Can't age up child with birthday cake after patch

What is your current game version number? 1.68.154.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All expansions, game packs & stuff packs
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Create a family with the child sim, create any cake, add birthday candles, direct child to blow out candles
What happens when the bug occurs? After the latest patch I can't age up child sim with birthday cake. After blowing candles child sim is resetted and not aging up. It happens both in old saves and new ones created after patch for testing purposes. For all other life stages cake is working fine.
What do you expect to see? Children should age up after blowing candles
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

I've also tried other options besides "blow out candles" with cake like "make a wish" for children all of them resulted in resetting and not aging.

I had this issue today in my game aging a teen to young adult.  She blew out the birthday cake candles and reset into the next room.  She didn’t age up.  I am playing on a Mac.

In my game only children are resetted each time I try to age them up with birthday cake. Happens 100% times with both old saves and new one created after the patch.

I just had this same problem.  I was able to move the teen sim and child sim out of the house and they aged up just fine.

So my game just updated yesterday and when I was playing the sims 4 , I tried ageing up my sims with a cake and they would blow them out but not age up and spawn outside.

I play on Xbox and I’m having the same issue with child sims. I was able to age up a toddler and a young adult, it wasn’t either of their birthdays. However I’ve tried multiple times and been unable to age up a child.
