Cost A Cake Pro

Following hot on the heels of the Cost A Cake (Free) came a Professional version of our popular cake making app.

Built from the ground-up for Apple and Android devices, Cost A  Cake Pro extended on everything it’s forerunner provided and threw a lot of new functionality on top.

Working closely with the client, we designed a series of workflows which allow the user to store lists of ingredients and other cake-making sundries in a virtual pantry, the contents of which can be combined to produce any number of recipes.

All pantry items are editable, meaning prices can be changed at any time to give users an instant estimate of what their products cost to make.

In addition, these recipes can be brought together as user-generated quotes, allowing cake makers and bakers the freedom to quote for work wherever they are – provided they have their mobile device with them of course.
