Do you live in a climate that's still receiving snow and other winter weather? Wish that you could throw on some shorts and flip-flops and hit the beach? Well, you can, at least virtually via Cafe World's Spring Fling Catering Order. Don't get confused - this order has nothing to do with the two Easter-themed events that have also recently launched in the game (the Egg Hunt Catering Order, and the Egg Hunt Goals - both of which have guides here on Games.com - The Blog!) - this is a completely separate order that will see you unlocking a new recipe for your cookbook, if you can complete it in time.
This order is a fairly complex one, and fairly difficult as well, requiring you to cook three dishes, along with collecting three items from your friends. You'll have five days as your starter time limit, which does give you more time to accomplish these six tasks, but don't say I didn't warn you - this one's a toughie.
To start, you'll be spending most of your time cooking three dishes. You'll need to serve Lemon Butter Lobster (a two-hour dish) a whopping 550 times, Seafood Paella (a 14-hour dish) 250 times, and Sirius Sorbet (a 30-minute dish) 150 times. Sure, the Sirius Sorbet and Seafood Paella may not take high-level chefs long to complete, but 550 Lemon Butter Lobsters? Good luck to all of us with that one.
You'll be able to bring 13 of your friends in on this mission with you (for a total Catering Crew of 14 people), but you'll be on your own with collecting the three collectible items: 19 Plastic Cups, 10 Beach Towels, and 9 Suntan Lotions. Is it just me, or does this catering order seem more like a Summer-themed one than Spring? Anyway, you'll be able to gather these items by simply sending out individual gift requests to your friends asking for them.
If you can manage to complete everything within five days, you'll receive the three-star rating, 12 Catering Points, 6,300 Cafe Points, 175,000 coins and the Crab Spring Roll recipe. If you can't manage it within five days, but still finish within a week after starting, you'll receive two stars, eight Catering Points, 4,500 Cafe Points and 125,000 coins. Finally, if you finish the mission at any time after the first week, you'll receive a single star, four Catering Points, 2,700 Cafe Points, and 75,000 coins.
Luckily, this catering order doesn't seem to be time-specific, in terms of how long it will be available to complete, so if you'd rather wait until a later time to attempt it (say, when you can outfit your cafe with more Lightning Stoves), go right ahead. Just keep in mind that your best chance of finishing is right at the start, since most of your friends will be working on it / close to finishing it already as well.
