Jasmine Huffman’s Bakery

It’s always been my cannon that Sam’s older’s sister Jasmine was going to open a bakery. That’s the problem with legacy games (unless you cheat…and um…yeah), you never get to the play the spares that leave home. I plan on playing Jasmine a bit with this build though to test it out more.

So I build her a little bakery in Magnolia Promenade with a small apartment for Jasmine above it. And then I went overboard and built the rest of the commercial block.

The lot is a brick, three story apartment block witha  bookstore facade out front, and a little bakery with patio sitting nearby. Above it is a blue house-looking apartment.

The bakery is a small place with only a few tables, most people either have take out or they might sit outside. Where there’s a coffee cart – one of Jasmine’s friend’s owns it.

The bakery alley has a little coffee cart so you can get a mocha with your cupcakes.

The interior is cozy. I’m particularly fond of the little window to the cupcake machine – I remember a pizza place as a kid that had a window to watch them make pizza, and figured this would be fun. (I’m playing with the new WordPress editor and it looks like finally! we can turn off auto scroll for galleries! Yay!)

I’m also happy with the “chalkboard wall” I made with drawings of cakes in the corner. I wish we had more letters to play with though.

The bakery proper takes up a lot more space than the front. But is a lot less interesting than the the front. There’s the cupcake room, a little computer to do finances and manage emails and stuff and storage. (It also looks like some stuff is coming through the back wall, oops!) And just now – a week later I realized I probably need to add a fridge if I’m going to bake cakes here. Maybe stick to cupcakes?

The bakery interior is brick and cement and stainless steel appliances. You can just see the cupcake maker through an archway.

Upstairs is Jasmine’s apartment. It’s a tiny one-bedroom affair with her pesonality in mind. You can only access the place from the backyard and the stairs up to her balcony. So it’s a very private residence.

Jazz's backyard has a yoga mat, two planters, and two bug boxes - I just love how they look.

I play tested the whole build, so the pictures might be a little different from what’s on the gallery, but that version is playable – AND I do know that sims just walk through the curtains that seperate the bedroom here from the living room.

The main room is blue with a living, dining, and galley kitchen. It's separated by a curtain over a double archway from the bedroom.

Jasmine is very fond of pink…I’m not – but it was different to make such a pink bedroom outside the various rainbow build challenges. She would love this room through.

A very pink bedroom with a luxurious bed. It's small so there's just room for the bed and tiny end tables.

And that’s the bakery. The Bakery only version on the gallery has the bakery – but the living area above it is a blank slate for your sim. The building to the left is a shell as well.

But I wasn’t content to leave it a shell. And so ended up making two more retail stores and two more apartments. They’re all available in the “complete” build. But also a couple are also available on their own – they’re a little different in their stand alone version to either reduce packs or to have a little more fun and give them a bit more love.

Focusing on the left side of the bakery  - the apartments, bookstore, and you can just see the widows of the laundry mat.

First off is the laundry mat. It’s in the back corner of the block and is just a simple collection of washers and dryers. I really loved how it looks with the window decals. Let’s pretend that says Laundry in simlish. The stand alone version has a cash register – but I was afraid to put multiples in the complete one.

Looking into the laundry mat from the alley. There's two rows of machines and a small couch to wait on.

In the front next to the bakery is a small bookstore. I used a facade from Get Famous, but if you removed the facade, then you could have a proper entrance. (In the complete build you can get in via the alley entrance).

Cozy bookstore with walls covered with books. The central table has piles of books on display. Behind it (not pictures, is a desk).

Above the bookstore is a tiny studio apartment. Kind of a modern chic look? Maybe. Lots of black and industrial furniture. It has a murder-Murphy bed so be careful. I’m not sure if the bookstore owner rents this apartment out or has chosen to live here. I’m leaning toward renting it out as it doesn’t quite seem like a book-lovers aesthetic.

The corner desk in the corner is made from the wall bookcase – it’s not functional as a desk of course, but I thought it fit the room and it would work as a tiny desk in real life.

The final apartment is a two-story, two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment. The studio apartment has an entrance on the alley side. This nicer apartment has (sadly) a ladder entrance. I tried the debug apartment fire escape ladder, but I couldn’t figure out how to give them a proper entrance.

Another image of the back of the build, it focuses on the apartment side with a ladder up one story to a fancy front door, and another ladder that goes to the roof.

It’s another modern build. Downstairs is the living/dining/kitchen. I thought the curved stairs worked well with the half-walls. I look forward to trying that out in other builds. And I don’t think I’ve seen that picture I used in the dining room before! I need to filter by color more often.

Upstairs is a music room – the couple that lives here is very musically inclined. The main bedroom has three guitars, lol. I made a pre-teen or teenager bedroom. Feels to me that they’re just starting to figure out what they like and who they are. I have never used so much from the luxury pack – but something about the main bedroom just made it work. Perhaps one of them is a rockstar?

I don’t often share the bathrooms of my builds anymore, they tend to be boring, cramped, and hard to tell what’s going on. But the upstairs pink bathroom I had to share! I don’t think it matches the aethetics of the folks who live in this apartment, but I was really happy with how it turned out. I realized I could manipulate the tiles with < and > to get the pattern to fit the room better.
