Cat litter cake tastes delicious – looks like cat shit

Cat litter cake tastes delicious - looks like cat shit

Me and my spouse have a birthday related tradition – each birthday the hero of the day gets to wish for look a for the birthday cake he/she will receive. So far the realized wishes have included for example Spiderman, an elk, Hobbes, etc. One thing that never crossed my mind though was to wish for a cake which would look like cat litter. However it seems, that the imagination of some people do not seem to have limits. Here is a cake baked by Andrea James, which indeed does look like cat litter.

The detailed instructions on how to bake your own cat litter cake can be found from here (particularly noteworthy is the instruction to use fresh, NON USED litterbox)

Civet coffee is processed through the digestion of a civet cat


This is the worlds rarest type of coffee, and only 500kg of it is produced each year. What makes the coffee particularly special, is te taste it gathers while going through the digestion of a civet cat.

Civet cats are wild animals, which roam the coffee plantations in Sumatra, picking and eating only the most delicious coffee berries from the local plantations. The droppings of the civet cat are thereafter collected from the area, from which this very special type of coffee is later produced.

Cive coffee is available from example this web shop at the price of about $40,- for 57 grams of the delicacy.
