Having a hard time leveling up your Farmville Sweet Shop? Feel like it’s moving at a snail’s pace? Want to get the machines unlocked already, in case they’re required for future all farm quests? Your Dirt Farmer team published a level up strategy guide to the Apothecary, and it was brought to our attention that many players wanted one for the Sweet Shop as well. Without further delay, here it is. For the complete guide to the Sweet Shop click here. Please do share with friends if you find our post helpful.
On the surface, the Sweet Shop appears simple and straight forward. The game gives you sets of orders, you make the recipes required for them and fill them. You get points for each recipe completed, 5 bonus points for filling each order and a varying number of bonus points for completing all orders on your board. You can see how many bonus points your current order board will grant at completion, in the lower left corner of the Sweet Shop screen.
So why is it so slow to level up? The orders, as you make ingredients and recipes often leave several of your unlocked machines empty. Since the highest number of points comes from completing recipes instead of completing orders or boards, you’re missing out when that happens. To level up quickly, you don’t ever want a machine empty, you want them all crafting something at all times.
Easy enough to just throw something in each machine right? – but that is only part of the strategy. To speed up leveling the Sweet Shop, you also need to consider which recipes give the most points at completion and also which have the easiest ingredients to obtain.
First lets take a look at the Elixir Mixer.
The Rainbow Potion Recipe is one of the early unlocks available as soon as you hit level 5. It requires just one raw ingredient, a Crushed Candy which you can harvest from your Candy Crusher every 5 Minutes.
They give 95 points each and take 6 hours. If you can visit your farm to switch it over 3 times a day, you get 285 points per day, and even if you can only get there twice it’s still 190 points.
If you opt to focus on orders and level up recipes at the same time, this is a good recipe to keep on hand, as it is an ingredient in several others. Keeping Rainbow Potion cooking whenever you are not making an order-required recipe in your Elixir Mixer, will not only give you those extra points to level up, but also help speed up completion of new order boards, when you have those ingredients ready and waiting.
Now lets have a look at the Confectionary
For easiest leveling up in the Confectionary, make Bubble Brittle which unlocks at level 6
Bubble Brittle grants 185 points on completion and takes 12 hours to craft. It is a good one to keep extra of on hand if you do orders as well, as it is an ingredient in several other recipes. Stopping by to switch these over just twice per day is 370 points from this machine.
The benefit of Bubble Brittle over other recipes in the Confectionary is that ingredients are fast and easy to obtain. Raw Sugar can be harvested every 2 minutes.
If you continue to harvest your Sugar Processor and make more Confectioner’s Sugar while the Unicorn Fizzes are cooking, you can have all ingredients ready for either of these recipes in just 14 to 16 minutes.
The Candy Crafter.
The easiest recipe for leveling up in the Candy Crafter is Cream Delight which unlocks at level 9
Cream Delight also takes 12 hours to craft and grants 185 points at completion. Stopping by to change it over twice per day gives 370 points per day from the machine.
If you craft ingredients at the same time, it will take under 20 minutes to have all the ingredients ready for this recipe.
The Baking Oven
The Baking Oven also has two recipes with quick items/ ingredients and high point yields.
Double Frosted Cupcakes unlock at Level 16 and grants 275 points upon completion.
Mint Meringue Surprise unlocks at level 18 and grants 430 points upon completion.
Each of these recipes takes 16 hours to craft. You can get all the ingredients for Double Frosted Cupcakes in about 8-10 minutes and all of the ingredients for Mint Meringue Surprise in about 12-15 minutes. If you can manage to switch them over 3 times in 2 days you will get 825 points in 2 days from the Double Frosted Cupcakes or 1290 points from the Mint Meringue Surprise.
In summary, if you use this strategy and check your farm/change over twice per day, at level 18 you would be gaining around 1360 -1575 points per day. As soon as level 6 you gain around 560 points per day. (Not counting any of the 1 hour or less ingredients, so would really be a little more).
Leveling up the Sweet Shop goes much quicker if you plan, make sure your machines are always full and that you choose the ones with the highest point yields with the lowest ingredient time investment. It is up to you whether to fill orders concurrent with the level up focus, or do one then the other. Hope you have found this guide helpful and Happy Farming!
