I don't know about that notification you received but I think their notifications system does not work properly, I receive some saying to go and unlock the candy furniture even though the event is over and I have unlocked them all already.
About the house tabs try closing and reopening your game a couple of times, each time it will download some additional mini updates and you may need to turn off and on your device as well.

Thanks for your reply. I'll definitely try restarting my device sooner than later; hard closing and re-opening the game hasn't effected it yet.

I attached a screenshot of the notification as received yesterday. To be honest I haven't spent time engaging with SFP today, but for posterity's sake, here is the correct wording of the announced event requiring chocolatier skills:

This was my first event and I didn't even think to use LPs. I had 4 sims working near continuously to build up the 12 piece collection .... only to realize that that would only win me the first prize pack. I'd have to start all over again for the next one!

So obviously there isn't any way to get all the prize packs without using LPs. What strategy do you use when using LPs to speed up the tasks to ensure you aren't wasting them? e.g) How can you be sure you end up with a chocolate that you haven't already collected?

Don't pop all 4 bubbles at once if you only need to collect one or two left to fill your set. Otherwise just know there will be some repeats before you fill the whole set.

With 3-4 sims working and never having done the hobby before -- oh and lots of using LPs once I got to 1:59 on the task -- I did finish all the sets with a few hours to spare.

I think I filled about 4 sets when it first came out, but I was able to finish the remaining 3 with a few days to spare. The best thing is what TBD-36 said. Don't pop all 4 bubbles if you only need 1 or 2 left in the grid. Restart if you fill it and then pop those bubbles. Of course there is no way of knowing which bubble holds which chocolate, just luck.

Since for this event it was impossible to level up a Sim beforehand to prepare (unless you were around for the previous Chocolatier event), the first thing I did was use LPs to speed through enough repetitions to get just one Sim to level 6 and open up the grid.

Also, you may already know, but you can have one extra Sim working on the hobby in a neighbor's town. This makes a huge difference for events involving hobbies that can only be completed by one Sim at a time (e.g. survivalist).
