A while ago I could buy the Deliciously Indulgent Bakery Set from the EA Store on a sale, and I've built a bakery for my vintage urban American neighborhood that I play in. As always lately, I was influenced by the style of the PC game LA Noire (set in 1947, Los Angeles) while creating both the exterior and the interiors.



The lot is set to be a Hangout (I suppose this is the recommended setting for the bakery set). On the first floor you can find a mix of a bakery store and a bistro / café, equipped not only with the baking oven, but a grill and a mini-fridge too (University EP), so no one can stay hungry visiting the place. On the second floor, if I wanted to be faithful to the "old LA" lore, some illegal racket activity should be going on, but lacking the CC content for that, I decided to furnish a Rebel political party meeting place, which, if one simulates the '40s, is likely semi-legal too. The visiting sims can use the speaker's podium to announce their next Protest, the chess table in the bakery, or the horseshoe court in the alley; but they tend to use the baking oven autonomously, too.





PLAYTEST: So far I had no routing or gameplay problem on the lot. If you have the bakery set, by now you may already know that selling your cookies is not a sure way to become rich - so having a bakery is not a strategy business, but mostly roleplay only. According to my experience, if you want to run a bakery for your own active Mildred Pierce-type sim, the most simple way to operate the establishment is the following:
1. the sim buys the bakery lot as a venue. 2. she bakes all the food, cakes, etc. at home - not inside the bakery! 3. He/she drags each plate of food into her inventory as fresh as possible. 4. Zoom into the bakery with your camera (your sim shouldn't even go there), and drag and drop each plates of food into the glass displays, then set the prices and the other options clicking on the displays and the register. - Done. It's NOT necessary to Tend the Register inside the shop, the owner of the bakery shouldn't even go to the bakery lot and the food displayed will be autonomously sold when the townies visit the place and browse. - Buying the lot as a venue costs 108,510 simoleons currently in my game, so it's pricier than the Build mode Furnished sum.



No CC and no Stuff Packs were used, but obviously you need the Deliciously Indulgent Bakery Set , from the EA Store, and the following EPs: World Adventures, Late Night, Generations, Ambitions, Showtime, Seasons, University Life, Island Paradise. I think quite a sum of stuff are from University Life EP on the lot.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
