There's a cooking competition coming to your farm and you've been invited to compete! You'll be given a theme on each phase that you'll need to bring to life through your baking!
If you are at least Level 12, you will see a pop-up inviting you to the Confectionery Showdown! You will need to force close the game to see the update, which means to clear it from your mobile device's memory or even reboot your device.
Start off the event by tapping on the Competition Stage located behind Eagle Eye Eddie. The Competition Stage is where your cakes are baked and shown off for judging.
Finish the rare Confectionery Showdown items List on or before June 4, 2017 to get the exclusive Chef Cat which will stay at your farm for the next 30 days!

Temporary Place of Interest: Prep Kitchen
The Prep Kitchen is a temporary area that will drop the different items needed in each recipe. For example, it will drop Vanilla which you will need to make Raspberry Cupcakes in Phase 1.
This boost gives you twice the amount of rare Event items from the Glade, Pond, Mine, Pier, Sailboat and your Prized Animals once it's activated. It will appear for free sometimes. If you have push notifications enabled you will receive a push notification when the boost is free. It can also drop from opening Collection Prize Boxes on occasion.
Temporary Farm Hands: Buddy the Baker and Host Dan
You can purchase Buddy the Baker, and/or the spectacle-wearing Host, Dan, as Farm Hands to help you out during the Confectionery Showdown Event. They will give you a higher chance of finding rare event items and more! Please be aware that they are temporary, and will leave your farm when the event ends.
