To make the pork salad, rub the pork loin with cumin, onion powder, and garlic powder. Place the pork loin, yellow onion, garlic, and water in a slow cooker on HIGH. Cover and cook 4 ½ to 5 hours; drain and reserve excess liquid. Shred pork with two forks, add celery, red onion, chopped pickles, and mayo; add cooking liquid as needed to blend.

To assemble the slaw, in a large bowl, whisk together mayo, vinegar, salt, pepper, and cayenne. Toss in remaining slaw ingredients and chill until ready to use.

In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, cayenne, and paprika; set aside.

To assemble the cake, on a baking sheet, place 6 slices of bread into a rectangular shape with the edges touching. Spread a 1” thick layer of pork loin salad over the bread. Top with 6 pieces of white bread. Top with sliced pickles. Spread a 1” layer of pulled pork over the pickles. Cover pulled pork with slaw. Top with the remaining 6 slices of bread. Frost the cake on all sides with seasoned whipped cream cheese.

To dress the sides and top of the cake, alternate between sliced pickles, sliced radish, and cheddar cheese adhering each piece vertically to the cream cheese. Top with sliced pork tenderloin and drizzle with bbq sauce. Slice and serve.
