Malik turned 28-years-old on Tuesday and model girlfriend Gigi Hadid shared pictures of the occasion to Instagram.
Among the gifts were a homage to City, who the former One Direction man has supported since he was a young boy.
The cake was made by Carlo's Bakery and alongside it is a ticket that reads: ""Happy 28th birthday Z! Love G."

The League Two outfit got in on the celebrations and wished Malik a happy birthday on Twitter, writing: "A belated happy birthday to @zaynmalik...' We hope your day was as special as your cake!"
In a fine attention to detail, the shirt on display seems to be from the 2014/2015 season.
That season saw City reach the FA Cup quarter-finals, with a legendary 4-2 win over Chelsea in the fourth round being the standout result.
Football fans have reacted to the images and they think it's already taken the crown for weirdest crossover of 2021.

Love the idea of a reality TV baker in New York making this.

Malik has owned a box at Valley Parade since 2016 and it is named after his grandfather, Walter Brannan.
It is primarily used for children who cannot attend games by normal means and a source told the Mirror per Metro: "Zayn wanted to give something back to his local community."
