There are some things in life that just require cake, like a birthday celebration. Ahead of the party, you can order a vanilla cake with chocolate frosting and sprinkles from your local baker, or opt to make vegan cupcakes from Pinterest right in your own kitchen. Either way, you can’t go wrong, as the treat will likely complement the decorations, games, and personal milestone so well. Before you slice into it, you can snap a picture of the cake sitting on your table with 20, 22, or 25 candles on top, and take your celebration to social media with these cake quotes for Instagram and TikTok.

Your followers will love to join in on the fun, and wish you or the BFF you’re celebrating a very happy birthday. They may flood the comments section with balloon and confetti emojis, and messages like, “Another lap around the sun!” If you took a particularly appetizing picture of the cake, they might even ask what flavor it is, how you put together something so tasty, or jokingly if you can pass a slice through the screen. (Why hasn’t that technology been invented yet?)

To get this eye-catching picture, you probably worked the cake’s angles, and took videos of you pulling out a slice, circling the top design, or going through the recipe’s steps. You may have taken some cues from your favorite content creators as well, and tagged them as a thank you for the #inspo. These birthday cake quotes will top off your tasty cake pictures, and make them even sweeter. Grab one to add some deliciousness to your feed.
