Hot Item of the Week- Delicious Chocolate Cake

The Children’s Week event starts early Saturday Friday morning. As such, many players will be attempting to wrap up the related achievements in pursuit of their 310% speed boosting world-event mount. One of the required achievements is Bad Example, which requires you to eat certain unhealthy snacks in front of your orphan. The opportunity for profit is that two of these treats are not available from vendors and can only be crafted by WoW chefs. The Delicious Chocolate Cake and Tasty Cupcake are both crafted items and should hit a premium in price during the Children’s Week event. We expect that, while both items will show a steep rise in price, The Delicious Chocolate Cake will show the strongest increase for several reasons, not the least of which is the fact that the recipe is a fairly rare drop from daily cooking quests so not all chefs will have it (in fact, we hear that some people even think that ‘the cake is a lie’).

Even if you are not a chef there will be plenty of opportunity to profit from the cake. We expect a limited supply of cakes in the AH during the event so an enterprising player may just buy them out as they become available and reprice them. At any rate, you’d do well to collect the materials and craft one (or have one crafted) now if you’re interested in the achievement and, while you’re at it, make a few more for profit. In terms of opportunity, this may be your one and only chance to have your cake and eat it too.

Yes we know a max-level player can farm the mats for this item very easily. Yes we are aware that the materials to make the item normally cost less than five or six gold if purchased from the AH. Yet, we also know that many players will be too lazy or otherwise distracted to craft or purchase the materials to craft the cake (and the cupcake) and will simply look to buy it from the AH. And this is why, for this very short window of opportunity, Delicious Chocolate Cake is our Hot Item of the Week.

    It actually started this morning Friday. And the cakes are selling like hot cakes already.

    Yep, I’ve already sold roughly 25 of them at 50-60g each. I wish I’d farmed more, but eggs are always more than I’m willing to pay for them and it actually takes a fair amount of time to farm them (took me at least an hour to fill up the 25 free backback slots I had with stacks of 10). Congratulations to anyone that was more prepared!

  3. Hiya –

    I did a full write up of my Children’s Week on my blog http://onlytenmorepoints.blogspot.com/

    I’ve earned nearly 2,500g now but it really was a flash in the pan market, I play on a fairly low population server and people are definitely finishing up with this holiday already.
