Let the Prepping begin

Last night I began prepping some of the food for my party. I went ahead and made the kitty litter cake and wrapped it up real tight and set it in the fridge, it looks awesome and realistic. I had to tell my husband hands off because it has 2 of his favorite things in it, pudding and cookies, lol. I also boiled the eggs for my deviled eyeballs. 2 things out of the way. Today I have lots to do. I have to bake Halloween cutout cookies, bake cupcakes & icing. Make & wrap popcorn balls and finish 2 more columns and paint all three. Things are getting done! Only downside is it is pouring down rain outside, but that's okay. The weather forecast for tomorrow says sunshine all the way! So I'm hoping my yard will dry up a bit and I can get everything set out and decorated and looking fantastically gruesome, lol. My costume is ready, I'm still on the lookout for a stethescope. I have to adventure out into town today for some last minute supplies, maybe I will find one. :-) Happy Haunting Everyone!

Recipe for Kitty Litter Cake:
  • 1 German Chocolate Cake Mix
  • 1 White Cake Mix
  • 1 package White Sandwich Cookies
  • 1 Large package Vanilla Instant Pudding Mix
  • Green food coloring
  • 12 Small Tootsie Rolls
  • 1 *NEW* kitty litter box
  • 1 *NEW* kitty litter box plastic liner
  • 1 *NEW* pooper scooper


Prepare cake mixes and bake according to directions (any size pans). Prepare pudding mix and chill until ready to assemble. Crumble white sandwich cookies in small batches in blender, they tend to stick, so scrape 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 using a fork or shake in a jar.
When cakes are cooled to room temperature, crumble into a large bowl. Toss with half the remaining white cookie crumbs and the chilled pudding. You probably won't need all of the pudding, mix with the cake and "feel" it, you don't want it soggy, just moist; gently combine.
Line new, clean kitty litter box. Put mixture into litter box.
Put three 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 and bury in mixture. Sprinkle the other half of cookie crumbs over top. Scatter the green cookie crumbs lightly over the top, this is supposed to look like the chlorophyll in kitty litter.
Heat remaining Tootsie Rolls, 3 at a time in the microwave until almost melted. Scrape them on top of the cake and sprinkle with cookie crumbs. Now spread 5 of the remaining Tootsie Rolls over the top; take one 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. Serve kitty litter cake with a *new* pooper scooper.

You can use any kind of cake mix you want really and some people switch up the tootsie rolls for various candy bars and some people switch up the pudding as well. Play with it and have fun folks!
