Well you may have mastered baking and decorating single-layer cakes, but tiered cakes are a whole other story. The Cake Stacker app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone to provide you with instructions on how to build tiered cakes. Not only will you learn how to build them in a professional way but you'll also find all kinds of great ideas and inspirations on combinations. The fact that you are given a 3D preview of the cakes really helps you understand what the finished product will look like.
The Cake Stacker app has a number of great uses. While you can use this app to learn about building the perfect tiered cake if you happen to be a professional baker this app is great to use in consultations. As you speak with your client you can then enter in the calculations and build a 3D model of the cake for them to view. The app takes into account the portion size and servings you need so it gives you an accurate preview. You can even build a couple of different cakes so your client can then make their choice.
The app just recently underwent a few user interface enhancements and minor bug fixes resulting in better stability and performance. The app scores a solid 3.5 out of five stars but it's obvious users would still like to see more added to this app. Because the app isn't exactly cheap, it's only natural that it should blow customers away, which it isn't doing.
