This instructable covers how to make a cake that looks like your cat mauled it. I am not sure why this needed to be made, but here it is!
Alternate title: how to make a cake that looks like you dropped it in the grass. The "hair" turned out a little green. This is what happens when you don't plan ahead. :P
During brainstorming of this cake, the office came up with both cotton candy and hard sugar being good hair substitutes. I wish I could have found regular cotton candy and done that on chocolate frosting. That would have made excellent hairballs.
