Cake pops

As I am not the second coming of Betty Crocker, I’m thankful for baking enthusiasts out there who concoct new ways to get baked goodies and heavenly desserts into my belly. Even better? Using candy as a vehicle to further encourage consumption of said goodies (not that you need extra motivation). For example: cake pops. Haven’t heard of them? It’s exactly as it sounds — cake on a stick, like a blow pop, but instead of a gum-based center, you get a moist mouthful of cake.

Easter Bunny Cake and Candy Creation

Easter Bunny Cake with M&M's

Home Economics: my dream class, and one that ended up being a lot more useful than just providing an opportunity for an easy “A.” I can’t remember if I took Home Ec in middle or high school, but what I can remember is one of the most fun ideas to ever sit atop the kitchen counter – the Easter Bunny Cake.

Of course, there are time-consuming and rewarding recipes to make a cake and the frosting from scratch, but we were teenagers, and our teacher wasn’t about to delve into scratch baking with us. Besides, it was a lot more fun to turn some random round cakes into an Easter Bunny than it was to learn how to actually bake.

Litterbox Cake

I don’t know why I think this is so funny. Maybe it’s because I have three cats and I’m intimately familiar with litterboxes. Maybe it’s because I have the maturity of a 12-year-old in my 30-something-year-old body. This is a cake but it looks just like a litterbox. It’s made with either a spice or a German chocolate cake mix, white cake mix, white sandwich cookies, instant vanilla pudding mix, green food coloring, and 12 Tootsie Rolls. I love the description:

Litterbox Cake is a moist, tasty medley of cake and instant pudding accented with green cookie crumbs and chocolate candy “turds”. It’s especially appropriate for a cat-lover’s wedding or birthday, but really it’s hard to think of an occasion when a Litterbox Cake wouldn’t hit the spot.

Some more great quotes from the recipe:

  • “Place a new liner in the new cat box. (This is not a time to cheap out on used goods!) “
  • “Put three unwrapped Tootsie Rolls in a microwave-safe dish. Heat them until soft and pliable, about ten to twenty seconds. Using your fingers, shape the ends so that they are tapered and slightly curved at the ends. (Analysis of the contents of an actual cat box may be useful for research purposes.)”
  • “You may also wish to artistically drape one or more Tootsie Rolls over the side of the box”
  • “Serves one teenager, 5-6 inebriated adults, or zero sober adults.”

Litterbox Cake Accessory

My sister‘s birthday is next month – I am sooooooo tempted to make this for her. While checking out the Tacky Living site for the Litterbox Cake recipe, be sure and check out the recipe for Tic Tac Pie also – it’s a pie that requires 4 boxes of orange Tic Tacs!

UPDATE: Lonnie sent in a picture (seen below) of the litterbox cake he made! YUCK! Thanks, Lonnie!
