Move Over Cooking Mama, We Got Us Some Exciting Sweets Now

By Eugene . October 27, 2013 . 3:29pm



There was so much glitter I was blinded when I opened the website. I really hope that’s sugar in there, because developers Sonic Powered did create From the Abyss… And have now gone beyond 180 degrees right into ultra-cute kids land with their upcoming game Glitter! Exciting Sweets.


The premise? You’re in charge of a patisserie, making everything from éclairs to crepes  to macaroon’s and handling the baking process with mini-games Cooking Mama-style. Except Cooking Mama was boring compared to all that sparkling power of cute that imbues sweets with such delectable taste. Exciting!



Clearly aimed at the young, female audience, the game will also include an entire town chock full of wonderfully lady-like things to do such as a hair salon, library, and regular shops that lets players change their avatar’s hair styles and so forth. There’s also interactions with several NPC’s in between all that baking and shopping. The game boasts some 100 different sweets to make, no mean feat and something to while away the time while you’re possibly baking your own real sweets


Glitter! Exciting Sweets will be out for the Nintendo 3DS this December 12th.

    Life could use more Ultra Happy Glittery games.

  • Cooking Mama would bake the oven with these girls.

    The character art reminds me of some cooking shoujo manga that I read from the last decade or two. Anyone know who the artist is?

    • Hound

      If you’re asking about the cooking manga, you probably read Yumeiro Patissiere.

      If you’re talking about the character designer for this game, I couldn’t find it. The art style is similar to too many shoujo manga (especially those in Ribon) and there’s no credits for them on the game’s website.

      • PoweredByHentai

        I have read and watched Yumeiro Patissiere, but the game’s art is definitely not from YumePati.

        All I know is that the art is from someone in Arina Tanemura’s generation of shoujo manga.

    Very tempting. Would look into it more if it was localized.

    Cooking Mama is cuter and seems to have a much wider wheelhouse of recipes than these ladies.
