Grossology 2014

It’s a tradition!  For this dinner party only grossly disgusting foods are allowed on the menu!

  This year kept all our favorite classics and added few new fun ones…

copyright-katherine-marie-102014Cheddar Chex Mix looks almost exactly like Friskies Cat Treats!  Ewwwww!

copyright-katherine-marie-102014aThis was our favorite new edition this year!  DIRTY DISH WATER PUNCH! (Idea via HERE!) When you mix fizzy soda with green sherbert it makes realistic looking soapy bubbles.  I bought a new dish pan and accessories to make it ultra realistic. YUM!!! DRINK UP!

copyright-katherine-marie-102014bThe dog bones we super easy— Scooby Snacks of course!  I bought a brand new toilet seat cover for the commode cake!  Revolting!

copyright-katherine-marie-102014eThe the gross beyond gross winner were these DIRTY ASHTRAY CUPCAKES!  I never imagined that I’d find a use for those completely inappropriate candy cigarettes!  The “ashes” are just crushed double stuffed Oreo cookies.  Idea via Pinterest HERE!

copyright-katherine-marie-102014cThe tasty roundup!

I didn’t take a picture of the “kitty litter crunch” this year because, quite frankly, it looked too realistic.  We used spice cake as the base and melted Tootsie rolls for the cat droppings.  An official recipe– HERE!

My very soul is wedded to it,

and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth
seeking the successive autumns.”
