    Default 6 year old birthday cake broken

    Trying to turn in my cake for a +2 tome but since this update it fails. The Genie spawns and then vanishes. Anyone figured out a way to get this to work? I know im not the only one who still has this cake

    could this be fixed?

    give us the opportunity to eat them during the holidays that are coming...

    The best advice I can give you is to eat them as soon as you get them. Don't assume they will always be functional.

    Good advice, and i blame only myself and my long absence from the game. But I still wish i could be given some more time so that all my chars can taste their sweetness

    I saved a couple so I could pop the Djinni out and make people dance.

    I assumed Turbine would break the code/deactivate the code at some point. It's not like +2 tomes are hard to find.

    I did it 2 days ago (on my airship, if that's relevant) to get a +2 CHA tome and it worked fine.

    I don't remember if the Djinni spawned or not, but I got the barter window and traded the cake for the tome.

    Well, this thread was made yesterday. Has anyone had any success more recently?

    I have same problem but am trying on a level 4 and the cake says caster level 6. Has anyone tried with someone over 6?

    This has been added to the Known Issues. We'll work to get them working again, but it probably won't be able to make it into the next patch. Hopefully it'll make it into the next full update though.

    I used the original first year anniversary cake and the Djinni would not recognize me as his master. I sent in a report and received another cake, but the same issue happened again. The mail said that if this did not work, that nothing could be done , so I did not send in another bug report.

    Honestly, I keep them around now just for the nostalgia - not to use.

    Yeah, but I was trying to make inventory space for my 4th account bound level 3 charisma +2 ring...can't have too many of those.
