Hi there, I got the app on my android phone, but I'm struggling with one thing - actually sending the quotes to people.It says on the app info that I can do that, but I have yet to work out how and what the process is.I'm sure it should (hopefully!) be really simple but I've tried everything I can think of and need to get it right asap.Got a few people waiting on their quotes! Also, how about the barcode scanner option where you just scan in your ingredient? Just an idea!! Much less of a priority than quote sending! Thanks so much!!

Trying to figure out how to get refund!I emailed request (since, of course, the refund policy disappears as soon as you click off of the install screen) within the 15 minutes of paying and downloading.Have a gluten free and all natural baking business and it is too complicated to adjust pricing!It's just as easy to sit down with pen & paper!The app calculated a carrot cake at $200 - there is no way.REFUND PLEASE!!!

Hello, this is so helpful, thank you. Will you consider adding a print function, so you can just print out one page with all your costings on, would really help, cheers x

ok so i have had this appfor a few months now but i still for the life of me cannot work out how to write the pounds and pence in this app when adding your own ingredients so for instance iwanted to add fresh lemons to the ingredientsi can do thatuntil it comes to the prices name ok unitsok gbp this is where i have the problemit shows as £0.000 so howwrite do i put 30p in because weather im trying to add £1.50 or 30p it does not make sense when you click done and add the ingredient you get something silly like 3p for 2 lemons

Would love to use this app but it is only in British pounds....can use add an option for us please? I live in Georgia!
Zane - 4-Apr-13 @ 11:32 AM
Is this in American measurements like lbs, inches, ounces, cups, tsp, etc? If not, is there one out there?
Zane - 4-Apr-13 @ 11:11 AM
I have downloaded the app for the iPhone, but find the screen too small. Are you bringing out a version that can be used on a computers (both Windows and Apple).
Kotek - 31-Mar-13 @ 12:54 PM
Iv used the online tool several times before and find it very good but now it keeps jumping to the app store despite me being on my laptop not phone/android!!! Does the online tool no longer work?? Its very frustrating
Lou - 25-Mar-13 @ 9:20 PM
I would like this tool, but would prefer to use it on my computer and not my iphone.Is it available for computer?
TasteE - 21-Mar-13 @ 6:19 PM
Can you tell me why your Cakeometer works in fl ounces/ounces but when I use your online version of the Cakeulator it works in ml/grams?
lizzie1000 - 20-Mar-13 @ 4:22 PM
Hello I am a tad confused on how to use this... Say 2kg of butter is £2.99. But I only want to use 500g of it. Can I work the new price on here?? Just I have tried on the example but it is not making sense. Please help!!

When will this be on google play to purchase?
bev - 17-Feb-13 @ 8:27 PM
@ One off Occasions. On the mobile app you can save all your quotes and recipes. It's out on iphone/ipad/ipod touch and will soon be available on Android. Look for it in the app store.
CakeBaker - 28-Jan-13 @ 12:47 PM
Hi, Am I able to save my quotes to my own fold, for example. So that I don't have to input the same quantities each time? Thanks, Donna
One Off Occasions - 28-Jan-13 @ 12:38 PM
I love using this app it's so flexible,is there any way to link some of your guides to it like a reference library so I can reference back to ribbon guide while pricing

I'm an android user, and would like to know when this app will be available on google play for purchase. I've asked before but I've yet to get a response.

Hi, I would like to buy the app,but I would like to put in my own prices and ingredients as I live in Nigeria. Is this possible?
Bubbles - 24-Nov-12 @ 3:25 PM

Mtrs TPot - 14-Nov-12 @ 9:10 PM
Help how do I change the cakeulator from grammes to ounzrs????
aggie - 13-Nov-12 @ 9:43 PM
We are working on a new version as we speak with multiple items per quote, cups et as a unit of measurement and print/save. We will update you when it is released. We will keep on refining the CakeUlator. Thanks for being patient.
Cakebaker - 10-Oct-12 @ 5:36 AM
This is brilliant! Any chance you can add a print or save tab?
Kustard - 8-Oct-12 @ 12:14 PM
This app is great-I hope :) Once you have created a recipe and saved it, do the prices within the saved recipe update when I download new data if something has changed? Thanks
Caz - 7-Oct-12 @ 4:31 PM
@Rachel. You can do all this with the cakeulator app! Many items and tasks such as gum paste, ribbon, decorations and decorating time are already inbuilt - and you can add any other items and tasks that you think may be missing. So problem solved!
CakeBaker - 5-Oct-12 @ 2:54 PM
I would love to have a similar tool for pricing custom designed cakes factoring materials such fondant, gumpaste, ribbon, beads, special display rental fees and decorating time/labor...anything in the works?
Rachel - 4-Oct-12 @ 3:00 PM
Regarding the profit box - what would you recommend?
Lesley - 2-Oct-12 @ 8:13 PM
LOVE the new app!!Only thing is I can't figure out how to combine two recipes into one quote - for example 12 cupcakes and then italian meringue icing, or an order with a large cake as well as cupcakes - is it possible to do that?Most of my orders are more than one thing so a combined quote is mostly what I need :o)
cakesbykatieadams - 27-Sep-12 @ 1:16 PM
@ Lulubelle. No the prices are all in pence. So 0.15 is not 15p but 0.15 of a penny. Eg. Polenta is 0.15 per g - making a 500g bag 75p. Good quality free range eggs were £1.52 per half dozen on our last check - making 25.17p about right per egg. Let us know if you're still struggling.
Lulubelle - 27-Sep-12 @ 10:27 AM
Hi, just downloaded the app and love it but struggling to work out addinG my own prices as I can't work out the units for each item - and is the price in pounds or pence. For most things it looks like pounds (as in 0.15 being 15p) but not eggs ( they look like 25.07 but when I work it out that's 25p per egg) Can you help explain please? Thanks
