Grab some cake. It's time to celebrate Fortnite's third birthday, and Epic has released a number of birthday challenges for players. The biggest challenge this year asks players to dance in front of different birthday cakes 10 times. Thankfully, you don't have to go cake hunting without some assistance. We've put this helpful guide together to show you where the cakes are located in Fortnite.

Your reward for completing this challenge is the Cakey wrap, which gives your weapons and vehicles a fun bit of pink and green frosting. There are four total birthday challenges to complete, including "play 10 matches," "outlast 500 opponents," and "and gain 50 health or shield from birthday cakes." That last challenge will get you 80,000 XP, so you might as well consume each cake you come across.
