Whilst this cake doesn't appeal to me, I've been reassured that all the ingredients do make up a cake that looks like the contents of a cat's litter tray.  

kittylittercakeNow why anyone in their right mind would want to eat a cake resembling the contents of a cat's litter tray is beyond reason - however, should you be one of those who do, then the recipe is below.

And if you do decide to make it, please email me at the 'contact us' link or feedback form to let me know what it tastes like! Good luck and 'bon appetit' . However, looking at the date it was sent to me, I'm not sure if it isn't an April Fool's joke!

CAKE INGREDIENTS

1 box spice or German chocolate cake mix
1 box of white cake mix
1 package white sandwich cookies
1 large package vanilla instant pudding mix
A few drops green food colouring
12 small Tootsie Rolls or equivalent

SERVING "DISHES AND UTENSILS"

1 NEW cat-litter box
1 NEW cat-litter box liner
1 NEW pooper scooper

Prepare and bake cake mixes, according to directions, in any size pan.
Prepare pudding and chill. Crumble cookies in small batches in blender
or food processor. Add a few drops of green food colouring to 1 cup of
cookie crumbs. Mix with a fork or shake in a jar. Set aside.

When cakes are at room temperature, crumble them into a large bowl. Toss
with half of the remaining cookie crumbs and enough pudding to make the
mixture moist but not soggy. Place liner in litter box and pour in mixture.

Unwrap 3 Tootsie Rolls and heat in a microwave until soft and pliable.
Shape the blunt ends into slightly curved points. Repeat with three more
rolls. Bury the rolls decoratively in the cake mixture. Sprinkle remaining white cookie crumbs over the mixture, then scatter green crumbs lightly over top.

Heat 5 more Tootsie Rolls until almost melted. Scrape them on top of the
cake and sprinkle with crumbs from the litter box. Heat the remaining
Tootsie Roll until pliable and hang it over the edge of the box. Place
box on a sheet of newspaper and serve with scooper. Enjoy!
