Cake Doodle

Cake! Seriously, who doesn’t love cake? There are times when nothing is better than a slice of chocolate cake and a tall glass of frosty cold milk, but who wants to go through all the fuss of baking and frosting a cake? All that effort and mess, and don’t even mention all the calories. No, no, my cake-loving friends, trust me, your kitchen and jeans will appreciate the deliciously digital and fuss-free baked delights of Cake Doodle.

Cake Doodle is basically what you’d get if you combined an extremely simplified version of Cooking Mama with the very, very similar More Cupcakes. In other words, it’s not really a game so much as a kid’s cooking toy. You start off by selecting a recipe. Whether your fancy is tickled by carrot cake or red velvet, the 8 different recipes have got you covered.

Cake Doodle

All of the recipes are slightly interactive, requiring you to pour, crack, grate, and stir at the appropriate times. Unlike real baking, however, it’s impossible to spill or mess up. Of course, this means there’s no real challenge or point to the baking mini-game, so if your real passion is decorating, just pick the instant cake option and get to it.

You have a variety of cake styles to choose from, simple sheet cakes to elaborate three-tiered topsy-turvy wedding cakes. This is where amateur decorators can have fun experimenting on cakes you wouldn’t usually try at home, and you have a fair number of tools at your disposal.

Some of the tips and toppers are decent, but many look very awkwardly pasted onto the cake. Decorating a cake with your fingertip can take a bit getting used to, and drawing in fine details is especially challenging. I would have liked the ability to decorate each tier individually, as fancier cakes inevitably got smudged up by my clumsy finger painting. Once the cake is fully decorated, you have the option of eating it in big calorie-free bites, saving it, or sending it to a friend via email.

Overall, it’s a cute app, but it doesn’t offer a whole lot to do. It’s just barely a game, and as a cake-decorating tool, it’s only so-so. Unless you’ve got very small kids involved, there’s not a whole lot of replay value, which makes this a questionable purchase. I could see Cake Doodle being worthwhile if it were free, but I don’t really see why anyone would pay for this.
