Awesome! But...

This is one of my favorite apps. It's awesome and challenging, and if you don't want to do something hard, you can do the orders in the mailbox. The only problem is, sometimes it gets glitchy. For example, in on an order that needs grape jelly beans for a topping. I've tried it twice, (with the correct topping) and both times it said it was the wrong topping. This has been occurring for most of the times I have played and is getting a little frustrating because I end up having to do every single recipe twice! Please fix bug! Everything is is awesome though!

Great.. But download time?

This is one of the reviews that can't be like one sentence. Cupcake detective is challenging but fun. I also can't find any bugs. I love baking and this is something that is fun and is in a way relatable to a baker. Loved this game and definitely worth the wait to download. But here is the reason I rated it a 4 star. It took SO LONG to download . I would check and check by it would have made any progress. It is a fun game but the download took so long I got my first wrinkle before I got to play it. Jk. But it did take a strangely long amount of time to install.

Love this game

The only complaint I have is that I have never been able to get the daily cases, even though I've purchased the full version. Other than that, I love it
