Celebrate Fortnite's third birthday by dancing near some lovely cakes

Wondering where all the birthday cakes in Fortnite are? The battle royale game’s third birthday is being ushered in with a special in-game event, boasting its own cosmetic rewards and a set of challenges to accompany them. That’s right, Fortnite has now been out for three years – if the game was a person it would be ready to throw a tantrum if its pacifier went missing.

One of the main challenges in this birthday event set asks players to dance in front of different birthday cakes, which can be found around the Fortnite map. Completing this challenge really is as easy as it sounds: simply locate one of the Fortnite birthday cakes (we’ll show you where they all are) and pop an emote nearby.

You will need to dance in front of ten different birthday cakes in Fortnite, so it is very helpful to know where they all are. Fortunately for you, they are all really large and you can find one at pretty much every point of interest on the map. Surviving long enough to dance close to one is a different matter entirely, especially if you’re near the stomping grounds of one of the Fortnite bosses.
