Method:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 13 x 9 inch baking pan. Combine the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the fruit cocktail, eggs and vanilla. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

To make the icing:

Combine the milk, butter and sugar in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until the mixture boils. Boil 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat, and add the vanilla, coconut and pecans. Spread over the cake. Cut into squares and serve. Store leftovers covered at room temperature.
