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.
In South Carolina we definitely call this Pig Pickin' Cake. The pig is cooked outdoors usually on large gas cookers. The cooked meat is chopped & sauce added. Then everyone "picks" their BBQ from the pig. It's a southern thing like boiled peanuts. This cake is delicious and is often served at a pig pickin' but it's great anytime.
I made mine in a 9x13 pan. The consistency of the cake was great - very moist but it lacked enough flavor for me to rate it 5 stars. I recommend making a trial run at this recipe before planning to serve for an event/special occasion. I think it is an acquired taste.
My mom made this for all sorts of pot-lucks when I was growing up. The only difference was that she didn't stop at adding the cool-whip mixture between the cakes she then "iced" the whole thing with it....yummy! I think it's even better the 2nd day.
