pig pickin' cake!

I've become a contributor to what's rightfully being described as the social network of the South--The Southern Coterie. If you have any fascination with or connection to the southern US, you simply must take a look at our site.



It's brand new, and there are lots of giveaways to break the ice. You'll find everything from food and fashion to football and family.

I decided to showcase a Tropical Pig Pickin' Cake as my debut. It's the kind of cake that becomes unrecognizable the longer it sits in the fridge, as the cake layers and frosting slowly merge together into one blissfully moist and tasty concoction. It's a winner, plus, what a name!

Speaking of names, the first rule of raising chickens is simple: DO NOT NAME THEM.


Doh.

Hi Honey! This looks amazing. And I can't wait to check out the sight. I'm a southern girl now myself...if Texas counts!

Barbara said...

Oh no! Don't name the chicks! Been there, done that, made the same mistake.
That is one gooey looking cake, grace. Guess I better check out the site, after all, I've lived in the south since 1970.
I am definitely southern. Sort of.

Carrot cake has always been one of my favourites

Carolyn Jung said...

LOL It must be so hard to not name them, though. Chicks are so adorable and cute. And each one does have its own personality. ;)

Chicks are so cute! Naming them is not easy though...
