What is Cakenote?

The Cakenote web app was built to help amateur and professional cake decorators construct, design, price and manage their cakes and customers.  

Some of Cakenote's Features

  • Design cakes by combining individual elements on a canvas.

  • Choose from a growing library of assets that include a wide range of boards, cake sizes, decorations, construction elements as well as textiles and patterns.

  • Automatically price your cake as you design it.

  • Add your very own elements to be used for cake designs.

  • Automatically calculate the number of servings of your design based on predefined portion sizes.

  • Save designs as templates to be used on other designs.

  • Automatically calculate flavour and coating pricing based on cake volume.

  • Create orders with printable tags for easy kitchen operation.

  • Set your preferred metric system for measuring size.

  • Sample business documents (coming). 

  • Manage a library of Ingredients and Recipes.

  • Much, much more.

These are just a number of the things you can do with Cakenote as of writing this. We constantly be adding new elements and features.
