Mandarin oranges in the cake and pineapple, pecans and coconut in the filling. From living down south and all the get-togethers for Pig Picking, this cake is a sure winner with people from the Southerners as well as the Northerners. This cake brings us all together.

Really great cake! This can also be made in a 9x13 pan if you don't want to do layers and it tastes better the longer it sits in the fridge.

I won't be making this very often as it is waaaay too good. Can hardly stop with just one piece. My family all loved it. Will save it for special occasions like Thanksgiving or Christmas. It was moist, delicious and so easy to make. I agree that it probably wouldn't trvel well, but I made it in a 9x13 pan, which would travel easier than a layer cake.
