The first of a seriously fun series of TM games.. I've played through the whole series at least twice and I have nothing but fond memories of it. This is a replayable TM game that in my opinion is worth more than the hours trial!
If you like TM games I suggest you try them, I love every single one of them. Even this being the first it is still a very good standalone. I find that the levels are hectic enough to get you addicted (and flustered when you mess up an order!) but as the difficulty increases, so does your cash! Which of course means upgrades (faster ovens, faster shoes etc) make the hecticness bearable and fun. I also have to admit that the cheesy 80's soundtrack, however dated is very addictive aha!
I know many people don't play TM games for the storyline, but I find Jill's whole story very cute, I love how each game is like a different chapter in her life and this of course is the very beginning where Jill is trying to raise enough money to buy back her grandparents bakery.
Bottom line: If you like games like diner dash, jet set go, and *insert fun time management game here* or if you're just getting into time management games I'd suggest a download of the trial at least :).

It's a classic!
Wow it seems forever ago that I first played the first Cake Mania game! The very first of it's kind that I ever played.
They are all fun, but sequels tend to get progressively more fun a they add new features to them, which is why this one doesn't have all 5 stars, because the others get better ^_^.
The graphics are cute, simple, but better than most TMGs tend to be. And also like most TMGs, it's a bit short.

No matter how great of a player you are, this game puts the frustration to the max. I love great challenges and I love cake. This game was my very first Time management game. Try it and see if this is challenging enough for you.

A good game
This was the first of the Cake Mania games. It's fast paced, and easy to become flustered and make a cake that is a mistake. You can buy upgrades to help out making more money, which is what your goal is. Also you can buy upgrades to make your life easier. It's a fun game

A truly fun game that entertains

I've adored this game since it was first released, and have replayed it numerous times. Highly recommended!
The main drawpoints relate to its age: since it's fairly old, the graphics aren't as impressive & it can be a little tedious compared to the sequels.

missed this game
I bought this game years ago and enjoyed it for hours and hours but somehow i could not find the game in my computer. I am currently playing the cake mania 2, 3 and main street. I missed the first one. do i really have to buy it again?

I have only good memories to associate with Cake Mania. One of the reasons BFG's got my attention. This was a pretty new and cool way of playing games back when this original came out and it rocked. Obviously, it still does for it to have so many sequels! You ever want to try to be the cupcake queen? Try getting a little messy, or pre-cooking to keep up with your customers. You get to make cupcakes and watch your business grow as you upgrade. It always gets more challenging as you go, and you'll feel like you've had a full day at work after one of the harder frustrating levels. Great replay value ... makes me think of playing it again!

I find the game fun and addictive. It also makes me crave cake. I give it 8 out of 10, a perfect beginning to an amazing series.
