My mom and I made this cat birthday cake for a lady who owns a pampered white kitty cat. We baked 2 9x13 cakes and stacked them together with icing inbetween. Then we started at the back of the cake and rounded the cat's back and progressed up toward the cat's head. The head was a separately baked small cake carved to resemble a cat's head. We sat the head on the cat's front paws which were shaped from left over cake that we cut off the body. The legs and tail were also formed from leftover cake.
We set the cat on top of another 12x18 cake decorated to resemble an aztec print blanket which is what the real cat actually sleeps on. I used tip 233 (the grass tip) but pulled the hairs out long and smooth. The ears were made from gumpaste several days in advance so they had time to dry. The eyes were also made from gumpaste and a toothpick was stuck into the back of each. When we put the eyes on the cake, we cut out an indention and simply stuck them on and then added some buttercream piped details to make them look real.
A few pieces of fishing line (the only thing not edible on the cake!) for the whiskers and eyebrows topped the cake off!
This Kitty Litter Cake was a HUGE hit! Perfect for a kid's party, or Halloween party, or gag gift! It's all edible! You will need a small kitty litter box and kitty litter scooper (brand new). I covered the cake board with newspaper.
The main cake is chocolate cake mix (9x13) crumbled into pieces then mixed with 1 cup of vanilla pudding until moist but not smothered, Put the cake and pudding mixture in the kitty litter pan. Next, food process an entire box off vanilla cookies (make sure they are light colored) into "sand" size pieces. After the entire package of cookies is process, add a few drops of green food coloring and mix together.
Sprinkle the cookies on the top of the cake to look like "litter". Finally, microwave small tootsie rolls for just a few seconds (until soft) and roll out to look like "kitty poop". Hang them over the box, put them in the litter, on the newspaper, and the scooper. The more tootsie rolls the better!
I did this Kitty Litter Cake for Halloween, however it would be great for a birthday cake also! Some tips for a perfect Kitty Litter Cake is to mix half the cookie crumbs with blue/green food dye (chlorophyll) and to melt the tootsie rolls slightly and drag them along the top and side of the box to make it look like the Kitty had an accident on the box.
I have a great video of how to make this cake with the recipe and steps... and drama.:)
I made this kitty litter cake using 2 cake mixes (chocolate & yellow). Bake the cakes according to the directions. Crumple all the cake into a clean, never been used litter box. Add green food coloring to a package of crumpled up vanilla sandwich cookies and make large packages of vanilla pudding.
Layer all the ingredients in the litter box. You will also need approx. 12 tootsie rolls softened in the microwave. Add the pooper scooper & enjoy!
I have 3 boys and am a bit tired of car and monster truck cakes. So I wanted to do something a little different. We got a kitty back in November and Ethan has been in love ever since. So I made him a Smokey the Cat Birthday Cake. He named his cat Smokey. It was a hit he loved it.
