    1. The game will usually let you know with a pop-up message. Alternatively, you can click on the face icon where you track their moods. After clicking this icon there will be a bar at the top of the pop up window. If this bar is green all the way your birthday is that day. You can also track it this way, for example, if the bar is only half full it means its halfway there.
      Hope this is of some help.

    2. It will say ” Y/N birthday is coming up! ” Or ” Y/N birthday is here!Make sure to throw a party! ” Something like that anyway !

    3. I have a problem with this. I have a toddler to celebrate his birthday. I baked the cake, planned a party etc.. until I click on the cake and the option to blow out candles don’t even show! When I try to age him up manually he’s not even in the list of sims to age up! Something clearly is wrong but I can’t figure it out. Please help!

  1. Every time I make a cake they take a piece of it before they even put it down, let alone before I can get candles on it. Any idea why this is happening?

  2. Same problem as above. I’ve made 4 cakes now, and every time im like waiting for the second they pull it out of the oven, but they are always immediately holding a slice. One of my sims aged automatically, but I can’t get my other one to age up. I had a party on his birthday, but he didn’t age. And every time I try to have a party now, it tells me nobody is having a birthday in my house.

  3. I downloaded the Digital Deluxe Upgrade, and when I try to make my sim bake a cake, there aren’t cake selections to choose from. How do I fix this?

    1. Click on the oven, then click cook, and then cakes will come up. You can make cakes even with a level one cook.

  4. Did you all think of making the cake BEFORE the party? It says you can make it in advance or have the Caterer do it

  5. To make a toast. Make sure the Bday Sims and an adult Sims are both holding a drink. Then click on the “Friendly” action, then “Make toast” action. Your Sim will make a short toast

  6. I have checked your blog and i’ve found some duplicate content, that’s
    why you don’t rank high in google’s search results, but there is a tool
    that can help you to create 100% unique content, search for:
