Kitty Litter Cake
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 60 minutes
18 oz. box spice cake mix
18 oz. box white cake mix
16 oz. pkg. white sandwich cookies
1 large box vanilla instant pudding mix
12-16 small tootsie rolls
1 litter box (a NEW one!) (I’d use a large roasting pan)
1 plastic scoop
green food coloring
Prepare cake mixes and bake according to directions using 13×9″ pans. Let cool completely. Prepare pudding mix according to package directions and chill until ready to assemble cake. Place sandwich cookies in a heavy duty zip lock plastic bag and hit them with a rolling pin until crumbled. Set aside 1/4 cup of the cookie crumbs. Add a few drops green food coloring to the 1/4 cup crumbs and mix with a fork.
Remove the cakes from their pans and crumble into a large bowl. Toss with half the remaining white cookie crumbs and the chilled pudding. You probably won’t need all of the pudding, mix gently with the cake crumbs until evenly moist. Put mixture into a NEW litter box that has been lined three or four times with plastic wrap. Tape the plastic wrap to the sides of the box so the food doesn’t touch the pan. Better yet, use a large roasting pan for one cake, or make two cakes and put them in two 13×9″ pans.
Unwrap all the tootsie rolls. Place three of them in a microwavable dish and heat on LOW until soft and pliable, checking every 30 seconds. Taper the ends of the tootsie rolls, rolling them between your palms and curving slightly. Repeat with remaining tootsie rolls, heating them three at a time, and bury in cake mixture and place on top too. Sprinkle the other half of cookie crumbs over top. Scatter the green cookie crumbs lightly over the top (this is for the colored granules in some brands of kitty litter).
