    Beat butter and sugar in a small bowl with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until just combined after each addition. Transfer mixture to a large bowl; stir in desiccated coconut, sifted flour, coconut cream and pineapple, in two batches, until combined. Spread mixture into pan.

    Bake slice for 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Leave in pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Make lime glaze icing. Sift icing sugar into a small heatproof bowl; stir in butter and enough of the juice to make a soft paste. Place bowl over a small saucepan of simmering water; stir until icing is spreadable. Working quickly, spread icing over cake; sprinkle with shredded coconut.
