How I Spent $ 1.3 Million Trying to Bake a Cake in Farming Simulator 22 Part 2

In the first part from my journal I was trying to bake a cake from scratch by Christmas in Farming Simulator 22, although with only two months left in the game year I had only managed to produce only eggs and strawberries while spending. .. let me check my notes … ah, yes. One million dollars.

I still need wheat to make flour, sugar beets to make sugar, and a whole bunch of milk because I need to turn some of it into butter while leaving the rest as milk. While my odds of completing a single cake seem low, at least there has been some progress in the cow department.

Milk and butter

The work of a farmer is never finished, especially when he has not even started 80% of his work. As I walk past my cow pen in a panic about everything, I see that they have in fact produced milk. Naturally, I can’t use my water tank to haul milk, so it’s time to rent another fucking tank and tow it to the farm. With 649 liters of fresh milk, I head to the dairy that I buy (for $ 70,000). I then tell him to start making butter and send that butter to the bakery, please and thank you.

Pissed off as I am, it just keeps on doing me good to produce something from my stupid little incomplete road farm. But even though I have milk for butter, I also need more milk for plain milk, so I’m spending about $ 10,000 on more cows (this time I’m having them delivered). I now have eggs, butter and strawberries in my bakery, waiting for everything else.


In the meantime, I receive some disheartening news. After plowing a second small field on the other side of the exit ramp and renting a different planter (everything seems to need its own specialized equipment) and filling it with beet seeds, I get a notification that I don’t. can’t plant beets in October. They should be planted earlier in the year. Well, shit. Beets were my way to sugar, a fairly important ingredient in the cake. I really wanted to develop mine, but after sitting at my desk with my head in my hands for a while, I’m starting to wonder if there’s a shortcut I can take.

I check the map for existing beet fields, and it turns out there is one right next to the baseball stadium across the highway. I know I wanted to do everything from scratch, but I’m two months before Christmas, and my cake currently consists of strawberries floating in raw eggs next to a pile of butter and I’m stress. I buy the beet field for $ 146,000, rent a giant beet harvester truck the size of an aircraft carrier for $ 24,000 and drive to the beet field.

The whole field is withered. The beets are dead. What kind of shit farmer lets his beets die so another shit farmer can’t harvest them? I drive my harvester all over the field, but it doesn’t pick up beets. Leaflet. I return to my farm and angrily gaze at my wheat field, which has not grown at all. Leaflet.

Beets, again

We are now in December. My cows have produced more milk, which I sullenly drive to the bakery. I sold the stupid dead beet field, recouping my loss, but I’m still around $ 350,000 and my cake prospects aren’t good. I have a lot of milk and tons of strawberries in the bakery, I have a decent amount of butter, and my chickens make more eggs, but I have no wheat to make flour or beets to make. sugar and no time to grow them, anyway.

But what if I to buy wheat? I bought grains of wheat to feed my chickens, does that mean I can just buy a ton of chicken feed, take them to the grain mill and have them make flour out of it? It’s not to start from scratch like I wanted to, but I have to do something. I take my trailer to the store, fill it with several huge bags of chicken feed, then drive to the mill, which I buy for $ 96,000. Effectively, this allows me to throw my grain there and start producing flour.

Okay. Okay! My dreams of growing everything from scratch are crumbling, but maybe I can still get some cakes out by Christmas. I’m looking for beets in the store, but they don’t sell them. They do, however, sell pallets of cane stems, which can be placed in a cane planter and planted. I don’t have the time let alone the skills to do it, but can I just bring the cane stalks to a sugar mill instead?

I buy about a thousand dollars worth of sugarcane to fill my trailer, then I realize that I can’t find a sugar mill on the map. So I built one on my property for $ 80,000. This is how desperate I have become, I am constructing entirely new industrial buildings 6 inches from the highway on land that I had planned to use for farming. I drive my cane to my brand new candy, throw it in front of it, and … yes, the factory starts producing sugar.

There is very, very little time left in December, but for the first time my bakery has all the ingredients it needs: flour, sugar, milk, eggs, butter and strawberries. As I stand outside the bakery, staring intently at my screen with pleading eyes, I see the cake production go from “Missing Ingredients” to “Running”. The sugar has arrived. They can bake the cakes.

I check the bakery storage. It is written Cake: 1.


I baked a cake. I baked a cake ! I may have added some audio to the gif above! But I made a cake! Spent $ 1,327,348 and didn’t grow a single thing on my stupid farm, but baked one fucking fruit cake.

The only thing that spoils the mood is that the bakery won’t release my cake until I have a whole pallet full of cakes, instead of just one. And I don’t have enough ingredients for a whole bunch of cakes.

So I spend the rest of December in a mad rush to deliver more milk to the butter mill, more sugar cane to the mill, more eggs to the bakery, and more wheat to the other mill. I hand an egg delivery to an AI worker but he literally drops the eggs along the way – I blame myself for telling him to drive a forklift on the freeway – so I kick his ass and pulled me together. Then I’m hit by a car, the eggs fly, and my forklift falls. I just pick up the eggs and walk down the sidewalk to the bakery, dropping them a few times. They will be delicious cakes.

It’s dark, the last hours of December are approaching and I’m sitting in front of the bakery in my truck, headlights on the loading area.

And then, as if by magic, they appear. A real strawberry cake palette that I can see with my tired farmer’s eyes.

I can’t move them – my forklift is still lying on its side along the block – so I jump in my trunk and honk. I did, and given that there are 2 hours left on game day in December, I’m going to say I did it before Christmas. I have $ 70,884 left in my bank account, which means I spent $ 1,429,116, almost all of my savings, to bake a pallet of cakes of sorts from scratch. At no time have I successfully carried out any real farming.

Just for fun, the next day I bring my palette of fruit cakes to a local restaurant to sell. They are worth $ 2,674. Merry Christmas.
