I've gotten myself thoroughly hooked on Cake Mania. Cute graphics, fun characters, and a steadily increasing challenge. Take orders, make the right cakes, and send them on their way before they get impatient enough to walk out on you. There are four different shaped cakes - three standards and a seasonal one that varies by level - and four frosting colors. At higher levels the customers want layer cakes with toppers. I really enjoy the multi-tasking challenge for some reason, keeping multiple stations running and the cakes put together in the right order gives me a sense of accomplishment.

That's also one of the more enjoyable challenges of my current job - juggling tons of little details and keeping them all straight so everybody gets paid and leaves happy. I've finally developed a comfortable routine that works, for me and my employers.

It's been a lot of years since I've looked forward to going to work on a regular basis.
