Nothing is as heartwarming and uplifting as walking into a bakery. The scent of fresh baked goods can make almost any day even the slightest bit better!
But running a bakery isn’t a job in the vanilla Sims 4, so its up to the players to make this possible. That’s where custom content comes in!
With bakery CC, you can get your Sims bakery up and running in no time. Or, you can renovate their kitchen to accommodate a bakers start-up journey.
We’ve compiled a list of the best bakery CC to make the setup process as quick as possible, with some fun themes to pick from!
Best Sims 4 Bakery CC
10. Formal Tea Set
Bakeries can be just as fancy as tea houses, and no tea is complete without cakes and cookies and a beautiful tea set.
The Formal Tea Set comes in 12 swatches, including various patterns in white, blue, yellow, pink, and black colors.
Most of the cutlery is gold, but some swatches use silver cutlery. In total, there are 19 décor items.
Of course, there are also teacups, creamer cups, and many plates and a tier set full of delicious-looking sandwiches, cakes, and cookies.
Having these items set up on tables in the bakery makes it a perfect place to plan Sunday tea for all Sims!
9. ScandiFever Cake
You can’t have a bakery without wonderful-looking cakes displayed in the counters and windows.
The ScandiFever Cake is a piece of décor CC, but it is useful in creating a realistic bakery setting.
This CC item is part of a larger set, but the ScandiFever Cake is a cake stand that comes in six colors: black, white, pink, mint, blue, and yellow.
With the cake stand, there are also three cakes to choose from to display.
You can choose to display a white and strawberry cake, a milk chocolate cake, and a yellow cake with chocolate frosting.
8. Edible Pastries
Décor may help to make your bakery look legit and realistic, but what’s the fun if Sims can’t enjoy the pastries?
These Edible Pastries CC only need the downloadable cardboard tray CC for you to start handing out the delicious baked goods!
With the cardboard tray, you can choose to download any of the French and American pastries available.
Some of these treats include eclairs, donuts, flan, pies, and even a club sandwich.
You can pick and choose to decide what kind of bakery it is that you want your Sim to run.
