My cats’ first birthday… April 2008

So, back in June 2007 I adopted 2 kittens, a brother and sister.  We decided they must have been born some time in April.  In April, 2008 I decided to have a kitty birthday party for their first birthday.  I had always heard of the kitty litter cake and really wanted to try it.  It was alot of fun to make and tasted surprisingly good!  Here’s how it started…

I printed out some directions I found online, and went out and bought a brand new litter box and scoop, and washed them.  Then I baked 2 13×9 cakes.  I did one vanilla and one chocolate.

Then I roughly crumbled up both cakes and mixed with pudding.

Next, I crushed up some vanilla sandwich cookies.  I took a small amount of them and mixed them with some blue/green food color.  Then I sprinkled them all over the cake to look like litter.

For the finishing touch, I shaped some tootsie rolls into “turds”, and placed them around the litter box.  I turned out looking pretty realistic!

Even though it looked horrible, it tasted great!  You should have seen the looks on my nephews and nieces faces when I brought it out of the bedroom (where the real litter box is kept) and said “Look what the kitties and I made you for their birthday!!”  Even after I told them it was actually cake, they were scared to eat it until everyone else dug in!  Fun to make, fun to present, fun to eat!
