Kitty Litter Cake

Updated to welcome over friends from Kelly's Korner! This cake was delicious, but more so HILARIOUS and fun!!! Enjoy the read and PLEASE let me know if you try it someday, too!!!

Just like many of you, dear blog readers, I cannot stand email forwards. However, every once in a while, I'll pause and read one, and sometimes, just sometimes, I'll even save one. Last November, my hilarious sister sent me a recipe with a fantastic photo for a kitty litter cake. Naturally, as a cat lover , I have known the joy of cleaning a litter box...even with the most discreet kitty, the process is foul. So, when I saw this cake, I KNEW I had to save it and make it for the right occassion. Well, yesterday was the right occassion!

Amy and Tomas (friends from church) invited me over to their house for a football fiesta via evite. On the evite, attendees were asked to bring a food item to share. As Amy and Tomas happen to have THREE cats, I knew this would be the perfect chance to make the cake.

I'm no baker, but opening a box of mix, adding a few eggs and water, mixing and throwing into the oven is a snap...takes about 30 minutes. Well, I HAD to get this, the fabulous end product shown below took me TWO HOURS to get it just right! But let me tell you, it was worth every second when I saw the responses of the party people! Someone literally climbed over the couch to get a better look! : )

1 box chocolate fudge cake mix
1 box of yellow butter cake mix
1 package white sandwich cookies
1 jar of whipped vanilla frosting
1 box of food coloring
1 container of decorating frosting

1 NEW cat-litter box
1 NEW pooper scooper

1) Prepare and bake cake mixes, according to directions, in any size pan. Crumble cookies in small batches in blender or food processor. Add a few drops of green food coloring to 1 cup of cookie crumbs. Mix with a fork or shake in a jar. In a seperate bowl, mix whipped frosting with a combination of food coloring to appear a light brown. Set aside.
2) When cakes are at room temperature, cut into small pieces and put them into a large bowl. Toss with the now brownish frosting. Place mixture in litter box. Cover contents with cookie crumbs.
3) Mix food coloring and decorating frosting to a darker brown and place in a sandwich bag. Cut off the end of the bag and "decorate" till your heart's content. Sprinkle remaining white cookie crumbs over the mixture, then scatter green crumbs lightly over top.

Well, this was originally disgusting, but then I laughed! How fun! I didn't think any cake could have a higher "gross-out factor" than the dirt cake with gummy worms! I know some little boys who would LOVE this!!!!
