Kitty Litter Cake

Hey look - I'm kitty blogging! (kinda sorta - I'll get back to showing off my Sydney when I get more pictures taken) I've not made this yet, but I'm forever running into people who mention it & think it would be a hoot to do for the munchkins sometime.

Kitty Litter Cake

1 box spice or German chocolate cake mix
1 box of white cake mix
1 package white sandwich cookies
1 large package vanilla instant pudding mix
A few drops green food coloring
12 small Tootsie Rolls or equivalent

1 NEW cat-litter box
1 NEW cat-litter box liner
1 NEW pooper scooper

1) Prepare and bake cake mixes, according to directions, in any size pan. Prepare pudding and chill. Crumble cookies in small batches in blender or food processor. Add a few drops of green food coloring to 1 cup of cookie crumbs. Mix with a fork or shake in a jar. Set aside.

2) When cakes are at room temperature, crumble them into a large bowl. Toss with half of the remaining cookie crumbs and enough pudding to make the mixture moist but not soggy. Place liner in litter box and pour in mixture.

3) Unwrap 3 Tootsie Rolls and heat in a microwave until soft and pliable. Shapethe blunt ends into slightly curved points. Repeat with three more rolls. Bury the rolls decoratively in the cake mixture. Sprinkle remaining white cookie crumbs over the mixture, then scatter green crumbs lightly over top.

4) Heat 5 more Tootsie Rolls until almost melted. Scrape them on top of the cake and sprinkle with crumbs from the litter box. Heat the remaining Tootsie Roll until pliable and hang it over the edge of the box. Place box on a sheet of newspaper and serve with scooper. Enjoy!

I have a friend who makes this every year for her Halloween Party. Plus, since she's always fostering kittens for the local humane society, there is always a little bit of kitty aroma around. And there's always someone new who thinks that the cats got up on the table.

Ah... good times.

That's awesome. I made a graveyard cake for the kids at work over Halloween - the mud was very yummy.
