Summary: This was the biggest disappointment of a game I've ever played. I loved Cake Mania 1 and could not wait for Cake Mania 2 to come out. I finished the game in less than one day. The game was way to easy and absolutely no fun. I didn't even have to upgrade any equipment or buy any additional toppings to meet the monthly goal. I did buy the best oven and frosting machine along with the fast shoes simple because I got tired of the cooking time.
Summary: I so wanted to love this game, I have waited for it for months. I loved the original CM, when I read previews of this one I had such high hopes. I got the game, played it, defeated it in two days, never once losing a round. I don't say that to toot my own horn but to say that this game is just way too easy. There is none of the challenge of the original game and it is dreadfully slow. The first "year" of the game is like the first month of the old game times twelve.
