You'll also get a guide to torting your cake to get that perfect finish and portion cutting guides for all round and square cakes between 4 inches and 12 inches.

"Why has no one done one of these before?! It's so simple to use yet probably one of the most useful apps for me as a cake maker. No more waste, no more guessing and the guides are brilliant!"

Accurate Fondant, Ganache and Buttercream Quantities in 3 Simple Steps

Working with either inches or centimetres, the GanacheUlator+ will give you accurate icing quantities in 3 easy steps. Simply enter:

  1. Your cake's shape: Round, Square or Rectangular
  2. The dimensions: diameter (for round) or length/width (for square/rectangle) and then the height
  3. Number of fill layers

That's all you need to do...then just click 'GanacheUlate' and let the GanacheUlator+ do the calculations.

@Be Star. the GanacheUlator was released on to the app store today, so you should find it there now (we've helpfully added the link at the top of the page now!) Let us know what you think and don't forget to add a review.

I'd love to get the GanacheUlator+ app. I can't find it in the App Store. How can I get it? Thanks in advance

I was lucky enough to get a chance to test this app. I make cakes for a living and can highly recommend this for 3 reasons.1. you get to know just how much icing you need on any sized cake, 2. the tutorials are brilliant even you think you know what you are doing already! 3. there are 3 great recipes for your ganache, buttercream and fondant - and they actually work for me! Oh and the portion guide too, that's four :)
