Getting Started

To start this quest, go to Lumbridge Castle and speak with the Cook on the first floor. He says that he's forgotten some of the ingredients for the cake that he was going to bake for the King. Tell him that you'll help him out, and he says that he needs some milk, an egg, and some flour.

The Castle Cook

So, leave the castle and head north along the road until you reach the General Store. Buy a bucket for 2gp, and a pot for 1gp. Now we can get all of the ingredients for the cake! Here's a map of the useful places used during this quest:
