Is your Bewitching Baking still greyed out in the back of your inventory list with the other locked goal items? If not, it may be in your deco list but you're not seeing it - there are a lot of decos, after all.

If you've double checked and are sure the decos were not awarded to your account, you'll have to open a Support Ticket with the team here.
Even purchasing dozens of goal appliances doesn't help to build them. That's good neighbors I've accumulated over many years. Having 80+ appliance slots does help with the side goal, that usually takes a day.

It's also a tremendous help to already have 8-12 of the 5-day goal appliances already in inventory, along with enough parts to build one without taking away from collecting parts for the 14-day goal. And keeping those out until they are mastered, too!
I've started another smaller Bakery and it's hard with only 18 slots and having to build all the 5-day goal ovens from scratch!
Hey Lady Laura, I'm one of those 200 neighbors (I'm actually 4-5 of them), I'll see if I can help some.

The real benefit to being high level, and having been high level is that you already have the 5-day goal ovens in inventory.
Finish the recipes you have out to Mastery level 2 (to get the first gem) and start storing them as you need more slots. You can come back for the last gem later.
We expect a goal to drop tomorrow, early in the day go ahead and start 6 Lattes. Later in the day (5-6pm EST), go ahead and start 4 Espressos. The worst that can happen is the push the 5-day goal out and you have Lattes. I like Latte anyway.
As soon as you can, when the main goal drops around 3pm EST, request and gift parts for the first oven. Don't accept the gifts until you have enough of each part to finish an oven. You can decline some if you have too many of one or the other. I usually keep trying, Dad's 1 & 3(Don't Tip Me) usually send the part you need the most of, Dad's 2 & 4 usually send the part you only need 12 of. Once you have the right balance, you're ready to get started.
At this point you should have 9 ovens tied up with the first part of the 5-day goal, 6 more on the second part of the 5-day goal, and 2-3 of the ovens for the main goal. The side goal can wait, you still have 13-14 days and you can work on it between the 5-day goals.
Later in the night (~9pm EST) the 5-day goal should drop, now your Espressos are ready and you can serve them. There's a food to go with them, if it's short enough to finish before going to bed, go ahead with that. If it's longer (my favorite!) start them and you can serve them in the morning. That's the first part of the 5-day goal! AND you already have the Lattes finished for the second part!

The side goal can wait, you still have 13-14 days and you can work on it between the 5-day goals. Even with a stupid amount of too many oven slots, I usually pick a day between the 5-day goals to work on it.
Hopefully, the 5-day goal is an oven you already have in inventory. If not you'll have to spend some requests to build those. Watch the amounts needed to see how many you need. For example, if the first part says you need to serve 12 servings, 3 ovens will take 4 rounds. Four ovens only take 3 rounds, and with 6 you can do it in only 2 rounds. But notice that 5 is no better than 4. This last goal, you needed 14. I did 3 ovens a couple of times and built another one to get 4 ovens a couple of rounds.
Do the same thing for the ovens in the main goal. And try to time finishing the 3-hours at night, that way you can do the first 5-hour recipes overnight. Same pattern on the second ovens, finish the 2 hours at night and you can start the 7 hour overnight.
Once you get to the second ovens, you can plan out better since the times are more locked in. You can only get 3 rounds of 7 hour recipes in a day, and only 2 of the 10 hours. Keep baking the 2 hour recipes from the first oven to get collectables, these are crucial to finishing the second ovens quickly!
We're neighbors, you can ask for more specific help!
That's all great goal advice. I've only two things to add:
1 - If the goal pattern holds, the 5 Day Goal will start Wednesday at 5:30pm PDT/8:30pm EDT, not Tuesday.
2 - Players with enough coins to feel comfortable with wasting some like to use the "dump method" to gather a lot of collectibles to quickly build goal appliances faster. That's a big part of how players get so many built so quickly without having to use gems or wait days for gifts/requests.
If you're new to it, there's a post here that explains the "dump method" in further detail.
Thanks for this. Super helpful. Am high level and coin rich but only have 18 oven slots. i'm barely finishing and that's mainly thanks to of my beautiful nbrs. I think (because of the glitch and my all the way over here timezone) I skated over the last goal with about 4 hours to spare and that's after skipping the 5 dayer cuz I already had Headless. If they ask for any ovens released during the pandemic I'm skrooed tho cuz I don't have any in store.
