@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 :)
