Is that a dirty cat box????

So at first glance most of you would probably guess that this is a dirty cat box.....well you would be WRONG!!!

This is actually a cake.  Yes thats right....a cake.  My mom brought this recipe home from work as a joke and we decided that we were going to make it as her bosses birthday cake.  Hope he likes it. 

Well for those of you that would like to make this cake yourself here are the directions:

You will need:
1 box of german chocolate cake mix
1 box of white cake mix
1 box of instant vanilla pudding
1 pack of vanilla sandwich cookies
green food coloring
tootsie rolls

You will also need:
1 brand new cat litter box
brand new cat box liner
brand new cat scoop

Make the 2 cakes as you normally would.  While those are baking make your pudding and let cool.  Chop your cookies in the blender and set aside 1 cup of cookie crumbs.

Cruble your cakes in a bowl and add  half of the cookie crumbs that are left and add enough of the pudding to make it moist but not soggy.

Then spread into the liner that is in the cat box.

Melt a few tootsie rolls slightly in the microwave and shape into cat poop.  Place ontop of the cake.  Sprinkle the rest of the cookie crumbs ontop of the cake.

With the cup of cookie crumbs that were set to the side, add a few drops of the green food coloring and mix well.  Top off your cake with the green cookie mix.

Using your cat scoop...serve and enjoy

Diaper Cake for Kyrie's Baby Shower

My boyfriend's cousin and his wife are expecting a little boy in Jan.  I decided to make her a diaper cake instead of just wrapping up a box of diapers.  I have made several diaper cakes in the past but I have to say that this one is my favorite.

It was very simple to make.  I didnt use quite the whole box of diapers so I will be giving her those too.  Hope it is a big hit at the baby shower.

Altered Shelves

I was at the dollar tree yesterday and came across these natural wood shelves...instantly I thought of turning them into an altered shelf.  So I bought one and took it home and started to play.  This is my first attempt at it....

So I love how it turned out and I showed it to my aunt who asked me to make her 3 of them.  One for each of her granddaughters.  So this morning I went back to dollar tree and picked up a few more.  Here are the 3 I made for her granddaughers.  She loved how they turned out and so do I.  I cant wait to make more.

I hope I have inspired you to create your own altered shelf.
