To use cake on Windows, follow these steps (cygwin is not necessary):

  1. Download and install Ruby 1.8.7 1
  2. Download and install the JDK
  3. Add C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_21\bin to your PATH environment variable 2
  4. Start cmd or your favorite teminal program
  5. Run: gem install win32-process -v 0.6.6
  6. Run: gem install cake
  7. Run: cake help

1: Cake doesn't yet work with Ruby 1.9 on Windows because win32/process segfaults in 1.9 on Windows.

2: Or the appropriate path for your system. Here are more detailed instructions.
