Free Cake! The Sims Social First Birthday Quests Guide [Exclusive]

The Sims Social birthday quests
Yes, you read that right. In honor of The Sims Social's first birthday, EA and Playfish have provided us an exclusive free cake for your Sim to enjoy. And what a strange trip it's been for the duo's top Facebook game. At launch, it nearly booted competitor Zynga from the top spot, and has recently seen more game-changing updates than you can shake a Sim at. (The first and last lame joke ... we promise.)

To commemorate the occasion, this week will feature a new quest each day, taking players back to some of the funniest and most exciting weeks from the past 12 months. Each quest unlocks a limited edition reward (listed below). For some anniversary fun, players who complete every daily quest will be rewarded with the Scidaddle City Scooter. Below is a full overview of all the quests and helpful tips to complete them, courtesy of The Sims Social team at Playfish:
