Kitty Litter Cake

            
Kitty Litter Cake
 
 I've been at parties where this was served, and  I can assure you that it's delicious... if you're brave enough to try it!  Would you?  Could you?  Now that's something to ponder! :-)
 
"You'll need a brand new kitty litter box, box liner and litter scoop as props to get the full effect with this cake!"  
 
Ingredients:
 
                    
Directions:
  1. Prepare cake mixes and bake according to package directions (any size pan).
  2. Prepare pudding according to package directions and chill until ready to assemble.
  3. Crumble sandwich cookies in small batches in a food processor, scraping often. Set aside all but 1/4 cup. To the 1/4 cup add a few drops of green food coloring and mix.
  4. When cakes are cooled to room temperature, crumble them into a large bowl. Toss with 1/2 of the remaining cookie crumbs, and the chilled pudding. You probably won't need all of the pudding, you want the cake to be just moist, not soggy.
  5. Line kitty litter box with the kitty litter liner. Put cake mixture into box.
  6. Put half of the unwrapped tootsie rolls in a microwave safe dish and heat until softened. Shape the ends so that they are no longer blunt, and curve the tootsie rolls slightly. Bury tootsie rolls randomly in the cake and sprinkle with half of the remaining cookie crumbs. Sprinkle a small amount of the green colored cookie crumbs lightly over the top.
  7. Heat 3 or 4 of the tootsie rolls in the microwave until almost melted. Scrape them on top of the cake and sprinkle lightly with some of the green cookie crumbs. Heat the remaining tootsie rolls until pliable and shape as before. Spread all but one randomly over top of cake mixture. Sprinkle with any remaining cookie crumbs. Hang the remaining tootsie roll over side of litter box and sprinkle with a few green cookie crumbs. Serve with the pooper scooper for a gross Halloween dessert.

    1. It is amazing to me how many people won't touch it because it is served in a litter box with a scoop! :-)

  3. Umm...not so sure I could do this. Just too much of a realist, having been a vet tech/rescuer. No offense...just too... umm... yeah. I have to wonder who would think this up...and why. Maybe something similar for a pet birthday party. Yeah, that works.
    Creative response to this prompt, Josie. Hug.

    1. It is interesting, Annie, how our minds are set on the visual of litter boxes that need scooping, and the idea of dishing it up to eat... well, yuck! One does have to wonder about the creator of this concept, maybe needs something better to do with his/her time? I think my furkids would rather have tuna on their birthdays than litter box cake! :-)

  4. Not sure I would touch this either..... not necessarily because of it's presentation in the box, but it just doesn't look to appealing!

    Thanks for pondering with me!

    1. Agreed Brenda, though the mixture of ingredients does make it taste surprisingly good... it just looks gross, most definitely! Maybe if it was scooped into nice glass serving dishes it might appear a little more palatable. Our minds overrule the recipe on this one! :-)

  5. Had no idea! I think I would prefer "Sex in a pan" instead.

    1. It's funny, isn't it Lisa... we look at that and definitely think of the real ones we are scooping everyday... and not into the serving dish, most definitely!! It is not my favorite task either!!

    1. It is clever, and looks amazingly like what it pretends to be, Gail! As far as I'm concerned, if it tastes good, I'm eating it! My husband once had a birthday party where chips and dip were served in brand new plastic bedpans. He reports that some people refused to eat them, that is silly, but I guess they couldn't get past the typical bedpan use! :-)

  8. This is a good way to 'entertain' your guests and yourself...
    I might try the cake after someone else has tried it first.

    1. I think kids would get a kick out of it, Romi, probably wouldn't eat it though! Someone brought it in to an office where I worked once, and we did eat it, some of us did anyway... it was yummy! :-)

  10. We did a version of this at homeschool co-op one year, and the kids really loved it, although the parents weren't too sure!

    1. I think kids are much more willing to try something new and to find the humor in it, Mimi, while the parents are just thinking "gross"! After all, kids love gummy worms too, and that seems pretty gross to me! :-)

  11. I could eat it if the room was dark and nobody told me the name of the cake. I have to clean kitty litter everyday and this looks too real for me. LOL :)
