Halloween Cake Fun!

kittylittercakeWould you eat this cake even if it looks like kitty litter but you “knew” it tasted good?  I think it is just gross and I couldn’t eat it regardless of how great it  tastes!  This recipe is part of a collection in Betty Crocker’s Gross Out Cakes: The Kitty Litter Cake and Other Classics. 

Here is the recipe for those of you brave enough to try it. 



1 pkg. (18 oz.) German chocolate or devil’s good cake mix

1 pkg. (18 oz.) caramel cake mix

1 pkg. (6 oz.) instant vanilla pudding

1 pkg. (16 oz.) vanilla sandwich cookies

1 pkg. small-sized Tootsie rolls (as needed)

Green food coloring, as needed

To serve:

1 new medium sized litter box

1 new litter box scooper


1. Wash clean, new litter box and pooper scooper with soap and water and set aside to dry.

2. Prepare both cake mixes per directions on box, in separate pans. Let cool to room temperature.

3. Prepare pudding and refrigerate until needed.

4. In a food processor, crumble vanilla sandwich cookies, filling and all. You’ll need to scrape the container often to keep them from sticking.

5. Remove 1/4 cup of your cookie crumbles and place them in a small bowl. To the 1/4 C. of cookies, add a few drops of green food coloring at a time, mixing with a fork. Set aside.

6. In a large mixing bowl, coarsely crumble the cooled, prepared cakes. Add about half of the uncolored cookie crumbs. Stir to mix.

7. Gently add pudding in several batches, until a moist mixture results. You will probably not use all of the pudding; you just need a moist mix, not a soggy one.

8. Scoop cake mixture out into a clean, dry litter box.

9. Create 7-8 tootsie roll “poops” and place them (burying some slightly) in the cake mixture. To make Tootsie Roll poops, cook several Tootsie Rolls in the microwave until nicely softened. Shape into small poops, curving slightly and pulling out blunt edges.

10. Cover “poops” and cake in almost all remaining uncolored cookie crumbs (save a tiny portion for the very end). Sprinkle green cookie crumbs on top.

11. Make several more, softer Tootsie Roll “cat poops” by microwaving Tootsie Rolls until almost melted. Scrape off onto cake. Placing one softened Tootsie Roll on the side of the box like a poorly aimed cat poop.

12. Sprinkle exposed “poops” lightly with a small amount of cookie crumbs.

13. Serve this Halloween cake recipe with the pooper scooper.

Happy Halloween!

Blue Sky Scrubs offer quality and comfort

bluesky2Hi there! This is a guest post by Ashley aka Sister of The Write Gal. I was really excited to try the Blue Sky scrub line and they did not disappoint. They were so comfortable! They are made from 65%polyester+35%cotton, but felt like satin. The top has a nice cut that eliminates the boxy unisex look you find with most scrubs. And the drawstring pant was very comfortable, which is unlike most drawstring bottoms I’ve worn before. Also I liked the fun color coordinating drawstring. I received so many compliments all day and co-workers were literally touching my scrubs to feel the material. The peacock color I ordered was so pretty and vibrant. I would like to see their line offer scrubs with more pockets. Hopefully their upcoming line of scrub jackets will provide more pockets.

I originally ordered a medium in both top + bottoms (my normal scrub size). I ended up having to exchange the top for a large because I felt it was a bit small. The Blue Sky exchange was completely hassle free! Return postage was paid by their company and I received my exchange within the week!

These scrubs are high quality and provided all day comfort. Not to mention the are MADE IN THE USA!! Thanks to the Blue Sky scrub company for allowing me to try their scrubs!


I’m a bad blogger











Today when I Googled “very bad blogger” this is the picture that I found.  What should really be there is MY picture. I haven’t posted on my blog in almost a month.  If I have any readers left, thank you.  I am not going to go into a long explanation about my absence because I personally don’t enjoy reading those kinds of posts.  But I will say that The Write Gal is back and I am excited about posting on my blog again!
