Kitty Litter Cake

by Hannah Holt »


This attention grabbing Halloween cake is deceptively delicious. If you’re brave enough to serve yourself a scoop, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Kitty Litter Cake

Kitty Litter Cake

18.5 oz spice cake mix (flavor optional, choose your favorite)

2 5.1 oz packages instant vanilla pudding 

12 oz vanilla wafer cookies, crushed (a blender works well)

6 to 10 Tootsie Rolls

1 kitty litter pan (new!)

1 plastic pooper scooper (new, too!)

green food coloring

  1. Prepare the cake and pudding according to package directions. Add a few drops of green food coloring to 1 cup of the cookie crumbs and set the rest of the cookie crumbs aside.

  2. Crumble half of the baked cake into the kitty litter pan. Spread half of the pudding over this layer.

  3. Add the rest of the cake on top of the pudding and cover with the remaining pudding.

  4. Sprinkle the non-colored cookie crumbs into the pan with the cake/pudding mix.

  5. Soften the Tootsie Rolls by placing in the microwave for 10 seconds on high and shape to resemble cat scat. Arrange the Tootsie Rolls on the cookie-pudding cake mixture.

  6. Sprinkle all with the green cookie crumbs. Serve with pooper scooper.
