If you’re an avid Sims 4 player, you know birthdays are a big deal. Whether it’s your Sim’s birthday or that of a family member or friend, a birthday cake is essential to the celebration. However, getting a birthday cake can be challenging, especially for new players. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the steps of getting a birthday cake in Sims 4.

Step 1: Choose a Sim with a Birthday

The first step in getting a birthday cake is to select a Sim who has a birthday coming up. To do this, go to the Sim’s profile and check their age. Sims age up every 24 in-game days, so make sure you plan for the birthday celebration.

Step 2: Buy or Bake a Cake

Once you’ve selected the Sim with the upcoming birthday, it’s time to get a cake. Two ways to do this are to buy a cake or bake one yourself.

To buy a cake, go to the Buy mode in Build and Buy, and search for a cake under the Kitchen Appliances section. You can choose from various cakes, including chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry.

If you prefer to bake your cake, you must have the Baking skill at level 1 or higher. To bake a cake, go to the refrigerator and select “Cook”, followed by “Gourmet Cooking.” Choose the “Cake” option and select the flavor you want.

Step 3: Place the Cake on a Surface

Once you’ve bought or baked the cake, you must place it on a surface to prepare for the birthday celebration. Make sure you have a table or countertop to put the cake on.

Select the cake in your inventory and drag it to the table or countertop to place it on a surface. Once you’ve placed the cake on the surface, you can click on it to add candles.

Step 4: Add Candles to the Cake

Adding candles to the cake is an essential part of the birthday celebration. To add candles, click on the cake on the surface and select “Add Birthday Candles.” You can then choose the number of candles you want to add to the cake based on the Sim’s age.

Step 5: Celebrate the Birthday

With the cake prepared and the candles lit, it’s time to celebrate Sim’s birthday. Click on the cake and select “Blow Out Candles” to start the celebration.

Once the candles are blown out, the Sim will age up to the next life stage. If the Sim is a child, they will age up to a teenager; if they are already a teenager, they will age up to a young adult.


Getting a birthday cake in Sims 4 is essential to celebrating your Sim’s birthday. Whether you buy or bake a cake, place it on a surface and add candles to prepare for the celebration. With this step-by-step guide, you can celebrate your Sim’s birthday like a pro in no time!
