It’s time to celebrate a special event with Birthday Cakes in Fortnite! The battle royale game is celebrating its sixth birthday, which is a huge milestone. Epic Games has just released another birthday event, giving players a chance to earn a couple of free cosmetic items.

Free rewards need to be unlocked through exclusive birthday quests. One of these quests requires you to consume Fortnite Birthday Cakes, which could be tricky if you don’t know where they are located. However, we’ve got you covered!

This guide will reveal all Birthday Cake locations in Fortnite Chapter 4 – Season 4. You need to consume 5 of them to complete the challenge and get 20,000 XP.

Fortnite Birthday Cakes locations

Fortnite Battle Royale was released on September 26, 2017. Despite being six years old, the video game is still very popular and has millions of active players. Considering that Epic Games has done a fantastic job with the game, this comes as no surprise.

The sixth birthday comes just a couple of months ahead of the rumored Chapter 5. Due to this, it might be the only birthday event that takes place on the current island. Once again, Epic has put several Fortnite Birthday Cakes all over the map, and you’ll have to find them to complete the latest challenge.

Fortunately, this is one of the easiest challenges in the video game. Birthday Cakes are located all over the Fortnite map, and you can find them in each named location. If you’re not sure where exactly to find them, please refer to the image above.

Once you consume five Fortnite Birthday Cakes, you will complete the challenge and earn 20,000 XP. In addition to this, you’ll make progress toward unlocking free cosmetic items.

Keep in mind that this is a limited-time event, meaning that the challenge will expire in either a week or two.
