto wire racks to complete the cooling process. Do not ice the cakes before they are completely cool. If the cake's center is even a little bit warm, it will melt the frosting. If you can't wait to frost the cakes, place them in the freezer for about 10 minutes to cool them quickly. 4. Make the orange filling. Mix together all of the ingredients, except for the eggs and orange rind, in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Stir the mixture constantly until it boils for 1 minute. Add the remaining ingredients until the mixture is smooth. Allow the filling to cool. 5.Mix together the divinity frosting. Stir the sugar, cream of tartar, water, egg whites and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Use a mixer to make the frosting creamy. 6.Assemble the cake. Pour the orange filling between the cake layers. Ice the entire cake with divinity frosting and sprinkle the top with coconut.
