Whoooo’s a twenty-something for one last year? It’s bird lover Mark Salling!

The Glee star was surprised with an owl-shaped cake at Las Vegas’s Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub on Saturday, where he celebrated his 29th birthday. The cute confection, made by Gimme Some Sugar custom cakes, was the perfect birthday treat for the actor, who is a big supporter of owl conservation charities.

But he wasn’t the only one who got a slice: A group of the actor’s friends, including costar Cory Monteith, took over a cabana at the club and chowed down on the rainbow-funfetti-filled cake creature. Later, the party moved to TAO Asian bistro, where Salling was presented with a second cake shaped like a guitar.

The TV tough guy, whose actual birthday was Aug. 17, was appreciative of all the sweet birthday wishes. “So much birthday love,” he wrote on Twitter. “I’m overwhelmed and humbled. Thank you.”
