Bake sales are an activity added in The Sims 3: Ambitions. It can be considered the successor (or predecessor if following timeline) of the lemonade stand from The Sims 2: Open for Business. Bake sales allow children to make a little extra money while building their cooking skills. To run a bake sale, children must own both the bake sale table and a toy oven to make the baked goods.
Pricing and demandEdit
The demand for specific baked goods changes every day. Only children can check the demand by reading the newspaper. There are three different types of baked goods: chocolate, vanilla, and other. Prices for each type of baked good can be individually set.
Most baked goods can now be made in bulk, however it will cost the child about 10 simoleons to do so (individually baking each good is free). Baked goods include the following:
- Chocolate Cookie
- Chocolate Brownie
- Chocolate Cupcake
- Chocolate Cake
- Vanilla Muffin
- Sugar Cookie
- Vanilla Cupcake
- Vanilla Cake
- Blueberry Muffin
- Caramel Brownie
Sadly, not everyone who visits the bake sale is interested in buying something. Other children may attempt to steal money from the bake sale. If an older Sim sees the child stealing, they will lecture the child and make them return the money. Older Sims may also attempt to steal money from the bake sale themselves if they have the evil trait.
- Create a Sim includes a variety of outfits for boys and girls that give them the appearance of being a young chef.
- Children who spend a lot of time selling baked goods may be inspired to become a Five Star Chef.
- Despite being made by a child with a toy oven, Perfect quality baked goods give the Amazing Meal moodlet and have a significantly longer expiration time than normal food.
