30 Days Of Creativity Challenge - Day 10 - Kitty Litter Cake Recipe Layout!

I was trying to think of some creative and kind of off the wall desserts for this upcoming Halloween Season and nothing could be more off the wall than Kitty Litter Cake! 
Warning:  This is not the cake to make for the person with a weak stomache as it look like a well used Kitty Litter Box when completed.  Little boys in particular tend to think it is cool to eat and believe it or not, it actually tastes great is you can get over the look of it!  Just imagine your guests eye popping out of their head as you go to serve it.  A true Halloween Trick!

I used the Cricut Expression, the Mini Monsters Cricut Cartridge, the Cuttin' Up Cricut Cartridge and the Walk In My Garden Cricut Cartridge to create this layout as well as a paper trimmer.  The cardstocks are from Prism, American Craft and KI Memories(Haunted)  I used my favorite glue,Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Adhesive, to adhere it all together!

1 spice or German chocolate cake mix
1 white cake mix
2 large packages vanilla instant pudding mix, prepared
1 large package vanilla sandwich cookies
12 small Tootsie Roll candies
Green food coloring
1 new kitty litter pan washed
1 new kitty litter pan line
1 new pooper scooper

1. Prepare cake mixes and bake according to directions (any size pans).

2. Prepare pudding mix and chill until ready to assemble.

3. Crumble white sandwich cookies in small batches in food processor, scraping often. Set aside all but about 1/4 cup. To the 1/4 cup cookie crumbs, add a few drops green food coloring and mix until completely colored.

4. When cakes are cooled to room temperature, crumble into a large bowl. Toss with half the remaining white cookie crumbs and the

5. chilled pudding. Important: mix in just enough of the pudding to moisten it. You don't want it too soggy. Combine gently.

6. Line a new, WASHED kitty litter box. Put the cake/pudding/cookie mixture into the litter box.

7. Put 3 unwrapped Tootsie rolls in a microwave safe dish and heat until soft and pliable. Shape ends so they are no longer blunt, curving slightly. Repeat with 3 more Tootsie rolls bury them in the mixture. Sprinkle the other half of cookie crumbs over top. Scatter the green cookie crumbs lightly on top of everything -- this is supposed to look like the chlorophyll in kitty litter.

8. Heat 3 Tootsie Rolls in the microwave until almost melted. Scrape them on top of the cake; sprinkle with cookie crumbs. Spread remaining Tootsie Rolls over the top. For the final touch, take one Tootsie Roll and heat until pliable, hang it over the side of the kitty litter box, sprinkling it lightly with cookie crumbs. Place the box on a newspaper and sprinkle a few of the cookie crumbs around for a truly disgusting effect!

9. This is clever Halloween cake recipe, that frightfully resembles a well used kitty litter box, is actually delicious, despite its appearance. For the proper presentation, use a brand new (and definitely unused) plastic cat litter box and spoon it onto plates with a new (NEVER used) pooper scooper. Little boys tend to think that this is a pretty cool cake!

Happy Scrappin'
