Check their inventory, it's in there.

@DrippySojo45 Gave this a quick test and it works fine for me.

Could you try deleting the localthumcache file + repairing the game.

THIS is happening to me! Exact same. And no, it DOES NOT appear in my Sims inventory. It just completely disappears. I had to use cheats to age up my sim at her brithday party, which was lame. I took out all my mods and tried again, same thing. I'm completely up-to-date and and have everything except Batuu, Paranormal, and a few kits.

@Bestof4th Did you try deleting the cache files and repairing the game as well ?

Yes. I've done both. Actually, I always delete my thumbnail at the end of every gameplay. But I have also repaired my game twice since the new update and also created a Folder Refresh due to an annoying bug with an old save.

Can confirm. This is happening in my game too. Same exact thing. I can't get them to add birthday candles because if I try to drag it, it disappears. If i have them put it in their inventory and then I try to drag it, it just snaps right back into the inventory. If I try to move it in build mode, it disappears. This is definitely a bug.

 

Edit: It doesn't seem to happen with the hamburger cake. I haven't tried a white cake yet, but it happens consistently with the chocolate.
