Tips and Tricks for Cake Mania Main Street!

[Post New]by bfgEuphrates on Oct 7, 09 10:09 AM
Hi Everyone,

Here are some tips and tricks to help you restore Main Street!

Happy Hippies – You can literally feed the Hippy customers anything and they will go on their merry way. All they're looking for is food, so you can serve them any item you have!

Vampires are Dangerous – Try to serve the Vampires first because they will morph the rest of your customers and change their orders when they do so. If their order bubble is flashing blue and white, prepare yourself for more hungry Vampires!

Cookie Monsters
– If your customers are getting grumpy, just toss a few cookies their way. This won’t help some of your morphing customers, but it will help keep your regular customers happy while they’re waiting.

Be sure to add your own tricks or tips since every player has their own secrets of game play!

Happy gaming!

bfgEuphrates

EDIT: Thanks for the heads up on the Hippy everyone! I've updated these tips to reflect what you all found.

I might be wrong...but I found that the hippies only pay anywhere from $5-$7 no matter what you throw them. I was going out of my way making 3 flower bouquets for a level to no good end before figuring that out.

Hi Belle ~ i think you're right, i found this with the hippies in the cake shop, i had one level where it was hippie after hippie after hippie i must have served every hippie in the whole town, and thought boy i'm gonna make a pile of money off these guys, i even gave some of them unfrosted cakes and they left happy

was surprised when done i had only just hit superstar sales, and when stats showed i had somewhere around 350 i think in tips, and 40 whole $'s in sales

so even tho they may tip a lot, i don't think it makes any difference what you give them, be it a single unfrosted cake or a triple frosted with fancy topping, they are still always going to pay the minimum ~ the size of the tip tho may depend on how luxurious the item you serve ~ that kind of makes sense

anyway that's my 2c, but i do overall agree with you

I, too, have found Hippies paying very little. From $4.00 in Sushi shop to $6.00 in cake shop. I haven't had one payong more than $6.00 yet.

I also was wasting time making triple cakes and bouquets.

In Sushi, I found I couldn't give them much but tea, rice and noodles.

I give them unfrosted cakes in bakery now unless I made a mistake and have an extra.

In burger barn, I could give them a bun but not pattie or fish

That's an interesting tip! I honestly didn't try to give the Hippy a patty in the Burger Barn, so it's good to know that they'll only take the bun!

the hippies pay a lot more if you let a vamp or chef turn them into a hotdog or another vamp....

You get 5 upgrades for each shop. I found that if you upgrade the shop after each 5 levels that you can get perfect. Hope this helps.

In the cake shop, I found that by only using my money to upgrade one oven, one froster, one cake holder, and Jill's speed, it was easy to get super scores on every level. I don't buy multiple ovens, frosters, toppers etc. because it gets too complicated and they are unnecessary.

i managed to get $7 from the hippies in the flower shop. you can give them patties or fish, but you have to just lay the meat down, no bun. the problem i have with the hippies in the flower shop is that in each level there is only one type of flower they will pay maximum price for, and that changes with every level. i even tried to go in the same level multiple times in a row, to test them and see what they pay max for, and the type changes every time you play that level.

I have found that I could give the hippies wasabi or the salt shaker. The wasabi is easy because it is close, and especially convienient if you are about to finish another order of with wasabi.

I have this game as an app on my iPad and I don't know if all the tricks are the same, so I'm hoping someone can help. I'm trying to to prevent the pirates from making the other customers walk the plank. I was able to do it in one of the shops but can't figure out how! Does anyone know which day I should focus on for the pirates (and the vampires, for that matter)?

Much appreciated
