Kitty Litter Cake

User Rating 5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


This is truly gross looking; perfect for a Halloween party. For a picture, go to: Kitty Litter Cake.

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 16 servings


  • 18 oz. box spice cake mix
  • 18 oz. box white cake mix
  • 16 oz. pkg. white sandwich cookies
  • 1 large box vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 12-16 small tootsie rolls
  • 1 litter box (a NEW one!) (I'd use a large roasting pan)
  • 1 plastic scoop
  • green food coloring


Prepare cake mixes and bake according to directions using 13x9" pans. Let cool completely. Prepare pudding mix according to package directions and chill until ready to assemble cake. Place sandwich cookies in a heavy duty zip lock plastic bag and hit them with a rolling pin until crumbled. Set aside 1/4 cup of the cookie crumbs. Add a few drops green food coloring to the 1/4 cup crumbs and mix with a fork.

Remove the cakes from their pans and 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 gently with the cake crumbs until evenly moist. Put mixture into a new litter box that has been lined three or four times with plastic wrap. Tape the plastic wrap to the sides of the box so the food doesn't touch the pan. Better yet, use a large roasting pan for one cake, or make two cakes and put them in two 13x9" pans.

Unwrap all the tootsie rolls. Place three of them in a microwavable dish and heat on LOW until soft and pliable, checking every 30 seconds. Taper the ends of the tootsie rolls, rolling them between your palms and curving slightly. Repeat with remaining tootsie rolls, heating them three at a time, and bury in cake mixture and place on top too. Sprinkle the other half of cookie crumbs over top. Scatter the green cookie crumbs lightly over the top (this is for the colored granules in some brands of kitty litter).

Many variations can be made on this cake, all of them successful! Thank you for adding the concept of the cat stuffed toy. When we made it for a friend's bithday (who loves cats) we put one of her presents, a whimsical cat ring-holder, right on the corner of the cake. Standing with tail up, on a thin cookie (back end ""pointing"" to the rest of the cake LOL!). So you see, it can be used as a fun gift giving opportunity, as well!
