"I’m so glad we can start talking about the Deliciously Indulgent Bakery that’s coming in April! I must have added ten pounds just designing this venue. But now that SimGuruTaterTot has posted this exciting new image, let’s grab a cupcake and chat a bit about what all you’re seeing in this picture.
First of all, this is our first look at some of our exciting new Premium Content items, called the Baker’s Bazaar Collection! This includes the Delightful Dessert Display, the Rustic Bakery Rack, the Baker’s Sales Rugs (not pictured) and Sweet Nothing Simoleon Register.
These items allow you to display any food that your Sims can make and sell them similar to the Savvy Seller’s Collection but with a few notable exceptions. To begin with, the Savvy Seller’s Collection restocked items so that Midnight Hollow always had full shelves for your Sims to shop. But with the Bakery it’s your Sims job to create all of the delicious desserts to keep your customers happy. Note that this particular change means that bakeries that aren’t owned by your Sim tend to sell out after a day or so, but that should cut down on too many rival bakers.
Since you don’t want all of that food going bad, the displays are all refrigerated (or in stasis, or using preservatives or whatever helps you feel better about how your food isn’t rotting after a few hours.)
While this venue is a bakery, you can actually sell any food available in the Sims. So if you want to open a Sims Deli, you can make that dream come true!
Making all that food is going to be pretty time consuming, so if you want to hire someone to tend register, you can get that extra help. (FYI: You may notice that we eliminated the notices of Cashiers not being able to make it to work.)
We also have a couple of new rugs that work just like the displays. So you can slide the rugs under counters, tables, etc. and any food placed on top of that item will have all of the sales functionality. This way you can make your bakery your way.
And then there’s the FOOD! Did you see all of that cool new stuff in there? And read all of the Tweets where SimsGuruTaterTot is talking about new recipes that tie directly into the harvestables that shipped with Bohemian Garden? Yeah… we definitely need to grab another cupcake sometime and chat about all of the new food coming with this set. AND the rest of the Premium Content. ‘Cause you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. "
So… um… it looks like we’re all out of cupcakes.
Looks like we should go make some more. Good thing we’re here to introduce the second Premium Content bundle coming with the Deliciously Indulgent Bakery, the Baker’s Station!
How charming is that? It’s got everything you need to make an exciting array of incredible new recipes!
I could go on for pages talking about how fun it is to watch your Sims frost a birthday cake or the old world style of the Bakery, but we’ll cover that with a whole photo blog soon.
Instead let’s talk about those new recipes! Now some of these require ingredients from Bohemian Gardens, other sets or Expansion Packs but the majority of them are available with just the base game. Here’s the full list:
::drool:: I am super excited though since i usually just like to shop at the community lots and not run them , i will be switching to edit town every few sim days and having to restock for the town. Wish we could have "had our cake and eaten it too" but oh well i know most simmers will prefer it this way.
the cases are wonderful! And i love the idea of the rugs thanks for that!!!! And being able to sell other stuff beside desserts is so super. But I have to ask, with the bistro oven some recipes (a lot of them) don't show up...pumpkin pie and the taco truck food doesn't show up and some other things..will these cases not have that limitation since you just cook a meal and place it in? it would be a shame if you couldn't really put ALL food in it. ...also any plans..pretty please to update the Bistro Oven so we can choose all of the foods in the game (like the Genie from showtime does.).
I love the look of everything, the desserts look yummy, the bread buckets are a great piece and the deco will be put to use in LOTS of my builds. Is there anymore clutter? Like flour and sugar sacks and rolling pins? I really hope so! We can't have enough of that stuff in my opinion.
but wait did you say...MORE PC!!!!!! wowwee I can barely wait to hear what!!! or better yet see..or better yet taste!!!!;p (thinking industrial mixer)

Ok, it sounds AMAZING. And I was just about to get into bed and give up for the weekend.
MORE Premium Content? I hope the thread title is a hint we're getting some kind of commercial oven, because if this is a venue we need a workaround that lets us cook on a community lot. I love that we can sell any meal, hopefully with no exceptions, and the new objects sound wonderful.
One thing concerned me:
'Note that this particular change means that bakeries that aren’t owned by your Sim tend to sell out after a day or so'-
What does this mean for non-owned bakeries? Will they always be out of stock?
