Most people love baked goods, especially cake pops, which are quite possibly heaven on a stick. The Cake Pop Maker app is a food games for iPhone app that lets you fill your sweet tooth in a calorie-free virtual way.
This game offers users plenty of ways to get creative with their cake pops. You begin by choosing your batter and there are more than 20 of them. Pick from such tasty options as vanilla, lemon, blueberry, confetti cake, strawberry, and more.
After baking your cake pops it's time to decorate them which is where I find the real fun begins. There is no shortage of options when it comes to toppings and decorations, so you’ll be able to create some rather professional looking results.
It should be noted that all the decorations are in hi-res so they are also very sharp and realistic-looking. All your cake pops can be saved to your Photo Library or if you just can’t wait you can go ahead and "eat it."
The Cake Pop Maker is free to download and use, however just like the majority in this category you'll find that many of the decorations and options require in-app purchases.
Purchases range from $0.99 to $12.99 depending on what you want to unlock. The app scores very high with users getting four out of five stars.
The Gaming Experience
I've played plenty of these baking styled games and the Cake Pop Maker definitely holds its own, offering plenty of options. It is also extremely user-friendly. You'll be able to really customize your cake pop, choosing the coating, the decoration, the cake pop stick, and more.
I get that this app is meant for kids but I find it incredibly addictive and have a hard time putting it down. For kids though it’s a great experience thanks to the fact there is little to no reading required, the game controls are simple, and the app is fluid and smooth.
I have to point out the user interface as well, which not only looks great but also performs well. I know that Cake Pop Maker features a number of in-app purchases but I also see why they can be worth it, the creation of these tiny treats can just be so fun.
