How to Play

Merge identical pastries and confections to form new ones. Keep merging to earn more income and unlock new recipes.

  • Starting the Game
    • Select the blue play button on the bottom center of the screen to begin the game.
    • The game will automatically begin the tutorial the first time you begin.
    • Your web browser automatically saves your progress, income and high score.
  • Game Controls
    • Desktop
      • Use your mouse left click and drag to merge cakes.
      • You can also open up the shop section in the lower right corner or accept the cash prize awards for unlocking achievements in the lower left corner.
    • Touchscreen devices
      • Tap and swipe to merge.
    • The game has a sound control button in the lower left.
    • The reset button is located near the shop button. Be careful not to accidentally hit it.
  • Game Play
    • Interface
      • Toggle the audio through the sound button on the lower left corner of the screen.
      • Below the sound button is the achievement button. Select this to view your achievements.
      • On the bottom right corner is the shop. Use this to buy unlocked dishes,.
    • Basic
      • Merge each similar baked good or confection to form a new recipe.
      • Keep merging until no valid pairs can be made.
    • Spawning new desserts
      • You gain a new low-value dessert every 10 seconds. This is helpful early in the game, but becomes somewhat annoying when you get earnings up to millions or billions per second as you keep having to clear the board of low-value deserts.
      • You can speed this up by left clicking or tapping at the tray button on the lower center corner of the screen until the timer reaches 0.
      • Repeat as many times as desired or until you run out of space, then merge treats to make empty spaces.
    • Space
      • Once all the slots have been filled, the game will not spawn new desserts until a free space is made.
      • If your run out of space and valid moves, it’s game over. This is almost impossible to do without trying to.
      • You gain a new space each time you level up. The game maxes out at level 36 with an 8×5 grid containing 40 spaces.
      • The bar above you shows both your current level and how many merges you must make to reach the next level.
    • Income and bonuses
      • You gain a set amount of money each second from each desert.
      • This amount is determined by the value of the desserts in your field at any given time.
      • The more high value desserts you have, the greater your income.
      • Sometimes you get a random bonus dessert instead of a low-value one.
        • These come in trays with bows on top of their lids.
        • The dessert they provide is randomly generated. They typically skew toward the lower end and are only available in the range of the deserts you have already unlocked.
    • Merging Strategy
      • Some merge games offer sublinear, linear, or greater than linear reward for merging pieces together.
      • This game offers a greater than linear income stream from merges.
        • At lower levels it appears linear, with merging 2 level 1 snacks creating a single level 2 snack that earns the same amount as the two individual snacks combined eared (e.g. 2 per second is the same as 1 per second plus 1 per second).
        • As you get to higher earning snacks the difference is greater than linear.
        • Merging two grape biscuits together which earn 600 each (or 1,200 combined) creates a chocobiscut which earns 1,300.
        • We publish a table of pastry earnings below.
    • Shop
      • You spend your income buying new desserts which can also be merged.
        • While the desert shop is open the game is paused, so you are not earning additional income.
        • With the above in mind, sometimes it makes sense to make a quick choice in the store and order many of the same item so you can quickly merge them and keep leveling up while earning more income.
      • Buying desserts can help accelerate the process of earning more money, since once you merge them, you’re earning more from the resulting higher-value dish.
        • It will also help you reduce clutter by helping merge other dishes faster.
        • You will need to merge and buy dishes to advance quickly in this game.
        • You can only buy desserts that you’ve already unlocked.
          • The store allows you to purchase 3 dishes behind the most expensive dish you have unlocked, so you always want to have one square you are pushing toward the best dish you can so that you can unlock other higher value dishes for purchase.
          • Tip: some of the early achievements are based on how many dishes you have purchases or how many dishes you have merged, so sometimes it can make sense to buy cheaper deserts and merge them to unlock some of those achievements early.
        • Note that dishes have a ramping cost, so buying many at once can become prohibitively expensive.
        • When you open the yellow trays containing paid deserts you score level experience, which you also score when you merge cakes.
          • As the level experience increases you go to the next level and unlock an additional slot for snacks.
          • If you are buying to aid in income production it typically makes sense to buy the most expensive deserts you can afford.
          • If you are buying to increase your level ranking it can make sense to buy cheaper deserts which you can open up and merge, as you gain level experience each time you open a yellow serving tray.
          • If you are going for a hybrid you can buy one or two of the more expensive deserts available then take your remaining funds to buy the highest ranked remaining desert which has you exhaust your funding and open spaces around the same time.
    • Achievements
      • The game lists down several milestone achievements that recur in this game. Each achievement has 3 tiers.
        • Exquisite Palate: Open a set number of surprise sweets – max level is 200

  • Target Audience
    • This game is suited for all ages.
      • The game automatically saves your progress, has no time limit, offers 38 different snacks, and the board size grows over time. These factors combine to make it a great idle game.

    • There is no adult content in this game.

    Nice game for some casual minutes every day. If playing for a longer time, a number of serious bugs appear, such as a missing upper limit for the graphics, missing achievements counter or non functional overlaying frame. Just misses some last 5% end polish. Still gives fun anyway.
