April Fools!!!

I came across this kitty litter cake idea while searching Madonna's (yes THAT Madonna) blog some time last year. I went back later to write down the instructions and her blog was no longer set up...little did I know that a simple Google search would turn up multiple instructions and even some photos.

My kids though it was gross!!! Heehee LOL!

Without further ado, here's the recipe:

Kitty Litter Cake
Serving Size:
This is a fun cake! It might look gross, but it does taste good!


1 (18 oz.) box spice or german chocolate cake mix
1 (18 oz.) box white cake mix
1 pkg. white sandwich cookies
1 large box vanilla instant pudding mix
12 small tootsie rolls
1 litter box (preferably a NEW one!)
1 plastic scoop
green food coloring

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 blender, they tend to stick, so scrape 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 using a fork or shake in a jar.
When cakes are cooled to room temperature, crumble into a large bowl. Toss with half the remaining white cookie crumbs and the chilled pudding. You probably won’t need all of the pudding, mix with the cake and “feel” it, you don’t want it soggy, just moist; gently combine. Put mixture into clean litter box.
Put three unwrapped Tootsie rolls in a microwave safe dish and heat until soft and pliable. Form the three softened Tootsie rolls into one roll. Shape ends so they are no longer blunt, curving slightly. Repeat with 3 more Tootsie rolls and bury in mixture. Sprinkle the other half of cookie crumbs over top. Scatter the green cookie crumbs lightly over the top, this is supposed to look like the chlorophyll in kitty litter. Heat remaining Tootsie Rolls, three at a time in the microwave until almost melted. Scrape them on top of the cake and sprinkle with cookie crumbs. Place the box on a newspaper and sprinkle a few of the cookie crumbs around. Serve with a new pooper scooper.

Wow, that's neat, yet disgusting looking at the same time! LOL

I've been waiting for someone to do an "April Fools" something and you did well. Harley looks like she had to be restrained from using it.

My question is, how did it taste?

It tasted quite good actually!!! It was so funny asking Hayden (who was asleep for the photo) if he wanted any of it. He looked at me like I was crazy, but as soon as he saw me eat it, he didn't mind one bit!

Evil Harley thoughts while wickedly rubbing her paws together:
Stupid humans...I have stethily replaced those "tootsie rolls" with a "deposit" of my own, and they don't know it!

That is too gross!!! I like the one you put on the edge of the box. It makes it look like it was a hit and run. The poop never even made it in the box.... How fun. Are you going to keep that box for that specific cake or will Harley get to use it someday?
