I was just thinking about getting this recipe out and sharing it with's one of my favorites too. In my recipe collection the cake is known as "Pig Lickin' Cake". It's such an easy recipe and it's really yummy.

sound yummy, think I'd try it with readi whip or whipped cream instead of Cool Whip never cared for it.

It would work with homemade whipped cream but the Reddi Whip won't work. It loses it's shape too easily and you need some substance to bind with the pudding since you are also using pineapple. There is a type of acid in pineapple often effects other ingrediants and works "against" them.
