Kitty Litter Cake

The awesome ladies at OuR KrAzy kItChEn are having a fall season and Halloween Recipe Roundup. This kitty litter cake is perfect. It's delicious and kids love it!

1 spice or German chocolate cake mix
1 white cake mix
2 large packages vanilla instant pudding mix, prepared
1 large package vanilla sandwich cookies
green food coloring
12 small Tootsie Roll candies

1 new kitty litter pan
1 new kitty litter pan liner
1 new pooper scooper

Prepare cake mixes and bake according to directions (any size pans).

Prepare pudding mix and chill until ready to assemble.

Crumble white sandwich cookies in small batches in food processor, scraping often.

Set aside all but about 1/4 cup.

To the 1/4 cup cookie crumbs, add a few drops green food coloring and mix until completely colored.

When cakes are cooled to room temperature, crumble into a large bowl.

Toss with half the remaining white cookie crumbs and the chilled pudding.
*Important: mix in just enough of the pudding to moisten it. You don't want it too soggy. Combine gently.

Line a new, clean kitty litter box.

Put the cake/pudding/cookie mixture into the litter box.

Put 3 unwrapped Tootsie rolls in a microwave safe dish and heat until soft and pliable.
Shape ends so they are no longer blunt, curving slightly.

Repeat with 3 more Tootsie rolls bury them in the mixture.

Sprinkle the other half of cookie crumbs over top.

Scatter the green cookie crumbs lightly on top of everything -- this is supposed to look like the chlorophyll in kitty litter.

Heat 3 Tootsie Rolls in the microwave until almost melted. Scrape them on top of the cake; sprinkle with cookie crumbs.

Spread remaining Tootsie Rolls over the top.

For the coup de gras take one Tootsie Roll and heat until pliable, hang it over the side of the kitty litter box, sprinkling it lightly with cookie crumbs. Place the box on a newspaper and sprinkle a few of the cookie crumbs around for a truly disgusting effect!

I saw this in a book once :) I'm glad you specified "NEW" litter pan and scoop :) One day, I WILL make this.

Martha (Menagerie) said...

I love it! I had this at a party one and was so hesitant to eat it! LOL! Perfect for the Halloween party! :-)

Denise @ Sunflowers, Chocolate and Little Boys said...

I am not sure I could eat this looks too realistic, lol

He & Me + 3 said...

How fun and yummy but gross at the same time. I will never look at tootsie rolls in the same way again.

Carolina said... this looks.
Now I can't scoop the poop out of the litter box anymore without drooling ;-(

Doodles said...

I have seen this cake a parties and known it was in a new thing and what not but just couldn't bring myself to eat it. I have owned Cats my whole life and it's just a mental block... can't do it.

Queenie Jeannie said...

I'm sorry hun, but seeing how I have a cat and mess around with cleaning the litterbox everyday.....I'm so NOT going to EVER make this, lol!!

I will say it looks very true to life though! said...

That looks so much like "the real thing" I don't think I could bring myself to eat it!!! The ingredients sound wonderful though! :P

Alicia, The Snowflake said...

My friend made one of these. I love chocolate. But after having cats for so many years, this was one chocolate cake I could not eat ;)

Diane said...

sorry, i can't even bring myself to look at it! lol

Cherie said...

Ohhhhhhhhh Myyyyyyyyy Gosssshhhhhhh

That is so sick and SO cool all at the same time. I'm saving this one for April Fools day!

Thanks for sharing!

Mimi, I don't think I will be able to look at a Tootsie Roll the same way ever again. This is really disgusting, which for Halloween, and for Halloween ONLY, I guess it would be a compliment. I'll bet some college kids would love it for a gross haunted house Halloween party.
Thanks for participating in Our Krazy Kitchen's Halloween roundup.

It's worth making just to see the expressions on peoples' faces.

Martha said...

OMGoodness! I have a cat and this is Too Much! Love it, thanks for sharing.
