Kitty LItter Cake - Happy Halloween (Week 44)

I was going to make something fun for Halloween but it looks like I am going to have to suck it up and be lazy this year.  However, I did tell a few of my pals about this hysterical cake that my sister made and now the recipe is in demand.  Here it is --- the Kitty Litter Cake.  Totally gross but really tasty.  My hope is that Stephanie will weigh in with any extra gross tips.

1 spice or German chocolate cake mix (personal preference for Duncan Hines)
  • 1 white cake mix (ditto on the preference...with white cake it DOES make a difference)
  • 1 large package vanilla instant pudding mix, prepared
  • 1 large package vanilla sandwich cookies
  • green food coloring
  • 12 small Tootsie Roll candies
  • You'll also need: (note the word "NEW"...eeewww...)
  • 1 new kitty litter pan
  • 1 new kitty litter pan liner
  • 1 new pooper scooper


  • 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 food processor, scraping 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 until completely colored.
  • When cakes are cooled to room temperature, crumble into a large bowl. Toss with half the remaining white cookie crumbs and the chilled pudding. Important: mix in just enough of the pudding to moisten it. You don't want it too soggy. Combine gently.
  • Line a new, clean kitty litter box. Put the cake/pudding/cookie mixture into the litter box.
  • Put 3 unwrapped Tootsie rolls in a microwave safe dish and heat until soft and pliable. Shape ends so they are no longer blunt, curving slightly. Repeat with 3 more Tootsie rolls bury them in the mixture. Sprinkle the other half of cookie crumbs over top. Scatter the green cookie crumbs lightly on top of everything -- this is supposed to look like the chlorophyll in kitty litter.
  • Heat 3 Tootsie Rolls in the microwave until almost melted. Scrape them on top of the cake; sprinkle with cookie crumbs. Spread remaining Tootsie Rolls over the top. For the coup de gras take one Tootsie Roll and heat until pliable, hang it over the side of the kitty litter box, sprinkling it lightly with cookie crumbs. Place the box on a newspaper and sprinkle a few of the cookie crumbs around for a truly disgusting effect!
See all the "cool" stuff you learn when you follow my blog.....LOL!!  Who knew Tootsie Rolls could double as .....??
