Cake Calculators

Your life just got a whole lot easier with CakeFlix Cake Calculators…

Fed up of having to do tricky calculations to make sure you’ve got your ingredients just right? Or finding that you’ve made far too much ganache… or worse, not enough? Worry not – our cake calculators are here to take the stress out of your decorating day.

When our members told us an online cake calculator would be super handy – we made four! We even have a couple more in the pipeline. With the exception of the Portion Calculator all have been put together using the data provided by our super-user madeitwithlove.

We hope you love them as much as we do. Let us know what you think via the contact us page or if you have an idea for any other calculators, hey, even better!

Portion Calculator

So you know the size and shape of your cake, but how many portions does that provide? Find out with our Portion Calculator – hurrah!

Note: It is entirely up to you the depth of each portion. If you have a 5″+ deep cake then you can split through the middle to double your portions.

Simply enter the details such as shape, width, depth and how thick you’d like your sugarpaste (fondant!) and we’ll calculate exactly how much you’ll need.
