    SOS Piece of Cake Drop Items/Pastry Bags

    : chick-pea -Time to grow: 6 hours (64EP/BEP)
    Drop : Pastry Bag -

    The Pastry Bags will drop from all 3 main fields and the 2 tropical fields, from crops, stables, workshops and trees.

    You need to be in Mainland level 37 and Bahamarama level 2 to finish the event in full. You have to unlock 32 tiles to finish the event in full. Start from tile 1. Then you can spread to other tiles. You can also skip some if you don't want to do that particular tile.

    Required Item NameAmount Required
    chick-pea 19,250 for the production of 55 Chick Pea Liquid
    Chick Pea Liquid 55
    Orange Meringue23
    Blueberry meringue18
    Strawberry meringue14
    water1,100 units for the production of 55 Chick Pea Liquid
    Pastry Bag1,140
    carrot845 (500 + 345 for dispensing meringue oranges)
    Cow Milk20
    Greylag goose8
    Goat milk15
    Parrot feather15
    Brown Pig15
    We have to start the event by unlocking the first bottom Orange Candle tile.
    Tiles with candles are special tiles. You get special rewards from them. After unlocking the candle tiles, you blow them out to get the reward. After that we have to wait for a 8 hours cool down time and the candle will light once again. You can them blow them once again to get the reward. Once again wait for 8 hours and continue the process and you can do this till the end of the event. But the candle tile for 1 Golden Banana requires 16 hours of cooling time.


    Additional rewards
    (You can get these couple of times)
    The sooner we unlock the candles the more rewards we get from it.
    To unlock it fast, you need 3 Orange Meringue, 2 Red Meringue & 2 Blue Meringue. Make them first.

    More Strategies ( will update the below list of strategies whenever any player gives a valuable suggestions

    1. The Greylag is at tile no. 16. If you do not have them, you do not want to breed them, and cannot buy them at market, you may consider skipping them. It is not a must do target. Yes, you need to resist the 5 Golden Bananas temptation.

    2. For the Cloud row, you must unlock title no. 10 and for the cloud row items : tiles no. 28 or 15 ; 23 or 31 ; 27 or 30

    More about these 2 strategies - Click here
    Above strategies suggested by dnin21cent

    • Red rings tiles - don't require event crops/drops.
    • Orange tiles - require meringues and is the cheapest way to unlock all the candles. Instead of tile 16 (greylag goose) you can unlock tile 3. Total event crops for the orange tiles: 7,700. Total drops needed for the orange tiles: 370
    • Blue tiles - The cheapest way to get the cloud row and needed items
    • Green tiles give extra items (remember 23 can only be unlocked after unlocking all the candles).
    • Purple tile give party tickets.

    The red, orange and blue marking of the tiles are shown in the picture in the spoiler below.

    5. Tiles Nos. 7 and 20 offer a total of 20 Stars. You will need 200 Pears and 15 Honey.

    Thank you so much, 12ss12, for working out the numbers! I'd totally missed that we needed carrots, plums and strawberries, but luckily I have tonnes of those.
    Having to breed the Greylag (which is ripping through my precious store of PF :() but otherwise I'm set on ingredients. Just wish the instructions didn't always look so confusing; I know it will make more sense once it's all in place.

    Good luck everybody!!! :)

    I have to tell you a secret, the total requirement calculations I borrowed from other Forums. So the credit goes to them. But all others including editing, formatting, phrasing out etc., is mine.

    thanks 12ss12 to made all the calculation. I just hate to do the maths!

    There is 6 candle, only the top orange one take double time(16hr) to cool down as it give :
    1 Golden banana

    advise to newbies & those time tight due to RL, since everthing need.... Frist is to grow thousands
    event crop. also, if you find it hard to get those stuff, they may hard to find on market(sold out)
    or prize too high for you.
    Remember, you do not need to unlock whole cake"
    aim at what prize you most wanted. always refer toFAQ to see the "lock no" if you can't remember
    them like me,
    For Got the CR, you must unlock 10 for the CR, then deco giver :
    28 or 15. ; 23 or 31 ; 27 or 30
    that mean this event give double giver,
    Since, all start with bottom orange candle & them move with connected lock , so, any direction is up
    to you, try the way(prize) you like & you could move(you had the required stuff)

    the Greylag is at lock 16, it's not on the giver list, if you find that: you do not want to breed them,but
    they are not reachable for you from market, you may consider skip them if you find it do not a 'must'
    on the path to your target!
    Yes, you need to resist the 5GB temptation.

    Cassie01' yes, it's tortoises, I think 12ss12 got a small typing mistake

    So before I rip my trees out, given the high level of drops and crops, it's probably going to have to be done, correct?

    EDIT: Never mind. After really thinking about this I have answered my own question. Pretty obvious, huh? Just having one of those moments;):pxDxD

    The sooner we unlock the candles the more rewards we get from them. Here is my plan for how to get to the candles:

    The red rings are tiles which don't require event crops/drops, I have all the things required so I can unlock them as soon as I get there. (I left out tile 8 grapefruit, tile 18 haflingers and tile 26 brown pigs, as I don't know if I will do those.) The orange tiles require meringues and is the cheapest way to unlock all the candles. Note, if you can't or don't want to unlock tile 16 greylag goose you can instead unlock tile 3 for 2 blue meringues.
    • Total event crops for the orange tiles: 7,700
    • Total drops needed for the orange tiles: 370
    After unlocking all the candles I'll go for other prizes. The blue tiles are the cheapest way to get the cloud row and needed items. The green tiles give extra items (remember 23 can only be unlocked after unlocking all the candles). And the purple tile give party tickets.

    I think I'm going to pretty way just stumble my way thru this one, lol. Have all that's necessary, so should be alright, and knowing me, I'll end up doing all the cake, tho I'll pick and choose first. I couldn't believe it when I saw grapefruit on the list, since it's still new o_O. I lucked out and got one last seedlings, so have them, but had to buy some on bearbabe. At least I got them before the prices started rising too horribly. I don't have a juniper on either farm, so I picked up a few of those, too, just in case.;)

    Thanks Mir and 12ss12 for the number crunching! :inlove: After reading the faqs I saw the best plan was to go for candles first to make the most of them - and you dear farmers gave the totals for that! As I have all items to donate except event crops, I will probably go for completing the entire event.

    I would encourage even the newest farmers to go for this event; complete whatever you can. There are many nice prizes available for those unable to afford the high priced donation items, and there is a good EP/CC return on leftover meringues. Best of luck to all!:)

    Thanks Mir for the plan to get to the candles quickly! I'm really hoping to complete the event, but it's a terrible work week RL and I hate having to rip up all of my land AGAIN ... sigh ... but I really want the pressies ... so here goes! :inlove:

    My strategy will be to plant a good overnight crop in all fields, including MM, so that I can get the best drops in the morning (I still need one more trophy to finish the LL Rune but I'm at 29%). I don't really understand the refinery, but I've made some progress on carnations. Hopefully that will affect the crops I grow overnight.

    Then in-between work and sleep I'll grow chickpeas, mill meringue, get to candles as fast as possible, and then swoop down for whatever else I can grab! :p;)

    Best luck everybody!!!

    Hello alexis2112,

    I hear ya, I myself is just over half way done with the last of the LL to get to 30% I'm clawing at it as fast as I can, good luck to you.
    As for refinements, I never fully under stood it but they help. Just keep feeding it-.-and feeding it and then go to market buy whatever you are doing in the thou. and feed it more worse than that plant feed me Se more! more more more!!

    But yes, thanks Mir, bring on the cake I am ready!

    Thanks @12ss12 for putting all the info together, this event FAQ is just too complicated to sort out during a 24hr MM. :wuerg: Need to stay focused on MM goals, will make medium effort to set up farm for beginning of event drops! :p Thanks for all the good strategy ideas. I have all the non-event items needed except for 2 Grayleg Geese :music: So bit the bullet without BBD & put my only 8 White Fronted Geese into breeding pen, hoping the skips aren't with me this time. :oops::music::oops:
    EDIT: Of course 1 Grayleg & 1 Barnacle Goose :cry:-.-:cry: So will try breeding normal Geese & now hope for a skip. :p Will the skip gods be with me? :wuerg:
    2nd EDIT: NO! :cry: 14 PF later finally have the 2 Grayleg Geese I was missing -.-xD-.-

    Wow my brain hurts!!! Thanks to the people who figured this one out. Even so its taken me a while to understand it. If I got it right I'm hoping to get most of it done.

    There are definitely some I can't get, not only do I not have 8 graylag geese I don't even have the regular geese to breed them from. Same with the haflingers and brown pigs. Also nowhere on grapefruit.

    Both the truffles and roosters are going to be a challenge to raise enough since I'm starting from none but I think I can, I think I can...

    The rest is in the barn or event stuff with all that brings!!!!

    Event strategy for the want to be Market Big Dogs and soon to be Market Lion Kings:
    • Event for us is titled properly as A Piece of Cake. All required is junks growing and a little mill time. (You know better than to use the BAHA mill).
    • All animal acquisition and producing has been done. Suggest dumping only to depress prices on the breeding animal. As we planned, the quick ccs are in the base level goose. Grab the easy ccs from the goose feed now as this is the reason why we did not sell it during the last event.
    • Raise the market on wheat then take the profits. Raise the related chicken feed as it is need for poop. Let the market fall on chickens and then pick um up cheap. Take all the cheap rabbits as few will appear.
    • My model signals unload the pig feed and take every single cc out of truffles.
    • Now is not the time for feather ccs. Buy as they will not appear as often as cheap. Expect to hold them for several months to come.
    • Keep parrot feed and elephant feed outrageous. We're at about the limit on some markets with camel feed so use discresion.
    • Model indicates to dump the strawberry quick and get out.
    Again, no strategy required, just take whatever you want from the event.

    Let's roll, we'll count um up at the finish line.

    I see one more thing: Grab a few of those worthless BAHA crops now, time is drawing near, but don't overdue it they're worthless.

    For the Market Lion Kings Only:
    • The HH TOP 1000 items are appearing cheap. Grab um and expect to hold um. Of course you know this or you wouldn't be a Market Lion King anyway.
    Come on Market Big Dogs! All it takes is a one time showing of 575 Million ccs to be a Market Lion King on probation.

    You can do it Market Lion Kings on Probation, all it takes is a one time showing of 600 Million ccs to be a lifetime member.

    hahaha A piece of cake hahaha
