    Spray four 8 x 12 x 1 inch aluminum baking pans with canola cooking spray.

    Mix in pot:
    10 lb sugar
    3 cups water
    2 Tbsp white vinegar

    Heat on high, while stirring. Use candy thermometer to monitor temperature. At 242 degrees Fahrenheit, remove from heat. Cool to 180 degrees Fahrenheit - will take a while. Froth using an electric mixer. Mixture will turn white. Do not mix too long, because if mixture becomes too cool, it will be like concrete. Fill pans ½" deep. Allow to cool until the next day. Score and break the contents of each pan into two cakes.
