Cat Shit Cake! Yum!

posted by on March 26 at 15:41 PM




* 1 (18.25 ounce) package German chocolate cake mix
* 1 (18.25 ounce) package white cake mix
* 2 (3.5 ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix
* 1 (12 ounce) package vanilla sandwich cookies
* 3 drops green food coloring
* 1 (12 ounce) package tootsie rolls


1. Prepare cake mixes and bake according to package directions (any size pan).
2. Prepare pudding according to package directions and chill until ready to assemble.
3. Crumble sandwich cookies in small batches in a food processor, scraping often. Set aside all but 1/4 cup. To the 1/4 cup add a few drops of green food coloring and mix.
4. When cakes are cooled to room temperature, crumble them into a large bowl. Toss with 1/2 of the remaining cookie crumbs, and the chilled pudding. You probably won’t need all of the pudding, you want the cake to be just moist, not soggy.
5. Line kitty litter box with the kitty litter liner. Put cake mixture into box.
6. Put half of the unwrapped tootsie rolls in a microwave safe dish and heat until softened. Shape the ends so that they are no longer blunt, and curve the tootsie rolls slightly. Bury tootsie rolls randomly in the cake and sprinkle with half of the remaining cookie crumbs. Sprinkle a small amount of the green colored cookie crumbs lightly over the top.
7. Heat 3 or 4 of the tootsie rolls in the microwave until almost melted. Scrape them on top of the cake and sprinkle lightly with some of the green cookie crumbs. Heat the remaining tootsie rolls until pliable and shape as before. Spread all but one randomly over top of cake mixture. Sprinkle with any remaining cookie crumbs. Hang the remaining tootsie roll over side of litter box and sprinkle with a few green cookie crumbs. Serve with the pooper scooper for a gross Halloween dessert.

some people need to work so their minds stay occupied.

Why do I get the feeling that cat people would enjoy this or otherwise find it cute?

Remember to spay or neuter your cat person.

We had that at a friend's birthday party several years ago, though I think ours used something other than tootsie rolls. It was delicious.

Why do you hate us so?

i've always said, "why bake a cake facsimile when you can have the real thing for free?"

I've had this at a work pitch-in. Disturbing, but yeah, tasty.

Oh, come on! This is a total rip-off of Susan Mudgett's famous Deep Shit Cookies (google it), which uses a much more realistic "litter" of Grape Nuts cereal. Add a few (very few) squirts of Hershey's syrup on the scoop for extra realism. Best if the box is laid on the floor, where you can casually walk over and pick one up and eat it -- but be careful that there isn't a real cat nearby.

I made these 15 years ago, and they were a huge hit with the younger kids.

I've got a nephew who's gonna be ready for that in about a year or two....

Maybe that's what we had, it sounds closer.

you have got to be shitting me...

Only an asshole would let their cat's litter box get that dirty before cleaning it.

I think a nastier one would be "Crazy Old Woman's Cat Shit Cake" and double the tootsie rolls, mix in candy cigarettes, dribble some caramel, cherry and pineapple syrups and serve it on a dirty old Muu Muu.

Megan, my mom emailed me this link over a year ago and she's like 60. I can't believe you are just getting around to this now.

#7, I take it that was originally re: erotic cakes?

Problem is, it's not really a cake, it's just a big mess. For some truly mind-blowing cake-art, check these out:

We don't appreciate this anti-cat humor, so we're going to ignore you for the rest of the day.

I almost made that for my Halloween party last year, but thought it was a little too much. I went with brains on the half skull (cream cheese sculpted skull with crab brains), witch fingers cookies (slivered almonds as fingernails), and eyeball appetizers (which flattened out and ended up looking like boobs).

Had one of these at a friend's birthday a few years back -- gross _and_ tasty!

#4 - wrong. DO NOT WANT.

Posted by wbrproductions | March 27, 2008 8:44 AM

Looks delicious!

Posted by Kristin | March 27, 2008 11:41 AM

These are always immensely popular at cat shows and kids' birthday parties. It works best if you half-melt at least a couple of the tootsie rolls and drape them slimily over the side of the litterbox.

I don't like cats and never owned one. Having said that, what is with the green splats?
