A dream come true…


Many years ago, my brother found a recipe online for a cake that looked exactly like a dirty cat box. Because we’re both sick and depraved, we thought it was hilarious and wished we could come up with an occasion to make one. Many friends can attest to the fact that while telling the story of this cake, I would laugh so hard I cried. Flash forward to Halloween 2012 and my lovely husband decided to make one for his office Halloween gathering. Especially hilarious given that he works for a major health/organic supermarket chain and these are the main ingredients:

The premise of the cake is pretty simple. You make the two cake mixes and then let both cakes cool. Then you crumble them up into a big bowl:

IMG_3427That’s right! It’s time to make the cat poop! You microwave the Tootsie Rolls for a few seconds in the microwave before you form them:
