Similar to my other food mods, the baking interactions are started from a source object which is a super cute frosting piping bag. You can place and use it from the world, your sims inventory, or the fridge inventory.
It works by searching the world for a fridge and oven which means it isn’t tied to specific objects and will work with any EA or CC appliances. Sims are also able to back in the new mini counter ovens! After you start the baking interaction the sims will grab ingredients, prep, and bake as normal! To put the sprinkles on top, I made a ton of custom pans that the sims use in the animations to match what they are cooking.
I kept the skill requirements and building the same as the original cupcake factory machine. Basically everything uses the baking skill except the cupcakes which use the cooking skill. Why? No idea, but I thought there might be some reason to it. Perhaps because the cupcakes are actually BGC and the others aren’t? Only EA knows! There are a total of 27 baking recipes and 8 cupcake recipes.
The piping bag requires Get To Work and can bake all the recipes from the Cupcake Factory machine. The new sprinkle bag essentially works the same but is base game compatible and will only cook the cupcake recipes.
I also added a new feature to fix a major hair pulling issue which you can read more about here!
I have updated the a-dough-able cupcake maker to include a sprinkle bag which essentially works the same but is base game compatible. It will only cook the (BGC) cupcake recipes. I also added a new feature to fix a major hair pulling issue which you can read more about here!
