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!

    OH yuck! LOL. I have 3 indoor cats and that looks all too familiar to me (well not that bad actually!). I just don’t think I could eat that…I know I couldn’t!
