When you hear “cake” and “frosting” and think “frozen cake” you probably think of frosting.
But in fact, the frosting on a urinal or toilet bowl is actually cake.
In a recent interview with the BBC, the cake fader, an app that allows you to quickly and easily customize your urinal bowl cake, explained how she created it.
She explained that when you first hear “cake,” you think of a cookie or a cake.
But the fader is a cake-fader.
In the original Urinal cakes, she says, the bowl was just a little piece of paper that you put down in the corner of the urinal and then you’d use a spoon to spread out the frostings.
But the faders are designed so you can easily and quickly add more frosting with the flick of a finger.
You can use different frosting colors, she said, or you can add a cake shape.
And if you want to add some sparkle to your cake, you can even add a little frosting to the outside of the bowl.
The fader app is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
I like it!
You can order it for $1.99 for the entire bowl or $1 for each cup.
The Urinal cake is an ideal option for any time of year.
