Sticky coconut cake

On Little Corn Island in Nicaragua (so in the Caribbean part of this Central American country), I went to a Cuban restaurant that served us what they called coconut cake. It was the tastiest thing I've ever had. I'm not sure there was rice in it. I don't think there was any. It was made with shredded coconut, was pretty sticky and heavy, very sweet, about a half inch thick and was served with a maraschino cherry on top.

Is anyone familiar with this recipe? I'd loooove to recreate it. So far all I can think of is making a simple syrup with a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg and then adding tons of shredded coconut. It could be a South/Central American, Cuban or Caribbean recipe... I haven't had much luck with google so far...
