Kitty Litter Cake

No, I haven't made it. Yet. One never knows what Madam Chow might cook up. Curiously enough, I received this recipe from my mother-in-law, the Dowager Chow. Maybe I'll make it for her birthday!

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 (please notice that it's supposed to be NEW!)
1 NEW cat-litter box liner (ditto!)
1 NEW pooper scooper (ditto!)

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. Shape the blunt ends into slightly curved points. Repeat with three more rolls. Bury the rolls decoratively (Ed. 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.

And here is a photo of the . . . masterpiece:

Apparently, this cake appears in the book Gross Out Cakes, along with mouth watering desserts such as the Open Wound Cake and the Toenail Torte. Oh, yum. And be sure to check out the imaginative creations over at Kids Kuisine!

OMG this is too funny, and reminds me of the "Dirt cups" (choc pudding, crushed oreos, and gummy worms) that I had to put together when I used to work at Sack n' Save on the Big Isle. The kids just went nuts for that stuff, naturally.

I suppose if I made this, Maddie would definitely give it a sniff... ;-)

It's safe to say that I will never own this cookbook ... thank heavens my girls are too old to want to do this one!
