Come along while we make the perfect Halloween gross-out cake.
Kitty Litter Cake. It's a trick and a treat all tied into one. Get it? Get it?!
Oh myyyyy meeeeeow.
I was at a party years ago where a Kitty Litter Cake was served. The hostess, all bubbly and bright, was snort-laughing the whole night about it. I couldn't eat a thing on her table. The mere thought of a cake that looks like kitty litter – served in a kitty litter box with a kitty litter scoop – well….I…..just…..there are no words.
But I'm always up for a little fun, so I willingly dove into the task of recreating the source of my lost appetite. Once it was finished, a friend stopped by and I showed him the cake.
"You are kidding. That is awful." He peered over the cake, nose upturned, "You actually molded cat poo. It looks so…..real."
And real it does look. There's no getting over the fact that this easy cake, while disgusting, is wildly clever and horribly true-to-life. In short, it's the perfect gross-out cake for Halloween!
With an entire Kitty Litter Cake sitting in my kitchen, killing the appetites of the four children who came home and refused to touch the thing, we decided to secretly ding-dong drop the cake at my cat-loving sister's house. We watched snort-giggling from the car as her husband opened the door, looked down on the doormat, and discovered…a box of kitty litter. He looked up, he looked down, he looked around. Watching him trying to decide whether he should pick up the kitty litter and take it inside, or just leave it on the steps…well that moment may have been entirely edible!
Love it or loathe it, now you can have one of your own.
