Answer

(Fatwa: 670/478/L=1432)

Celebrating birthday is not proved from Shariah. It is the custom of the Jews and Christians, so Muslims should avoid it.
قال عليه السلام :من تشبه بقومٍ فهو منهم .
One should avoid participating in the custom of birthday, but the food prepared in it cannot be termed as haram.
