A few weeks ago, I purchased our long-anticipated Church Cookbook:
On the way home from church, I thumbed through, looking at various recipes.
And then I arrived at a recipe so unique that it was powerful enough to change my life.
KITTY LITTER CAKE.
(Okay, maybe not change my life, but certainly add a good measure of joy to it.)
Not only was it an awesomely funny idea, but the instructions were you’re-going-to-need-a-litter-box hilariously-specific. It had such jewels as…
Unwrap 3 Tootsie Rolls and heat in a microwave until soft and pliable. Shape the blunt ends into slightly curved points.
Bury the rolls “decoratively” in the cake mixture.
Chris and I immediately knew that it was in our destiny to make this creation, especially with our affinity for making “unique” food creations.
We also knew the perfect opportunity to try out this delectable recipe: We had our second Christmas with Chris’ Family last night because his Aunt Kitty and Uncle Leo were coming in town, at which we were also celebrating Kitty’s birthday.
Besides the name resemblance, Kitty is quite a cat lover, and currently has three. Our other dinner guests, Chris’ parents, are also quite familiar with the litter box.
Plus, you have to get creative when giving a gift to someone who appreciates the art of toenail clippings, ya know?
And so it began.
We washed Oreo’s litter box…
Okay. I promise it was new.
and a White Cake.
And Tootsie Rolls, of course.
The cakes got crumbled and mixed with some of the cookies…
And then placed in the serving platter.
I then enlisted my resident poo expert, Chris, to shape the …Tootsie Turds.
He made them all different (they’re like snowflakes, you know),
and carefully coated them and buried them…
And then we sprinkled the now-food colored reserve of Oreos over the top for deodorizing crystals.
We told no one of our invention beforehand, so when Chris came and laid out the newspaper and sprinkled the escaped litter pieces, everyone was a bit confused.
