  1. 1

    Bake both cake recipes in separate pans according to directions. Cool completely before coarsely crumbling the cakes. Mix cake crumbs together in a large bowl.

  2. 2

    Mix about half of the prepared pudding into the cake crumbs. Continue to add in small amounts of pudding until the mixture is moist, but not soggy.

  3. 3

    Crush the package of cookies into a fine crumb or use a food processor. Place ½ cup of cookie crumbs in a small bowl and mix in several drops of food colouring. Mix in all but ¼ cup of the uncolored cookie crumbs into the cake and pudding mixture. The crumbs add a sandy feel to the dessert.

  4. 4

    Line the unused litter box with a crock pot liner. Scoop the cake, pudding and cookie mixture into the litter box.

  5. 5

    Warm eight to nine unwrapped Tootsie Rolls in the oven or microwave until pliable. Shape the Tootsie Rolls by rolling it between clean hands and forming soft points into the blunt ends. Roll each shaped Tootsie Roll into the reserved uncolored cookie crumbs before adding to the top of the cake. Sprinkle the green cookie crumbs over the finished cake.

  6. 6

    Place a clean litter scooper on top of the cake to use for serving. Set the cake litter box on top of a sheet of newspaper on the table.

Tips and warnings

  • You can add pudding mix or homemade pudding to the cake crumbs. Substitute German chocolate cake for the spice cake, if desired.
  • Use a metal litter scooper instead of plastic. Plastic scoopers are not safe for handling food.
