Papa's Cupcakeria To Go! is the fourth Papa Louie's restaurant management series game that is available for small-screened devices. The app was first confirmed on July 8, 2015, and went live on Monday, September 14, 2015.
Big Big Big Day today! Papa’s Cupcakeria To Go is here!!
Once upon a time, the idea of getting Mini-Games and Holidays to fit into a mobile game seemed like an impossible dream. But we were determined to get them working for this game, regardless of how challenging it would be, and how long it would take. Thankfully, all that hard work paid off, and we are proud to release our best mobile game yet… Papa’s Cupcakeria To Go!
Get it now for iPhone, iPod Touch, Android Phones, and in the Amazon App Store!
As a special bonus, we are lowering the price by 50% for the initial launch of the game so all our super-fans can save some money!
Bake and decorate delicious cupcakes on the go with this brand-new version of Papa’s Cupcakeria, with gameplay and controls reimagined for iPhone and iPod Touch!You’ll need to multitask between four areas of the cupcake shop, with new controls designed to work just right in the palm of your hand. Head to the Order Station to take orders from your wacky customers in the lobby. Switch to the Batter Station to prep the pans with liners and add just the right amount of batter. Move to the Bake Station to put the cupcakes into the oven and wait for them to bake. Jump to the Build Station to add frosting to the cupcakes, and decorate them with a variety of shakers, drizzles, and festive toppers. Each station is a hands-on experience, where you’ll need to drag, swipe, and tap your way through the cupcake-crafting process.
Keep your customers happy to earn more points and level up. As your level rises, you’ll unlock new toppings for the shop, and new customers will start visiting the Cupcakeria! A set of well-crafted cupcakes will also earn you tips to spend on in the Shop, and Mini-Game Tickets to use in the daily Mini-Game! More Info…

James and Willow are the playable workers in this game. Unlike the desktop version, there are no custom workers available. The uniforms include striped pink and brown vests (with white shirts or tank underneath), black pants or skirt, and brown shoes with red laces. A baseball cap (pink in the back, white in front) finish the default outfit with a cupcake on the front, a brown bill, and a cherry on the top of the cap.
The days a player unlocks new customers (the ones who are not unlocked when reaching a new rank), and the order of when they become available depend on how well one performs during the course of the game. There are really no "set days" as to when some of the characters are unlocked, but their order of appearance should be correct.

- This is the first restaurant time-management game where the To Go! counterpart is developed before the HD version.
- In this game both Taco Mia workers have the same favorite holiday (Cinco de Mayo).
- Just like it's desktop counterpart, this is the first "To Go" game that will have seasons, holidays, and seasonal ingredients.
- This is first app game to include seasons, holidays, and seasonal ingredients.
- This is the first "To Go" game that will feature Foodini's minigames.
- The mini game "Jojo's Burger Match" was called "Jojo's Burger Slots" in Pancakeria.
- If James is selected as the worker, then Willow becomes the tutorial customer. If Willow is selected as the worker, then James becomes the tutorial customer.
- Mary is the second customer in this game, repeating her role as the second customer in the desktop game.
- This is the first game where you can skip by clicking the screen when a new customer, a new ingredient, a holiday or a pay day appears.
- Android users were able to download the game earlier than App Store users.
- Three holidays that were not celebrated in the desktop game are featured in the To Go! game:
- Customers will not come to the Cupcakeria in costumes during the different holidays as they do in the computer version of the game.
- In Papa's Cupcakeria, Confetti Cake was a permanent item, as there were no seasonal cakes at the time. Now that there are seasonal cakes in Cupcakeria To Go! and HD, Confetti Cake is now a seasonal item for New Year.
- When players finally reach that point in the game where he or she will have to serve 6 customers, 2 customers will like the current holiday, 3 customers will randomly visit, and then of course, the final customer is the closer. But during Christmas, players will sometimes serve 3 customers that favor the holiday, 2 random customers, and one closer.
