How to Play: Once the game initially loads, click on the blue ‘Continue’ button in the bottom right corner of the game screen to proceed. You are the one and only employee of Papa’s Cupcakeria, and you have to perform all of the complicated tasks required to produce cupcakes for your hungry customers. There are four main areas where you have to work – the Order Station, Batter Station, Bake Station and Build Station. We recommend paying close attention to the initial tutorial, as this gives you a good introduction to the various different baking areas and tasks. Use your computer mouse or touchpad to perform all of the controls in the game.
Order Station: This is the main ‘shop floor’ where you have to take the orders from your customers, who line up in an orderly queue in your store. You can take all of the orders in a row and then get baking, or take one order at a time – it’s entirely up to you. Click on the green ‘Take Order’ button beside each customer to begin processing their order. Each customer fills out a detailed ticket in the top right corner of the game screen – this is the blueprint that you must follow.

Batter Station: Here, you have to click on the customer’s desired cupcake tray (there is a choice of 4), and then go to the cake mix area. Here, you have to fill the tray with cake mix as close to halfway as possible. Click and hold down the arrow button on the ‘mix squeezing gun’, and then release the click when there is enough cake mix in the tray.
Bake Station: This is where you put your cakes into the oven. Click and drag the cupcakes into one of the free spots in the large oven to begin the baking procedure. As the cupcakes are baking, the orange bar adjacent to the cakes fills up slowly. Once this orange bar reaches the white line, your cakes are done, and it’s time to move them to the next stage by clicking and dragging them to the green check mark in the bottom right corner of the game screen.
Build Station: Each customer wants a variety of different toppings on their cupcakes. Closely follow their order ticket in the top right corner, and add their chosen toppings in the correct order, from bottom to top. For example, they might want a cupcake with chocolate icing, rainbow sprinkles, and three cherries. Make sure you add the toppings to the cupcake exactly that order. Make sure to spread the toppings evenly all over the cupcake. Once you complete the order, drag the order ticket to the finish marker on the right hand side of the game screen.
Once the order is complete, your customer tastes the finished product. If the cupcake is to their satisfaction, you score points out of 100, and earn valuable tips. However, if you messed up the order in any way, you are docked points, and receive fewer tips. You can use the virtual income earned to upgrade your store. The better your diner is, the more customers you receive. As you progress through the game, more icings, decorations, and cupcake choices are introduced. Enjoy!
