Default What's the best use for Victory Tokens now?

So over the last year or so, the victory token collectors wouldn't trade birthday cupcakes unless it was the birthday celebration. In anticipation of this anniversary, I saved stacks of victory tokens looking to cash in on that one useful consumable. Now I see even at the birthday celebration, they don't trade cupcakes anymore...?

Since I no longer need sweet/party/alcohol points, what's the best bang for my buck for getting rid of all these tokens? Creme Brulee to sell, or sell the tokens directly? Or some other option?

(Hopefully this doesn't get shut down as soliciting opinions -- surely there's a clear mathematical best choice here. )


UPDATE: In case anyone was having the same frustrations I was and doesn't read every reply -- they have moved the cupcakes from Sheng Yi and Zaishen Supply Masters to a new NPC named Elite Xunlai Agent Isa Ku [Baking].

Save or sell em IMO. Better to farm cupcakes and spend tokens on lunar fortunes

I don't think you can get Lunar Fortunes from Victory Tokens (I probably would have traded all these in last Feb. if that was the case. I'm pretty sure it's Lunar Tokens only that can get Fortunes -- correct me if I'm wrong).

It appears we're limited to sugar rush sweets, alcohol, party items, or XP scrolls.

They do sell them, you just need to talk the the Xunlai baker person, they trade them for 10 tokens each if I'm remembering this right.

Isa Ku! I just found him! This guy is new. The ones who used to give the cupcakes (which is still reflected on wiki, by the way), Sheng Yi and Zaishen Supply Masters, were no longer offering them and I thought I was going out of my mind.

Thanks for the nudge in the right direction.

Indeed. This anniversary totally blindsided me. I had noticed somebody posted the update notes here on Guru, paid attention about as far as "Made preparations for the Guild Wars 7th anniversary celebration," and figured it was a "preparation update" -- with the actual event to come some time later. So once I logged in a day or so after the fact I was just totally caught off guard by it actually being in progress. By then, I was like, "What's an update note?"

To save people the effort, the "easiest" baker to find is in Lion's Arch - she stands right next to the Xunlai Chests.
