Litter Box Cake

    1 hour 15 minutes

    A fantastic cake to serve at Halloween or April Fools. You will need a new cat litter box, liner and scoop for the full gruesome effect. The cake is delicious, that is, if you can get over the initial thought of eating from a dirty litter box.

    Serves: 20 

    • 520g chocolate sponge cake mix
    • 520g sponge cake mix
    • 200g instant vanilla pudding
    • 350g cream filled biscuits, or similar
    • 3 drops green food colouring
    • 350g Tootsie Rolls, caramel or dairy toffee sweets

    Preparation:45min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:1hour15min 

    1. Prepare cake mixes and bake according to package directions (any sized tin).
    2. Prepare vanilla pudding according to package directions and chill until ready to assemble.
    3. Crumble cream biscuits in small batches in a food processor, scraping often. Set aside all but 4 tablespoons. To the 4 tablespoons add a few drops of green food colouring and mix.
    4. When cakes are cooled to room temperature, crumble them into a large bowl. Toss with 1/2 of the remaining biscuit crumbs and the chilled vanilla dessert. You probably won't need all of the dessert, 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 biscuit crumbs. Sprinkle a small amount of the green coloured biscuit 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 biscuit 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 biscuit crumbs. Hang the remaining tootsie roll over side of litter box and sprinkle with a few green biscuit crumbs. Serve with the pooper scooper for a gross Halloween dessert.

    what a wonderful joke, delicious too!!I've made this twice now.I bought the smallest cat box I could find, and the first time, it barely covered the bottom. The second time I made up 2 vanilla cake mixes and one chocolate and it filled the pan alot better.Also, the second time, I added the pudding before it set and it was alot easier to mix.It was a big hit both times however, got lots of laughs.I would love to meet the twisted mind who first thought it up...genius.  -  31 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I have found when doing this cake that the plastic liner makes it tough to scoop so I do not use the liner for the recipe.  -  30 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    We laughed the entire time making this cake. We couldn't believe how "real" it looked! We followed others advice: no liner, peanut butter sandwich cookies, cheese cake pudding and crushed up butterfinger bars in cake. Use the 4 inch long tootsie rolls and mircrowave for about 15-20 seconds. Let them set a few minutes and then take off the plate. They only needed a little shaping. It ended up tasting pretty good! You will never have more fun making a cake!  -  20 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
