How to Make a Pig Pickin Cake

When I was young, my Mom introduced me to a Pig Pickin Cake. I had no idea why anyone would call a cake something like that, but after eating it I assumed it was because one piece of a Pig Pickin Cake just wasn’t enough. Many feel like pigging out on this delicious cake, but that is not why they call it a Pig Pickin Cake. It is actually a cake traditionally included during barbeques or pig roasts down south. Regardless of where it originated, it is now a tradition to make in our house.
