Kicking Gross Up A Notch

My General Manager at the store is an old friend of Mr. T's and his birthday is TODAY. Of course I can't remember my name most days let alone that little factoid, so the fact that Mr. T told me that at 3:30 yesterday sent me into a panicked frenzy. I came home and was searching for a cake to make that would not cost a fortune, but would make a great culinary impact at the same time. Of course I did that by wasting precious time on Twitter, but my friends at Twitter did not disappoint me, and came through with the PERFECT cake for K-Dog's birthday!

I have to give my gal @lizwebpage credit for this one. If you are on Twitter you should follow her. Other than her crazy love of that spinning thing, she is a great gal. (That exercise spinning class thing, not spinning in circles or anything.) The original recipe is here. That was too much work for me, and sounded really gross, so I modified it as follows. 

Easy Kitty Litter Cake
1 chocolate cake mix
1 can of coconut pecan frosting
1 bag of Mother's Brand Coconut Cocadas
2-3 lemon Tootsie rolls
A handful of various sized chocolate Tootsie rolls

Make the cake according to box directions in a 13x9 pan, bake and cool. Frost with entire can of frosting. Crush 1 cup of the cookies to look like kitty litter and press lightly into frosting. Place opened Tootsie Rolls on plate in microwave for 5 seconds (only do a couple at a time) press the lemon ones into "patties" to look like pee puddles, and roll the chocolate ones into various log like formations throughout the litter. To serve use a brand new kitty litter scoop. 

I can't wait to see his reaction when I take this in to him this afternoon! I am really hoping that at least one of the employees loses their lunch when they see it! It would totally be worth it!

Would be a perfect time to bust out the video recorder. Incase, indeed, someone loses their lunch! This cake SCREAMS "You".

Someone brought one of those into my work once. I work with computer programmers, they eat anything, they live for free food. And yet, that cake sat half eaten for a week in the kitchen before someone had the nerve to pitch it. Soooooo gross looking, I can't get over it.

OK, that is AMAZING!!!
I made a pile of poop cake for a friend recently, but this is way cooler!
I need to make this for my son's second birthday. His favorite snack is litter crusted cat poop. Not even kidding.

That is disgusting, but something I am going to be stealing for one of my kids' birthdays. It would gross them out which is what I live for.

My husband used to play in a shock rock band and I would make a variation of this cake to serve at shows. People tend to have very BIG reactions to such a cake....

Well hell. My computer froze up so I kept clicking on publish. I guess that was a mistake. Only clicking once this time!

That is so gross-looking and awesome at the same time! :) That's so funny. I like your blog! Found it on Seattle Mom Blogs.

Whoo hoo! Awesome cake, Mrs T!

That puts my earth worm cake to total disgusting shame. I am so going to make it for one of the monkeys.

Bobbi said...

OMG - that's the most disgusting cake I've seen! Was it good? I've done the "sand in a pail with worms" but never kitty litter. You're too funny!

WM said...

Ok, that's just straight up nasty but incredibly funny all at the same time.
I wish you'd post video of K-dog receiving the cake...or better yet eating a slice.

Givinya De Elba said...

That is unbelievable. Well done! Love that you called your husband "Mr T." Cool.

Scary Mommy said...

That is one revolting cake!! Could anyone actually eat that thing???

My husband is so not a cat lover - we have one nonetheless and when I showed him this photo and threatened to make it for his next birthday he just shook his head saying "That's so not right!"

Perfect timing with your post...I'm writing one about birthday cakes and will be sure to include this one (with all the appropriate links)!

BTW - I'm hoping Mr. T took advantage of Cold Stone's free birthday ice cream! :)
