A Parent’s Love Side quest

In order to start the quest, you need to have built Tarrey Town first. All you need is the big house in the south of the island. Once it’s there, go behind it. Approach the middle window and listen in on the conversation. You’ll hear two concerned parents talking about their daughter who doesn’t eat. The only thing she wants is cake. A cake you’re going to have to bake.

Zelda BoTW cake recipe

Here’s what you’ll need to combine in order to make a cake:

  • Bird Eggs
  • Goat Butter
  • Cane Sugar
  • Tabantha Wheat
  • Monster extract
As you can see, it’s pretty standard baking fare – apart from the eggs. Who puts eggs in their cake?

Where to find cake ingredients in Zelda BoTW

Getting the ingredients is just a matter of visiting the right vendors. The eggs and butter can be bought from the trader in Kakariko Village, in the Lanaryu Region, south of the Wetlands. You can buy the sugar and the wheat from the peddler at Rito Village, in the northwestern part of the map. The monster extract is sold by the secret vendor Kilton. He can be a bit tough to find, since he regularly moves. Make sure you have a bunch of monster parts before looking him up.




    the eggs are not a requirement


      Eggs are a requirement, but not sugar.


        Instead off eggs, you’ll want milk.


    Where do you find sugar? I keep going to the spot you have marked, but no one’s selling it.


      It’s still in the form of canes afaik.


      you can buy it at rito village


      You can find cane sugar at Rito Village. That is the only form of sugar there is and it works


        No!U can get it in almost every village.


    Lol, who puts eggs in a cake? Um everybody, otherwise you’d bake a brick.


      It’s a joke. Why is there monster extract in the cake


        When you get the extract, the description says it makes things taste good. Not sure why monster extract would make things taste good, but whatever, mmmmmkay.

    When they say sugar they mean sugar canes you can find them at the rito village.


    The moment I read ‘monster’ I went to Fang n Bone and didn’t find a cake or dialogue for a cake. So I bought a monster extract, on a whim- maybe I needed to bake this monstrous cake. I looked online for regular cake ingredients because I didn’t want to leave any out and waste materials. But then found this guide and spoiled it a bit for myself. Oh well, I’m surprised I was on the right track! That’s why this game is amazing. You think “Maybe I have to do this? Ohh…no, that is too complex. There’s gotta be a more obvious way” but then it turns out the more complex solution is the correct solution! Hardly any games are like this, there aren’t any restrictions 😀

    A perfect example of this is the crown of bone shrine. My first thought was the correct thought but I thought it was way too complex for a video game. :p so instead I searched around for 30 min when I should’ve stuck with my gut!


    This really helped me out. Thanks for posting.


    After I did made the cake I couldn’t find the house but then I found it.Phew
