@Epicwin69 Is there an NAP (Neighborhood Action Plan) active? I don't have Eco Lifestyle but I've read there's an NAP that causes Sims to bake the cakes a lot.

I don't remember if it occurs even with the NAP inactive but you might want to check which NAP is active in case it could be that one. 😉

Sims are continuing to bake White cakes!

★★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? Current
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? I have all Stuff, game and Expansion packs.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? How I found this was I was playing an active family for a long time, then I changed active families. A member from my new active family went to go visit the old active family and both parents were constantly preparing white cakes. Sometimes they were mixing the batter, cooking the cakes and other times they were just leaving the ingredients out on the bench. They'd go and do a few things and when they or their children got hungry they would go and prepare to bake another white cake. I have updated my mods folder, and taken out my mods and this still occurs.
What happens when the bug occurs? They prepare to make the cake and will either leave the ingredients out on the table or they begin mixing the batter for the cake and will leave that. Or they will cook the cake. It seems to happen when either their children or they themselves are hungry and they will resort to making a white cake.
What do you expect to see? I expect them to stop making the cakes, or at least only make on cake. I thought this was fixed but I think this bug came undone for me.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. I believe this bug has reoccurred ever since the last patch/ game update was performed.

@NAUGHTYPEACHY Is the foodies NAP active in your neighborhood ?

I merged this with the NAP thread for now but it seems you might also have this issue: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-SAVES-Excessive-autonomous-food-preparation/td-p/9724949

While yes I do, this has never been an issue before, and the foodies unite says that it only should be when your sims cook and interact about food socials. I have foodies unite on another lot and this doesn't seem to be an issue anywhere else.  Also thank you for the forward, I have clicked me too on the other post 😊

I once made the mistake of having a Sim host a club gathering at their home with the Foodies Unite NAP active. 

 

It was THE FOODPOCALYPSE.

 

Every single club member started white cake, unless they were starting herb-crusted salmon or something.  (One was a better cook!)  They'd run out of counter space and immediately start something else.  They covered every available surface in half-finished bowls of white cake batter, fish wrapped in paper, etc.  UGH.  My Sim ended the club gathering, sent everyone home, called his family to clean, and QUIT THE CLUB.  Wink  LOL!

 

And then we repealed "Foodies Unite."  Wink

I clicked on the me too as well. I have the Foodie NAP on but at first everything was okay. No one was making cake all the time. I had one club gathering and now every NPC is making white cake. I am about to repeal the NAP even though it is useful to my chef Sim. It is just too annoying to clean up all the white cake because you can't delete them.

@geek-gurl10 Does it persist after ending the club meeting ?

The club meetings have their own thread here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-GT-Clubs-with-bake-action-only-ever-bake-white-cak...
