the Pig Pickin' Cake always makes an appearance at a Southern gathering and bbq. Have you ever had it.....mmmm ... mmmmmm.. GOOD!
here's my recipe
1 pkg. yellow cake mix
1 large can mandarin oranges and juice
3/4 cup wesson oil
Mix all above ingredients and bake according to package directions. I always make 3 layers (cause the presentation is so pretty but you can make a sheet cake too). Remove from oven and cool. I put the layers in the freezer for 30 minutes or so to make the frosting easier to spread.
Frosting: Mix 1 package instant vanilla pudding (3.5 oz), 1 large carton cool whip and 1 large can crushed pineapple (drained and saving the juice)
Poke holes in the cake layers with fork and pour the pineapple juice on each one. Stack and frost.
When I make this for Easter or a Spring party, I tint coconut orange and sprinkle on the top....very pretty. This cake is so easy and gets rave tasting reviews.
I have added many new items to the shop and I would love for you to visit. I wish you a wonderful week.....once again, it's a busy one for me. Two day trips and a day with Mom on the road, more creating, website additions and....oh yeah.....home life. ♥♥♥ Lynn
