Time Management Games: Cake Mania Series

Yes, I looove time management games. Time Management games are games in which you perform a series of tasks or processes as quickly as possible e.g. manage/cook/serve at a restaurant, stock/run a supermarket, babysit, manage a hotel, build/decorate houses. When I finish a TMG I love, I Google trying to find more like it. Also, when I say 'finish', I mean get the gold/expert score on every single level!

Today's game is...

...  the Cake Mania Series

This is the series that started my love of time management games!!

Cake Mania is a name and also a series of cooking and time management video games developed and published by Sandlot Games in 2006.

The first game, Cake Mania: Keep Jill from getting shutout by the new MegaMart in this fast-click baking frenzy. She came back from culinary school to find her grandparents' shop on thin ice. Starting in her home kitchen, she's aiming to save the day. Help Jill bake and decorate customized cakes for each customer as you rebuild the family's dying business. You'll have to earn enough money to upgrade the kitchen and keep the bakery open. Get to baking!

- More than 45 levels, Custom kitchen upgrades, and 4 unique settings.

  • Cake Mania: Back to the Bakery (the first spinoff)
  • Cake Mania 2 (sequel to the original. It has different features from the original one, like different locations, slightly different gameplay, new customers, and a new design)
