Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Oil and flour a 10-inch tube or Bundt pan.

Prepare the cake:
Cream together the 2 1/2 sticks of butter, cream cheese and granulated sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy.

Add the 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, the vanilla and the 1/2 teaspoon of coconut extract.

Sift together flour and salt in a medium bowl.

Add the eggs to the butter mixture two at a time, alternating with the flour mixture and mixing well after each addition.

Fold in the 3/4 cup of coconut. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

Bake for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the midpoint of the cake comes out clean.

Cool the cake in the pan for 10 to 15 minutes, then invert onto a serving plate.

Prepare the icing:
Combine the powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon of softened butter, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, lemon zest and 1 teaspoon of coconut extract in a small bowl. Mix well.

Pour over the cooled cake.

Sprinkle the 1/4 cup of coconut over the top.

Note: Icing will run down sides of cake and some will pool at the bottom. If you like, put waxed-paper strips under edge of cake before icing it and remove them after icing has set.
