Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
An Italian cake for Christmas! New mesh fully animated by Barbara and me. Hope you like it, it is a special Italian Cake for Christmas, it should represent a trunk to burn the Christmas night... but in this case people eat it!

This food was cloned from TS2 Cake, so don't need EP.
It come with 2 additional files, required to work, there are 2 custom plates, used by Tronchetto and by Torrone, and they are 2 christmas themed plates, one service plate and one single plate.

All you need is included in this file, and doesn't replace anything from the default game.

If you download "Torrone" too, the plates are the same, so it's normal to receive a message of overwrite files.

Edit 11/01: I've fixed the French Translation by suggest of Mihura, if you want a better french localization please redownload

Edit 22/05: I've fixed some issue about the interaction and time for appearing it in the menu. Please redownload.

Additional Credits:
Barbara of my Staff, who made the mesh of this food

Oh my another one, now for sure I am going to have to find something to munch on.
The cake looks so real and reminds me of one my Mother used to make and the creamy part was a raspberry jelly and it was so yummy with chocolate.
Thank You, I am sure my Simmie's will enjoy it.
