I'm not eating that

SpringcurlSpringcurl Posts: 8,002Registered Users
I went to a potluck last night and a woman made a cake that looked like a litter box... with logs of chocolate Frosting scattered around the top.

It wasn't a theme potluck. She just made it. No one ate it. Why would someone do that?

    I've made that cake before. The recipe I used called for Tootsie Roll turds. They looked very realistic. It was served with a pooper scooper out of a litter box. It was a hit!

    Some people think it's fun to make edible creative (read weird) things like that, but I wouldn't eat it either. I would do a dirt pile with gummy worms, but no litter box. :pukeright:

    I REALLY don't get the litterbox as cake trend. The very idea makes me gag, which is not conducive to eating dessert.

    Some of the pics I've seen of these "cakes" online have been very, uh, realistic. VERY. 'Nuff said.

    The flowerpot with pudding in the pot and Oreo "dirt" on top and gummy worms was ... okay. Silly, but at least it didn't make me want to vomit. That's the very least we should be expecting from a dessert offering, no?

    I feel sorry for someone so out of touch they would bring something like that to an event where they weren't 100% sure it would go over well. ETA: or maybe she really thought it would be a hit, which is even sadder.

    Desserts should not be sad!

    I have two cats and I clean their box twice daily. I don't need to look at an edible facsimile.

    Gross, I wouldn't have eaten that either. I don't understand the whole 'let's make edible things look like inedible things'. I also don't like when people bake things in items that haven't been tested for food safety, like flower pots, litter boxes, etc. I don't really eat potluck anyway, but yeah, gross. Making food that looks literally like poo? I don't get it.

    It's not baked in a litter pan. It's made from boxed cake mix, pudding, vanilla sandwich cookies, food coloring and Tootsie Rolls.

    Yup, that's the one.

    I'm weighing my pity for this person against the strength of my gag reflex. The reflex is winning.

    I don't blame anyone for not eating that. Not one bit. That's just gross.

    OK, that's nasty - as much as I love chocolate, I don't think I could eat that either! I didn't picture it being that bad.

    What's especially gross about it is it looks like a catbox that hasn't been cleaned in quite some time. A regularly cleaned catbox looks nothing like that. This factors in extra squickiness for me. *shudder*

    That one in the picture sure looks like it's in a litter pan, or something similarly not intended for food. Either way, it's gross. Why try to make food look like poo?

    riley I think it's baked in a regular pan and then crumbled into a litter pan. So at least there is no burning plastic on top of the cat poo.

    I guess I can kinda see it for a Halloween party or some other theme, but yeah, I would not be lining up to eat that even at a Halloween party. There are creative cakes you can do that are not quite so repulsive.

    Because it's funny. Because it's gross. Because it's unexpected.

    I made that cake for a friend's going away party. We were all in our 20s and LOTS of adult beverages were consumed prior to digging into the cake. People loved it.

    As with litter box cake and all other foods, you don't have to eat it! It's just for fun.

    I have to agree.. before seeing the picture I thought folks were just being uptight, but now that I see it.. ew. It's looking a little too real.

    Maybe a cat hoarder wouldn't mind eating that though..

    I was thinking, the only way this would be a hit dessert would be the right crowd, probably on the younger side, and definitely with alcohol involved!

    We had a downstairs neighbor many years ago that was just...nasty. Their house was disgusting and the catbox smell from their 3 cats that they didn't clean up after radiated up into our apartment.

    She made a cake like this.

    While it may be cute to some people I forever associate that cake with those people and the stench and filth in their apartment. Even after they moved out and new carpet had been put in and the walls painted it STILL smelled (we went in to check out what they had done to the place and were knocked over by the stink).

    I can't even... no. :lol:
