How to Make a Kitty Litter Cake

This cat litter cake is the obvious accompaniment to a cat cake, or cat-themed birthday!  Caution -- make sure your cake receiver has a sense of humor!  I made this for my son and a group of his friends; seriously, what 10 year old boy wouldn't love such gross humor?  Hmm, well, the gross factor was hard for my son to overcome!  However, once he was persuaded to take a taste, he liked it!  My 6-year old had no problems!
Cat litter cake

It's very easy to make, following a basic dirt cake recipe:

1 chocolate cake
1 yellow cake
10-15 tootsie rolls  (you can also make these from scratch from this recipe:  click here)
1 large box of vanilla pudding
1 package vanilla wafers or other sturdy yellow biscuits (e.g. Marie biscuits)
Green food coloring
New cat litter scoop  (or sieve spoon)
New cat litter pan  (or roaster, or plastic pan)

Mix the pudding according to the directions and let it set up.
Bake both cakes and let them cool. Crumble the cooled cakes into pieces into the kitty litter pan. Mix the pudding into the crumbled up cakes. The cake will be just moist, not soggy.
Crush the wafers or biscuits until they are finely crumbled. Remove ¼ cup of the crumbled  up cookies and mix them with a few drops of green food coloring. Set this aside.
Sprinkle the crushed up biscuits over the cake and pudding mixture.  Top off with the reserved green dyed crumbs.
Warm up the tootsie rolls a few at a time in the microwave until they are warm and can be shaped. Shape the tootsie rolls until they resemble cat poop.  If you are making the tootsie rolls from scratch then it is easy to shape them as you want.
Insert the tootsie rolls in the cake/pudding mixture so that part of them is showing. Add a couple of tootsie rolls on the top and dangle some off of the sides of the litter pan.
Put the scoop beside the litter box on the table to serve the cake with.
