From the Cardapio Launchpad page:

- then use the following instructions from this Webupd8 article:
So download the Cardapio launcher from HERE, extract it and place the file under ~/.local/share/applications/ (important: if you don't place it here, it will disappear once you restart your computer). ".local" is a hidden folder in your home directory so press CTRL + H to see it. Then drag the file to the Unity Launcher.
