    Perhaps we need to think outside of the cake box yes for next year before we have a terrible accident involving a hungry orc and a leaning tower of cake.

    Perhaps we could have a plate of sweetrolls in future - one for each year?

    And perhaps each year a different furnishing in the shape of a cake too yes? So we may have a cake corner in our homes.

    I was hoping we could get second cake tower, then a third and finally build the fifth onto the base made of those three.

    This...
    one of the most useful and important additions..

    GET YOUR DAILIES
    To help you identify what daily and weekly quests are available to you, we have also added the “Adventurer's Almanac, 2nd Edition" to the game. Upon reading it, if you have completed the Mages Guild quest line, the new book will be added to your Eidetic Memory and be accessible from your Journal at any time. You can find the book somewhere near Chef Donolon in each capital city.

    The book contains everything you need to know about the available weekly and daily quests, including their location, activity type, requirements, and recommended level of experience to complete. There's always adventure to be had in Tamriel, and now, you'll always be able to find it!

    The XP bonus does indeed stack with a scroll or potion and ESO+, correct?

    Does the memento work like the Pie of Misrule?

    The XP bonus from the cake stacks with XP scrolls & XP potions but overrides and refreshes the Jester XP buff (if you still happened to have the Jester XP buff active on a character, even one that is logged out, [the XP timer is saved and stalled when logged off]).
    After doing the short Cake quest (which is only a few lines of NPC dialogue), you can then summon and spawn the 3rd Annual Jubilee Cake from using the Memento, then click on the summoned Cake itself to get the XP buff.
    So, with the Cake, it is an extra step of clicking, whereas with the Jester event, you just used The Pie of Misrule and got the XP buff automatically after clicking it in the Memento list.
    Make sure to use the 3rd Annual Jubilee Cake Memento before entering certain places, like Cyrodiil, because you cannot use Mementos in Cyrodiil, for whatever reason that ZOS decided.
    @ZOS_GinaBruno @ZOS_JessicaFolsom Is there any particular reason why Mementos usage is disabled in Cyrodiil and Battlegrounds?
