    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 15x13 inch baking tray with parchment paper.
    2. Whip egg whites to stiff peaks. Add a pinch of salt. Gradually whisk in 1/2 cup sugar until thick and glossy. Set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg yolks, 1 tbsp rum and remaining sugar until creamy. Sift flour and baking powder together in a bowl. Add coconut flakes then mix into egg yolk mixture, alternating with melted butter. Fold in egg whites. Transfer to prepared pan and bake for 20 mins. Let cool then cut out 16 - 2 1/4 inch discs.
    3. Meanwhile, combine mascarpone, 1/3 cup powdered sugar, pineapple juice and remaining rum until smooth and creamy.
    4. To assemble the cakes, arrange 8 cake discs on a clean work surface. Top each with a slice of pineapple. Distribute mascarpone cream over pineapples then sandwich with remaining cake discs.
    5. Mix remaining powdered sugar with lime juice to form a thick icing. Spread over top of each cake. Decorate with cake decorations of your choice. Chill for 1 hour then serve.
