A wonderful game which is easily played with adults and other children. Children have to follow ingredient instructions to mix cakes and cookies, which supports with counting and measuring. Children are then able to add their own ingredients (both nice and horrible) and decorate their cakes and biscuits. They then have to decide who gets more of their biscuits. A lot of language rich potential within the app to discuss what ingredients are needed, how cakes are made, sharing with friends. Also a great opportunity for parents and children to continue play offline, by baking themselves.
