Whoooo Hooo ! Halloween!!

I love Halloween. Perhaps it stems from my love to be somebody else. I love masks, make-up... pretending. My mother wanted me to go into acting, because I was always "putting on" as she called it. (When I was ten I would adopt a scottish accent and pretend she was a distant Aunt I was visiting when we were in public. Which went over well until whoever I was speaking to found out I was telling stories. Mom didn't find it amusing until many years later.)I started on AOL years ago as a roleplayer. Creating charcters for chatrooms like The Red Dragon Inn. Back in those days I was paying by the minute and I am sure I single handedly payed all the AOL employees their saleries. These days I tend to limit my ecentricities to dressing up yearly and acting as a costume designer and make-up artist for friends. I am already quite booked this year.

So... in the spirit of Halloween (pardon the pun) I will be liberally sprinkling my journal for the next month with recipes, jokes, graphics, ideas... and whatever else strikes my fancy in honor of Halloween. :) If you like it... snag it. If you have something of your own... leave a comment, or a link to your own journal, or send me an email... or a link else where. Whatever. I love it. I love it all....

Moohahahahah....(okay... sorry... I am geting out of hand here.)


So anyway.... the first thing I am gonna share is gross. If you have a weak stomach... don't do it. Having a party? Wanna gross out your friends? Here's just one of many yummy recipes sure to make your guests stop dead in thier tracks and wonder just what exactly is wrong with you.

This is called Kitty Litter Cake...

Yeah. You heard me.

No real kitty litter... it is a cake, but looks bad enough to fool anyone. Totally edible... totally disgusting. lol.

Here's the recipe:

Cake Ingredients:

1 box spice or German chocolate cake mix
1 box of white cake mix
1 package white sandwich cookies
1 large package vanilla instant pudding mix
A few drops green food coloring
12 small Tootsie Rolls or equivalent

1 NEW cat-litter box
1 NEW cat-litter box liner
1 NEW pooper scooper

Prepare and bake cake mixes, according to directions, in any size pan.
Prepare pudding and chill.
Crumble cookies in small batches in blender or food processor. Add a few drops of green food coloring to 1 cup of cookie crumbs. Mix with a fork or shake in a jar. Set aside.When cakes are at room temperature, crumble them into a large bowl. Toss with half of the remaining cookie crumbs and enough pudding to make the mixture moist but not soggy. Place liner in litter box and pour in mixture.Unwrap 3 Tootsie Rolls and heat in a microwave until soft and pliable. Shape the blunt ends into slightly curved points. Repeat with three more rolls. Bury the rolls decoratively in the cake mixture. Sprinkle remaining white cookie crumbs over the mixture, then scatter green crumbs lightly over top.Heat 5 more Tootsie Rolls until almost melted. Scrape them on top of the cake and sprinkle with crumbs from the litter box. Heat the remaining Tootsie Roll until pliable and hang it over the edge of the box. Place box on a sheet of newspaper and serve with scooper.
