Would you, as a guest, be completely grossed out by a kitty litter cake?
For the uninitiated, a kitty litter cake is equal parts yellow and spice cake, crumbled up and served in a (new, unsullied!) plastic kitty litter pan. For extra ick, you can microwave Tootsie Rolls until slightly softened, and bury them in the cake.
I have a high tolerance for all things distasteful and vulgar, so this doesn’t bother me a bit.
When I moved in with FI, I brought my two cats. He’s never had cats before, and his friends have given him a good-natured hard time about how he’s now a cat person. So that’s the background.

I would do this for some other function, maybe not a wedding. I wouldn’t want to eat it myself.

I honestly would find this pretty distasteful at a wedding.
At a goofy birthday party, it’s probably ok, but at a wedding I’d just be totally grossed out.

Couldn’t you just do a kitty paw or something? I think it would be funny for a birthday party or something, but I’m not sure about a wedding…

Yeah. I’m thinking you all are right, and maybe at the welcome party the night before (Which is just a get-together in our back yard) it would be more appropriate. Or I’ll spring it on him at his next birthday party.

@annifer: I was going to suggest a rehearsal dinner or something. I personally think it’s hysterical, but my mom would freak out lol

It’s funny but for some reason even in a clean kitty litter pan I would probably pass because it poses somewhat of a mental block for me.

Some people are reeeaaaallly into their cats, huh…
Yes, best to save this for another occasion.

Eh, some people just reeealllly like to tease their FI.

Rehersal dinner! Soo funny!

I think the level of grossed-out depends on whether or not you have had cats and the real kitty litter that comes with them. As a previous kitten owner, I’d be completely disgusted.

Forget about as a guest, will your FI be mortified you chose to do this for his groom’s cake at his wedding? Mine would be furious.

The cake should reflect him. I love my dog and as much as my husband didn’t want a yorkie he loves him now, but I wouldn’t give him a yorkie cake. Plus the gross factor alone should stop you.

My Friend actually made a cake somewhat like this, but the cat was the cake. Thought that I would share. As for being wedding appropriate, it is your wedding, but I think that it may be better suited for the rehearsal.
