Your Sim can complement their cooking skill with a popular and relaxing real-world pastime in The Sims 4: Get To Work by baking sweet and savory treats for them and others to enjoy. They can even make a living as a professional with their own bakery, displaying an assortment of baked goods made traditionally via an oven or by a steampunk cupcake-making contraption.

From starting out burning plain muffins, cream tarts, and sourdough loaves, to mastering bacon-wrapped doughnuts and lava bundt cakes, we’ll walk you through how to level up the baking skill and transform your Sim into a professional baked goods expert in no time.

Updated on October 18, 2023 by Gabrielle Castania: Now that the Home Chef Hustle stuff pack has brought about an update that renovated the Cooking and Baking skills a bit, we’re coming back to our Sims 4 Baking Skill guide to update it to reflect the changes. The Baking skill is easier to master than ever before in The Sims 4, and we hope the new info will help you with all your homestyle baked good needs.


How To Build The Baking Skill

One of the earlier expansion packs for The Sims 4, the Get to Work expansion pack added the Baking skill, among other neat gameplay ideas.

Completely unique from Cooking or Gourmet Cooking, the Baking skill was largely relegated to special machinery until the September 2023 update ahead of the Home Chef Hustle stuff pack made it so your Sims can bake in ovens now, too.

The easiest way to work on your Sim’s Baking skill is to simply get into the kitchen and click the oven or fridge to start baking.

You’ll have a handful of options in the “Bake…” menu, which expands as your skill grows.

If you have your own ingredients (like produce from your garden or animal products from your farm), you can check the “Use Fresh Ingredients” box at the top of the menu to ensure your Sim is always using their own items first.

Doing so will lower the price the dish costs to make.

The Whipped Dream Cupcake Factory Is Large But Inexpensive To Use

For those unsatisfied with simply baking normal cakes and cookies at home, the Whipped Dream Cupcake Factory machine costs 1,200 simoleons to purchase and can be placed anywhere on the home lot just like a normal oven.

Except, the only thing this machine makes is desserts. After purchasing the machine outright, the recipes cost next to nothing to produce when you’re making them.

However, you’ll occasionally need to refill the machine’s ingredients, which costs 20 simoleons each time.

Just keep in mind that the machine is rather large, so it’s best to wait until you have ample space before you invest.

All Baking Recipes In The Sims 4

To help you build your Sims 4 Baking skill faster, we’ve kept track of all baked good recipes down below. This information includes the machinery you’ll need, any ingredients, base cost, and more.

Despite the overhaul on baked goods, cupcakes are still tied to the Cooking skill and are therefore not listed below.

* You can normally purchase ingredients you don’t have, but you can’t make Cowplant Essence Meringue Pie, Voodoo Doll Doughnuts, or Alien Fruit Tarts without the requisite ingredient in your Sim’s inventory or fridge.

Your baker Sim can either open a storefront to sell their baked goods with the regular Get to Work expansion, or they can take on the challenge of opening a food cart if you’ve also got the Home Chef Hustle stuff pack.

Either way, baked goods can be consumed or sold, making them a decent side hustle for The Sims 4.
