I think that picture of Agatha and cake with candles is a celebration of The Mousetrap's birthday, not Agatha's. Maybe the 10 year anniversary? Now it's in its 67th year -- or it will be when London's West End opens up again.

It makes sense that she'd be celebrating something other than her birthday - I didn't try to count the candles but I think you're right about the cake being part of a Mousetrap celebration.

This is actually the 68th year Mousetrap has been in production, but it came to a standstill several months ago because of coronavirus. So whenever all this ends, I assume they'll go back to 68 again, since the production has been frozen in place for months now. What a strange year!

I guess I'm a little late for the party. Seems like yesterday was the 4th of July!
