CHICAGO, May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mrs. Judd's Games is thrilled to announce the release of its 11th educational app, Space Cakes – Kids Bakery Game with Math and Numbers, and an exciting new partnership with the world famous, and Chicago-based, Eli's Cheesecake FactorySpace Cakes takes kids across the galaxy to a far-away stellar space bakery, as it seeks to ignite their passion for 3D geometry, number play, and fun with math. The exciting partnership with Eli's marks a breakthrough in the early education app developer's model for game development. The upfront partnership enables Mrs. Judd's Games to offer top-rated educational games 100% free to families and classrooms and to focus entirely on the creation of unique, educational, and fun mobile game experiences instead of monetization strategies.

The Space Cakes bakery is filled with alien ingredients, fantastic frosting, and an array of space toppers from across the galaxy. After children create unique treats using an awareness of counting, numbers, and geometry they prepare for take-off and steer their cake delivery spaceship back to Earth and celebrate safe arrival with starburst, fireworks, and colorful confetti. Space Cakes also incorporates Mrs. Judd's Games groundbreaking Juddly™ sharing network, enabling kids to safely deliver in-game intergalactic cake creations right to the inboxes of their parents and teachers back on earth.

A longtime supporter of education, Eli's Cheesecake entrusted Mrs. Judd and her creative team of developers and artists for its first foray into the world of educational app development.

"Eli's has always had a longstanding commitment to education and we are always looking to strengthen both our association and perception with parents and teachers," said Marc Shulman, President of Eli's Cheesecake. "When looking for a way to integrate our brand into the world of education, Mrs. Judd's Games came to us with an innovative game concept and utilized their Juddly™ sharing network to let kids play and learn, while giving us a window to let mom know more about Eli's and our commitment to education."

Eli's will debut the new app at their National Restaurant Association Show Booth #1425 at Chicago's McCormick Place, May 18-21. Show attendees can use the app to build their own Space Cake and will be entered for a chance to win a real Eli's Space Cake, shipped anywhere in the continental US.
