Bakery Production

GeorgenollieUseGeorgenollieUse Posts: 1,801
Since I started using the bakery regularly on Monday (after the new prices went in effect), I have been transferring only the necessary ingredients into the bakery prior to making the recipe. This allows me to make a couple batches of apple turnovers and when my apples run out, I throw in a batch of almond muffins, and by the time they are done I have apples again so I switch back. Then at night when I get ready to get off, I throw in a batch of fruit cakes. I sell off all access produce and start over the next day.

It is working well for me but my question is . . . is there a good reason to keep a surplus of ingredients in the bakery? Am I shooting myself in the foot by doing it this way?

Thanks :)

    Good question. I use the bakery exactly the same way as you do, but keep a little surplus in the bakery, other than you do (just to be sure and to be able to make the good choises). Then I skim just the right amount of daily needed ingredients for the flowerfarm; the rest I sell off.

    Since I have a wildly erratic "schedule", I keep a surplus of apples in the bakery, and if I ever get enough coops built, I will do the same with eggs (I keep running out of those on one of my farms). That way I have the necessary goods to produce turnovers (which I run nonstop except overnight or when I run out of eggs) immediately even when I've been away.

    I also throw all my peaches in there immediately when I grow them at all, because as far as I can see, they're too much drain on my fertilizer except for use in fruit cakes. Presently I'm going to stop running those, too, because with only one orchard, I'm going to run out of cherries Real Soon Now.

    I'm only throwing almonds in when I actually need them (when I know in advance that I'm going to be away long enough to merit running almond muffins), and I'm not growing those much either because of my fertilizer problem.

    :) I ran into the peach issue last night - waited up an extra hour or so to get a harvest to come up. Once I get my duck ponds situated . . . definitely raising the two orchards up levels so I can get more per harvest. Until then, all peaches are going into the bakery - if I have a surplus so be it.

    well if you need to upgrade your orchards or coops, some surplus is nice. but once it is in the bakery, they cannot be sold.

    I actually filled mine all the way up while I was waiting on the bakery selling prices to "fix".
    Now I just keep it topped off.
    Really hurt money for awhile, but now that it is done, profits are great and no pain keeping it full

    I run my bakery almost the same way. I do keep a surplus. That way when an event runs and they want my apples or whatever from me I'll have some stashed away.

    Except for the fact those apples or whatever are stuck in your bakery and you will never get them back out without running a dish? I do hope you are aware of that. It is not a bad idea to have a surplus, I do it all the time, but those apples or whatever cannot be used elsewhere any more (not donated, nor sold).

    I think Tony meant that he had apples ready in the bakery to use for recipes and could use the ones he is growing for the project or task. :) I read it the same way you did and then reread it.

    Or he meant that his barns are filled at full capacity. When he harvests, everything goes to the barns first, the rest can be sold or transported to the bakery.
    That's how I play, works great.

    This is what I meant. Sorry I wasn't more clear about that.

    I am aware of this. Once those apples, eggs, ect. are there they are there to stay unless I make a dish with them. Since my coop has no research done I do make a profit from using the bakery and did even before the update.


    Just do what works best for you.

    this is a known bug - you need to go to farm management (the tab with the white pan) and sell off your inventory that you have created. Unlike the old restaurant, your recipes are stored instead of making you money right away and your storage is now full. The need to sell now pop up is not working right on the bakery.
