Google hits the tween years today, and celebrated with a new homepage “doodle.”

The cake illustration was made by painter Wayne Thiebaud; Mashable reports he is famous for his depictions of cakes and is a member of the Pop Art movement.

Google has been on a doodle spree recently, hinting at its Instant search with a bouncing-ball and color-changing Doodles, and celebrating The Wizard of Oz and artist Josef Frank.

So have a great birthday, Google! And once you’re done having a celebratory Google cake, check out an illustrated history of Google doodles.
