1To make cake:
Mix first 4 ingredients together in large bowl. In mixing bowl combine sugars. Beat eggs and add oil. Add oil and eggs mixture to sugars. Mix into dry ingre. Add carrots ,pineapple, pecans and coconut. Pour in prepared pans and bake until done. I make mine in a 9X13 pan and takes 35-45 minutes depending on your oven.
Combine all except vanilla in saucepan and bring to a boil over med heat. Cook for 4 minutes stirring while it boils. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Spread hot glaze over warm cake. Cool and frost.
