Cooking instruction summary:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line the bottom of a 10-inch tube pan with parchment paper (do not grease the sides); set aside.In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, coconut, baking powder, and salt.In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, lime juice, coconut oil, water, lime zest, and vanilla extract. Make a small well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients in. Mix just until combined, taking care not to over-mix.In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment (or with a hand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment), combine egg whites and cream of tartar. Beat on medium for 1 minute, then gradually increase the mixing speed to medium-high and beat for 3 to 4 minutes or until stiff peaks form. Use a large rubber spatula to gently fold the egg whites into batter.Pour the batter into the prepared pan, then gently tap the pan on the counter 3 times to remove air bubbles. Place in the oven and bake for 45 to 55 minutes, or until top is golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.Invert pan and let cake cool for about 90 minutes. Once the cake has cooled, run a thin knife around the edge to loosen and invert onto a serving platter (I have a thin wire cake tester that I use for this).To make the glaze, whisk all of the ingredients together in a small mixing bowl. Poke the top of the cake several times with a toothpick or cake tester, then drizzle the glaze over cooled cake. Allow the glaze to set, about 10-15 minutes. Garnish before serving, if desired.

Food Joke

There once was an accountant who lived her whole life without ever taking advantage of any of the people she worked for. In fact, she made sure that every job she did resulted in a win-win situation. One day while walking down the street she was tragically hit by a bus and she died. Her soul arrived up in heaven where she was met at the Pearly Gates by St. Peter himself. "Welcome to Heaven," said St. Peter. "Before you get settled in though it seems we have a problem. You see, strangely enough, we've never once had an accountant make it this far and we're not really sure what to do with you." "No problem, just let me in." said the accountant. "Well, I'd like to, but I have higher orders. What we're going to do is let you have a day in Hell and a day in Heaven and then you can choose whichever one you want to spend an eternity in." "Actually, I think I've made up my mind...I prefer to stay in Heaven" "Sorry, we have rules..." And with that St. Peter put the accountant in an elevator and it went down-down-down to hell. The doors opened and the accountant found herself stepping out onto the putting green of a beautiful golf course. In the distance was a country club and standing in front of her were all her friends - fellow accountants that she had worked with and they were all dressed in evening gowns and cheering for her. They ran up and kissed her on both cheeks and they talked about old times. They played an excellent round of golf and at night went to the country club where she enjoyed an excellent steak and lobster dinner. She met the Devil who was actually a really nice guy and she had a great time telling jokes and dancing. The accountant was having such a good time that before she knew it, it was time to leave. Everybody shook her hand and waved goodbye as she got on the elevator. The elevator went up-up-up and opened back up at the Pearly Gates and found St. Peter waiting for her. "Now it's time to spend a day in heaven." So the accountant spent the next 24 hours lounging around on clouds and playing the harp and singing. She had a great time and before she knew it her 24 hours were up and St. Peter came and got her. "So, you've spent a day in hell and you've spent a day in heaven. Now you must choose your eternity." The accountant paused for a second and then replied, "Well, I never thought I'd say this, I mean, Heaven has been really great and all, but I think I had a better time in Hell." So St. Peter escorted her to the elevator and again the accountant went down-down-down back to Hell. When the doors of the elevator opened she found herself standing in a desolate wasteland covered in garbage and filth. She saw her friends were dressed in rags and were picking up the garbage and putting it in sacks. The Devil came up to her and put his arm around her. "I don't understand," stammered the accountant, "Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and a country club and we ate lobster and we danced and had a great time. Now all there is is a wasteland of garbage and all my friends look miserable." The Devil looked at her and smiled. "That's because yesterday you were a recruit, but today you're staff." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- An accountant applies for the position of Chief Financial Officer. There are a number of candidates and he is called in for an interview. They ask him a number of questions and one of the panel suddenly says "What is nine multiplied by four?" He thinks quickly and says "Thirty five." When the interview is over he goes outside, takes out his calculator and finds the correct answer is not thirty five. He thinks "Well, I blew that" and goes home very disappointed. Next day he is rung up and told he has got the job. "Wonderful," he says, "but what about nine multiplied by four? My answer wasn't right" "We know, but of all the candidates you came the closest."
