A few weeks ago, our good friend Lauren sent me an e-mail with a recipe for a "Kitty Litter" cake that she got from her mom.
So I then sent it on to several friends, who then sent it on to several friends... you get the picture.
Well today I get an e-mail from Parnell (the Orchid Painter) with this picture attached. His co-worker Lyndsay actually made this cake for her uncle's birthday!!!!
I don't know where this recipe originated, but here is the recipe.
1 spice or German chocolate cake mix
1 white cake mix
2 large pkg vanilla instant pudding mix, prepared
1 large pkg vanilla sandwich cookies
green food coloring
12 small Tootsie Rolls(r)
1 new kitty litter pan
1 new plastic 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 or
put in sandwich baggies and crush with tolling pin. 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 three 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; take one 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!
