Kitty Litter Cake

How can something that looks so gross be yummy?  My son and I made this cake ten years ago when he was a Cub Scout as a fundraiser for the Blue and Gold banquet.  It won first place! It's PERFECT for April Fools' Day!

You will need:

 

1 box cake mix - any kind

can of white frosting

vanilla sandwich cookies like Golden Oreos

Tootsie Rolls

Green food coloring

Powdered sugar

NEW AND UNUSED Kitty litter scoop

 

1. Bake cake according to box in a 9x13 pan.  Cool cake and frost with white frosting.  In a blender or food processor, crumble the cookies.  (I used about a dozen).  Put about 1/4 of the crumbled cookies in a large plastic zipper bag and shake with a few drops of green food coloring.  With the remaining cookie crumbs mix about 1/3 cup powdered sugar.

 

Sprinkle the white crumbs on the frosted cake.  Then sprinkle green tinted crumbs on top.  Microwave Tootsie Rolls (for about 8 seconds) and pinch ends together.  Place on top of cake and hang one over the edge of the pan.  Serve with a BRAND NEW pooper scooper.
