At my school, each teacher is responsible for providing treats for the staff three times a year. Treat day is always on Wednesday. This year I saw that April Fool's Day fell on a Wednesday and I knew I could finally make my cake.
I called my mom to let her know what I was doing.
Here's our conversation":
Me: "I'm making a litter box cake for my work."
Mom: "So it's going to be covered in camo duct tape?"
Me: "Huh??? Oh, not letterbox...litter box!"
Mom: "I guess you can tell what I'm thinking about." while laughing.
I gathered together the ingredients and put the cake together. After microwaving the Tootsie Rolls I had to pinch the ends to make them look like real poop. As I sat there pinching, bending, and burying I couldn't help but giggle aloud. Some of the poops were microwaved a little too long and melted a bit much, these ones ended up looking like diarrhea...EWWWWW!
Would you want to eat this????
On my treat day I brought my box of kitty litter and poop to work and left it on the treat table for all to enjoy. Some of my co-workers dove in with gusto, others were so put off by the presentation, they just couldn't look at it, let alone eat it. A few managed to get past their squeamishness and gave it a try, much to their delight. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the comments I received throughout the day. However, at the day, there was cake left over, which NEVER happens at a school, so I guess my little joke went as planned.
Now I need to start planning next year's "treat." Maybe a camouflage duct tape cake is just the thing I need to make next.
