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.
Overall, this recipe was a great effect. It really "grossed" everybody out, but it really was tasty. But it wasn't as realistic on the first try, so I made some changes to the recipe. First, I got rid of the chocolate cake mix and opted for another white mix. Then I used Oreo cookies instead of vanilla creams. I still used a few vanilla creams with the green food coloring mixed in. And lastly, I sprinkled the whole thing with powdered sugar to mimic the baking soda that lots of folks put in their litter boxes.
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.
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!
Got gross reviews and that's what it's meant for, right!? This is the second time I've made this and to make it more tasteful I used two boxes Marble cake mix and two chocolate ready made pudding containers. I also used a tub of Creamy Fudge frosting which I microwaved and mixed with the pudding. This definitely moistened it and made it taste more like "chocolate cake" than dried cake with some pudding globs. I took the leftover frosting and drizzled on top of the cake before putting the cookie crumbs on it. You could use any type of cake mix and frosting because it's basically hidden underneath the cookie crumbs anyway.
I served this tonight at my girl scout troop's halloween party and it was a huge hit. The pan is almost empty. The cake tasted great and was perfect for the kids, but of course, the real knock-out was the way it looked. It was truly disgusting and had the parents gagging and snickering. I used Little Debbie brownies, rolled into poop-shapes, instead of tootsie rolls, which I thought would harden too easily. They looked even more realistic than the tootsie rolls. I also used an entire cup of cookie crumbs, dyed green, for the topping, and it looked really authentic.
This was the most creative cake Iv ever seen! I made this for my husband to take to work today, he called me at noon and said everyone was cracking up and loved it. I didnt use a liner and it still looked fabulous. I did crush up a Butterfinger and add it to the mix for some extra flavor. I used 4 vanilla snack packs, and it was the perfect amount!
I "serve" this cake up every year for our Halloween Party, and will be doing so again this year! Props totally make the cake! I really go for the gross-out effect and roll some of the pooh in the cookie crumbles. Not the tastiest cake, but the effect is what does it. Got a great photo last year of my cat peeking into the pan (while everyone ran to keep her out!)! Thanks Dee for always making my Halloween Party a hit!
