I tried to age up my child sim into a teen but when I had her blow out the candles she didn't age up. I tried it again and it didn't work. I then tried all of the other ways to age up with birthday candles, but none of these worked. I removed all of my mods and attempted to age her up again but the same thing happened.

Sims still won’t age up with a cake

Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I have been having to cheat the Sims aging up since last summer now and it’s getting annoying. I have baked every type of cake possible. Changed counters. Deleted items to give them space. Tried with every age. Nothing, for over a year. Now when I take them into CAS to change their age the game doesn’t recognise the change. It won’t give them homework. It won’t make them a mermaid/vampire etc when they become teens. It doesn’t reset the aging bar. For example if I age them from child to teen with 3 days left, when they become teens they only have 3 days until they become adults.

Aging-up doesn't work with all cakes

★★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? Norsk
How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
What is your current game version number? 1.75.125.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All packs, except for the new Courtyard Oasis-kit.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Try to age up a teen using a cake with birthday candles.
What happens when the bug occurs? I attempted to age up the teenage sim by blowing out the candles on the cake. At first, I had a black and white cake (black with white decor), and tried to make a wish. The candles got blown out, the action got marked as complete in the birthday event, and the relevant moodlets got added to the sims. But the sim did not age up. I tried again with a new cake (as the previous cake got eaten). This time I tried with a honey cake. I tested all the different options for aging up a sim with the cake, (kept replacing the candles after each try). And still nothing happened - except for added moodlets. I then tried to change the game settings, as I normally play with aging off. Switched it to on, and tried aging up again. > Same issue. I attempted to travel away from the lot and back again > same issue Opened and closed CAS, which tends to fix many bugs > same issue I switched aging back off and tried a third cake - the standard white cream cake. Added candles and blew them out. This time the sim aged up, and also got teleported to the other side of the wall in the process.
What do you expect to see? I expect the sim to age up when using the age up options on all cakes that can have birthday candles.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

The attached screenshots show the different cakes tested. Only the white cake worked out of the three.

The second picture is in reference to the location of the cake when the candles was blown out, and where the sim got teleported to.
