Stages[edit]

Each stage includes its own customers (except for the future), comics, background design, and all include the same mini-games. Also, the player receives a trophy for completing each stage:

  • Jurassic Period: Jill must find Agent Bundt, and a T-Rex offers himself to tell Jill where he is if he gets something in return, so Jill prepares cakes for him, the other dinosaurs, the monkeys and cavemen. After completing the task, Jill uses the Time Bender to teleport Agent Bundt to the present.
  • Forbidden City: Jill saved Risha, but it needs to bake cakes for the Emperor, and for all China. After completing the task, Jill needs help for the emperor and teleports Risha to the Present.
  • Ancient Egypt: Jill must save her grandpa from the top of a pyramid, but first it needs to impress the Pharaoh. After completing her task, she uses the Egyptians to complete the pyramid, and saves her grandpa, and then teleports him to the Present.
  • Medieval England: Jill needs to demonstrate to Merlin that her Grandma isn't Endora, so Jill bakes cakes to prove her Grandma's cooking abilities and make Merlin find Endora and marry them. After finding Endora, Jill teleports her grandma back home.
  • Revolutionary France: Jill must free Tiny from the Bastille after he eats all the bread and caused a food shortage, but she needs to impress Marquis and Marie. Resolving the shortage problems with her cakes, she frees Tiny and teleports him back to present.
  • Future: As Jill teleports everyone back home, there was someone who didn't get to the end: herself! As there seems to be no hope, a new world appears, and Jill enters it, but finds that the Time Bender has a problem, and now customers from all the times were brought to the future. So, Jill needs to become the Supreme World Baker to have the scientist fix the Time Bender. She chooses Marquis de Cake to organize activities and get the Time Bender fixed and go home with Jack and her family and all customers back to their age. Managing to accomplish her goal, she gets back home.
