Bake Cupcake Machine Items in Oven

Now you can bake all cupcakes machine baked goods in the oven! I've really been wanting a mod that allows me to bake everything without needing a giant cupcake machine, so I decided to create this mod. I also changed around the menus for some recipes, I felt cakes would be more appropriate in "bake" versus "cook", and I moved a couple recipes from "bake" to "cook". I took animations from other recipes, so the pans won't really make sense (ie. putting a cake pan in the oven and taking out cupcakes), but it still works. If I ever learn how to mesh or decide to go in and make custom recipes, I'll update the mod.

I have created 2 flavors of this mod. One that requires ingredients to bake (only for the recipes that originally required ingredients), and one that removes all requirements for ingredients. Note that I left a necessity for ingredients that I thought removing ingredients would defeat the whole point (alien fruit tarts, voodoo doll doughnuts, etc.) Only download one flavor of this mod.

I don't forsee this mod breaking with patch updates, as long as there are no changes made to stove interactions or recipes. This mod will conflict with any other mod that changes the stove "start crafting" interactions for cooking, homestyle cooking, and baking, and any baking-type recipe files. Check spoilers for more information.

Note that I have only added this new bake option for cupcake machine recipes to the stove. It will only work if baking from the stove. All the recipes should still remain available on the cupcake machine.

This is my first mod, so I definitely appreciate any feedback! Let me know if anything doesn't work, if I missed any recipes, any recipes appear in 2 different menus, or if there are any recipes that you think should be moved elsewhere.

And, do I need custom meals mod for this to work?


No custom meal mod required, this mod just adds cupcake machine recipes into the same bake function for oven-based baking recipes (same menu). The interactions with the oven are correct, it's just the pans that are incorrect. I know Plasticbox's mod uses a cupcake tin, which I'm pretty sure was actually custom made by Plasticbox. Unfortunately, my modding abilities are not good enough where I can do that too, but I'd hopefully like to eventually update my mod similarly if I learn how.

For some reason I can't sell them ot the local bakery if I baked them from the oven.

The cupcake baking tin is an actual Maxis debug object. Open S4S via "Object Override" function, tick the Debug objects box, type "cup" in the search box and scroll down one or two lines and you'll see it right there, available to extract as an object to learn all its details.

Not having the "Sell to local bakery" option is the only reason I don't use these mods. I LOVE the idea though. It's great!

I somehow managed to delete that option from all the baked goods, but I'm planning to add it back in my next update! Hopefully, I can release that soon, whenever I get a chance to make the updates.

Thanks a lot for this!

One thing though; you've left the hamburger cake in the cooking section and the macaroons in the gourmet cooking section. They should probably be moved to baking as well.
