Pig Pickin' Cake created by Amber C.

I got this recipe from a local gas company cookbook. I'm not sure of the reasoning behind the name, but my kids love it. Its a light and refreshing cake, perfect following a heavy meal.

    Delicious! This is a traditional "pig pickin" cake, which is what they call BBQ's in the south! The reason for 4 stars instead of 5....the frosting had too much liquid in it. I made it and put in the fridge to set up but after 2 hours it was still a bit runny. I put between layers and on top anyways, it kind of slid down the sides and gathered at the bottom. I have looked at other recipes with this same type of cake and they suggest to use 12 oz cool whip, 15 oz crushed pineapple, undrained and a box of pudding. I also added the oranges last on low speed to break up a little but still leave some bigger pieces! Thanks, I will be making this again wtih a few changes! Oh yea and I topped with toasted coconut!
