CAKES. EVERY TYPE. EVERY COLOR. EVERY SHAPE!
Presented by EA Creator Network – Software Not Final
The Sims 4 My Wedding Stories comes with a huge number of new wedding cakes and wedding cake toppers to help make your special day perfect. Sims can check out cake samples at the patisserie stand in Tartosa and either purchase or bake their own full-size wedding cakes. Many different toppers can be added to wedding cakes to customise them further.
Although the new cakes are labeled as wedding cakes and are designed with weddings in mind, all the new cakes that come with My Wedding Stories can be used for any type of social event you like. You aren’t limited to only making or buying wedding cakes for weddings.
Taste Testing Wedding Cakes
The patisserie stand is located in the Porto Luminoso neighbourhood of Tartosa. It’s built into one of the shell buildings facing the big fountain with seating in the centre of town. Sims can purchase individual slices of wedding cakes here as well as some other desserts. The patisserie stand only carries a limited selection of wedding cake samples; one type of cake from each of the 9 styles. It also functions the same as any other food vendor stand; Sims simply order what they want and sit down nearby to eat it. They may get a generic happy buff from eating good food depending on the quality of the cake.
Basically, the patisserie stand serves more of a roleplay purpose than anything else. You can send your Sims here to try cake as part of your own storytelling that they are picking out their wedding cake but the stand itself is the same as any other food stand. You can’t actually purchase your wedding cake here and there are no special cake-related moodlets to tell you that your Sims like/dislike certain flavours.
Buying a Wedding Cake
Buying a wedding cake is very simple. Wedding cakes can be ordered through the computer. Wedding Cakes are a new subcategory under the Order category on computers. All 56 wedding cakes will be available to browse through and purchase on the computer.
When you purchase a wedding cake, it will appear immediately in your Sim’s inventory. If your Sim is currently engaged, they can click on the cake and select “Select as Wedding Cake.” The cake will disappear and you’ll get a notification informing you that the cake will be ready for you on the big day. However, we had issues with our cake not being at the wedding reception or the ceremony after doing this so it may be best to just purchase the cake right before the wedding and take it with you yourself.
Below are the prices for each style of cake:
- Beachy Wedding Cakes – $175
- Cupcake Wedding Cake Displays – $75
- Floral Wedding Cakes – $150
- Heart Wedding Cakes – $175
- Hexagon Wedding Cakes – $225
- Pillow Wedding Cakes – $225
- Round Wedding Cakes – $200
- Square Design Round Wedding Cakes – $150
- Square Wedding Cakes – $200
Baking Your Own Wedding Cake
If your Sim is a skilled gourmet chef, they can also make their own wedding cakes. To bake your own wedding cakes, your Sim must first have unlocked the Gourmet Cooking skill by reaching level 5 of the Cooking skill. Once your Sim has learned the Gourmet Cooking skill, a new interaction on the fridge called Cook Wedding Cake will become available.
Making wedding cakes comes with new cooking animations. Sims will mix up the batter and pour it into a cakepan in the oven like other types of cakes and desserts. Instead of the cake popping out of the oven fully decorated, Sims will spend some time decorating the cake after they take it out of the oven.
Sims can only make wedding cakes they are skilled enough for. At level one of the Gourmet Cooking skill, they will only be able to make the cupcake displays but other types of wedding cakes will open up at higher skill levels.
Below are the skill levels required to make all 9 cake styles:
- Cupcake Wedding Cakes – 1
- Floral Wedding Cakes – 5
- Square Design Round Wedding Cakes – 5
- Heart Wedding Cakes – 6
- Beachy Wedding Cakes – 6
- Square Wedding Cakes – 7
- Four-Tiered Round Cakes – 7
- Hexagon Wedding Cakes – 8
- Pillow Wedding Cakes – 8

Beachy Four-Tiered Round Cakes
We’ve included pictures of what each cake looks like as an individual slice. This should help you match the full size cake to the individual slice samples available at the patisserie stand when you’re taste testing cakes. As you can see, many of the cakes have their own unique flavour and colours inside, as well as different shapes to match the shape of the overall cake.
Note: We were unable to show a slice of the Silver and Gold Beachy Four-Tiered Cake. It appears to be glitched at the moment; Sims will reset themselves every time you direct them to interact with the cake. This cake was the only one we had any trouble with.
There are a total of 96 different toppers in 11 styles available for wedding cakes. To select a topper for your wedding cake, click on a finished wedding cake and choose Select New Cake Topper to bring up the topper selection menu. You can use the filters to help you find the topper you’re looking for faster.
It doesn’t cost anything to add a topper to your wedding cake. Cake toppers can be inscribed and kept after the wedding as a keepsake.

Below are all 96 cake toppers in their 11 different styles. You’ll notice there are many traditional ones, like roses and flowers with script, a well as fun ones like bats, ghosts, and cowplants. There are also a variety of LGBTQIA+ toppers as both rainbows and mini-Sims.
