To make the glaze:

  • Whisk to combine juice, sugar, zest and salt. If the glaze appears too thick, add a little more lime juice until desired consistency is achieved; if glaze appears too thin, add a little more confectioners' sugar until desired consistency is achieved.
  • Once cakes are cool, dip or drizzle each cake with the glaze. Top with toasted coconut and lime zest. Enjoy!
