Kitty Litter Cake

Kitty Litter Cake 1

Totally gross and 100% awesome.
This cake will be sure to offend someone.
I made this cake for the first time ohhhh , 15 years ago. People were originally shocked to see a cat litter box on the table, but quickly realized it was food..tasty food actually.

I have seen this cake made with crumbled cake held together with pudding, but that seamed kinda sloppy to me, So I decided to find a smaller cat box, a box that a 9 x 13 cake would fit nicely into.
I don’t take the time to make a homemade cake and icing for this Halloween Cake. Pre-made ingredients work just fine and make for a quick fun Halloween themed cake!

Here is everything you need….

I trimmed the cake top off so the cake would be flat on the surface.

An absolutely discussing looking but mighty tasty cake that looks like a Kitty Litter Box. Perfect for Halloween.
Ingredients
  • 2 18.5oz Boxes of Classic Cake Mix ( or your favorite flavor), cooked to package directions and cooled completely.
  • 2 16oz. tubs Creamy Chocolate Buttercream Frosting(or your favorite flavor)
  • 14.3 oz box Vanilla Sandwich Cookies (you will need about 30 of the cookies)
  • Blue Food Coloring
  • Green Food Coloring
  • 15 Tootsie Roll Midgees, unwrapped or however many pieces of "cat poo" you want on your cake
  • Small Cat Box (14⅜ L x 11¼ W x 4" H)
  • Cat Scoop
Instructions
  1. Thoroughly wash and dry the cat box and scooper.
  2. Place one cake into the cat box, frost with just under 1 tub of frosting.
  3. Place the second cake on top. Frost the top with just under 1 tub of frosting (or use the whole can if you like a lot of frosting).
  4. In a blender, working in 2 batches, crumble the cookies until they resemble kitty litter.
  5. Scoop out ½ cup of the litter, divide ½ cup of the crushed cookies into 2 zip lock bags. (Each bag will have ¼ cup crushed cookies).
  6. Drop 3 -4 drops of green food coloring into one bag and ¾ drops of blue food coloring into the other bag. Shake the bags until the food coloring is mixed and they are small colored "crystals" of cookies.
  7. Sprinkle the non colored cookies over the frosted cake.
  8. Sprinkle the blue and green crystals over the non colored cookies.
  9. Place half the Toosie Rolls on a microwave safe plate, microwave for 10 seconds, or until slightly soft. (Careful, they will be hot)
  10. Form the Toosie Rolls into pieces of cat poo.
  11. Place on cake and roll around in the "litter" if you would like.
  12. Place the litter scoop into the cake.
  13. To serve, you can either use the scooper, or cut with a knife for cleaner cut slices.

    This is disgusting and I’m literally rolling laughing at it as well. I need to make that on April Fools for the kids. Love it!

    I heard of this cake awhile back and couldn’t believe (no matter how good it actually tasted) why someone would want a kitty litter cake. However, it really is perfect for Halloween or April Fool’s because it “looks” so gross!

      I certainly wouldn’t make it for an everyday cake 😉 Only for Halloween. Halloween is the perfect time for gross food…witches fingers, eyeballs, brains…etc. I think the kitty litter cake fits in perfectly! 🙂

    i will make this as a “Thank you” to our cat-sitter who has a hard enough time scooping out our cat box. Hilarious!
