Fortnite Birthday Cake Locations: Where To Dance Guide For Birthday Challenge

Dance like no one is watching.


Season 10 of Fortnite is upon us. The new season officially kicks off tomorrow, August 1, but in the meantime, there's still a little time left to take part in the game's second birthday celebration on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch, and mobile devices. Alongside the event comes another handful of challenges, each of which will unlock a new birthday-themed reward when completed, with a special birthday cake pickaxe awaiting players who finish all of the tasks.

There are four birthday challenges to complete in total, most of which are self-explanatory and can be cleared fairly easily simply by playing the game as normal. The one that may give you a bit of trouble, however, is to dance in front of different birthday cakes. A similar challenge was featured as part of last year's birthday event, but these cakes are hidden in different locations, which may pose a problem if you don't know where to look. Fortunately, we've put together a handy map and guide to help you find the birthday cake locations.

Now Playing: Fortnite - Dance In Front Of 10 Different Birthday Cakes Location Guide | Birthday Challenges

Where Are The Birthday Cake Locations?

You need to dance in front of 10 birthday cakes in total in order to complete this challenge, and they're scattered all across Fortnite's island. Fortunately, once you know where to look, the cakes should be easy enough to spot, as they'll be surrounded by balloons. We've put together a map of the birthday cake locations below:

How To Complete The Challenge

Once you know where to look for the birthday cakes, completing this challenge is simply a matter of going to the right location and then busting a move in front of the confection. If you're low on health, you can also grab a slice of cake to recover; not only will it help replenish your health and shield, it'll count toward your progress in a separate birthday challenge, allowing you to kill two birds with one stone.

Unlike some other challenges of this nature, which allow you to revisit the same locations in different matches and still make progress toward completing the task, you'll need to visit 10 different cakes in order to clear this challenge. If you need a visual walkthrough, you can watch us complete the challenge in the video at the top of this guide.
