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

Today I have for you a cute tag for you that I made with the Lemonade Stand stamp set. I have to say that I LOVE this stamp set.  I find myself using it all the time. 

 I started with a tag base that I purchased at my local Michaels.  Then I cut 3 different patterned papers and edged them with Tim Holtz distressing ink.  Then I stamped and colored my image as well as stamped my setiment.  Then I added some ribbon to the tag.

Although this tag isn't a Christmas tag, you could easly change the image and the setiment for a quick and easy Christmas gift tag.
