The most popular cake-making app on the market could be on the verge of losing its licence, but a UK-based chef is hoping to stop that from happening.
The BBC’s Food Network host Nick Ferrari said the app, Cake Wars, was “being hijacked” by people who are “liking the look” of it, but that he “wouldn’t be surprised” if they started “sabotaging” it.
“I don’t know how many of them are doing that but they’ve been doing it,” Mr Ferrari told the BBC.
“And they’re like, ‘Well, I’m going to start making cake wars, like this.’
And that’s what they’re doing.”
“They’ve already got a recipe for a cupcake and a cup of icing and a bit of cake and a few different things they want to add, and I would be surprised if they didn’t start sabotaging it.”
Mr Ferrari, who is also the creator of the Cake Wars TV show, said he would “stop the cake war” if he had a licence.
“If we could get it back to the BBC we would be happy to do that,” he said.
“It’s a great app, great way of entertaining your family and friends and you can’t stop people from liking it, so why shouldn’t they?”
I would stop the Cake War from being the worst thing that ever happened.

Cake Wars is an app that people are actually enjoying, and if we could put it on our app, it’d be the best thing ever,” Mr Ferrarisaid.
