Videogame cooking? No cleaning up ...

I bet the one thing you’ve been dying to do this week is bake a
digital cake, right?

Majesco Entertainment is banking you will. It announced “Cake Mania: In the Mix!” for the Nintendo Wii will be released in
time for Christmas.

And it’s a sequel.

Of course, any game about baking is about time management. There’s even a co-op mode where lead character Jill Evans can get a little help making her double chocolate chip supreme.

The PC version of this game has been downloaded more than
80 million times and sold 315,000 units on the Nintendo DS, so
somebody likes digital cooking (I guess if you burn something you
don’t smell it - and there’s no clean-up!).

In case you’re curious, you’ll use the Wii-mote to lead Jill
through nine bakeries.

You learn all parts of the baking biz, from catering to advertis

And, yes, you will “cook.”
