INGREDIENTS FOR GLAZE:
INGREDIENTS FOR FROSTING:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Generously grease a 9 x 13-inch baking pan or two 9-inch cake pans.
TO PREPARE CAKE:
Sift flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together; set aside.
In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add oil, buttermilk, sugar and vanilla and mix well. Add flour mixture, pineapple, carrots, coconut, raisins and walnuts and stir well.
Pour into prepared pan. Bake 45 to 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
TO PREPARE BUTTERMILK GLAZE:
In a small saucepan over high heat, combine sugar, baking soda, buttermilk, butter and corn syrup. Bring to a boil. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Set glaze aside until cake is baked.
Remove cake from oven and slowly pour glaze over hot cake. Cool cake in pan until glaze is totally absorbed, about 15 minutes.
In a large bowl, cream butter and cream cheese until fluffy. Add vanilla, powdered sugar, orange juice and orange peel. Mix until smooth. Frost cake and refrigerate until frosting is set. Serve cake chilled.
