You have tons of ways to get this dessert!

It’s a cooked dish made in the kitchen of your upgraded farmhouse or cookout kit. But aside from preparing it yourself, you may also obtain it in:

  • Krobus’ Shop every Saturday (50g to 500g).
  • Feast of the Winter Star. Probable gift from your secret gift-giver.
  • Stardrop Saloon’s Rotating Stock (960g).
  • Letter from Mom (only applicable to male characters).
  • Reward for accomplishing Chef’s Bundle in the Bulletin Board (3).
  • Drop from Big Slimes (0.1%). It gives two if you have a Burglar’s Ring.
  • Statue of Endless Fortune every Spring 10, 14, and Summer 4 (some villagers’ birthdays).

Consuming this dessert gives you loads of healing effects, but adding Qi Seasoning increases its benefits by 80%. Here’s a side-by-side comparison of this sweet course with and without the add-on:

In making this dish, you’ll need a Melon, Sugar, Egg, and Wheat Flour. However, you’ll only get its recipe from The Queen of Sauce on the 21st of Summer, Year 2.


Putting it on sale gives you 480g. But if you add the seasoning, your profit increases by 50%, turning its value into 720g.
