Anthony D Herrera • AV Club Sep 13, 2021

"The show is a captivating all-filler-no-thriller oddity that will have listeners contemplating Bernie Sanders’ ancientness and gasping as they realize that, yes, Pink is that old. The fact that the show’s very concept will have the audience pondering their own age and mortality makes it perfect for those who love their fluff served with a hint of existential dread."

Miranda Sawyer • The Guardian Sep 4, 2021

"To be fair, the Radio 4 6.30pm “funny” slot has long been a tricky one to conquer, and several excellent comedians and writers have wilted in its glare. There’s not much room for biting repartee when all they have to play with is a celebrity’s age or whether they actually know who’s being discussed. The Birthday Cake Game seems like a daft, Ken Bruce-style feature given 20 minutes too long."
