Dhoni, who turned 32 on Sunday stayed with the Indian team in West Indies despite being out of the ongoing ODI tri-series due to a hamstring injury.
After Sunday's celebrations, India's most successful skipper took to Twitter to give a glimpse of the party.
"Thanks everyone specially Bravo for the lovely evening and the soft cake all over my face and hair," Dhoni posted along with a picture of his face smeared with cake.
"All West Indian players and friends present were like no no u don't celebrate like tht, I said its just the beginning," Dhoni wrote.
The photograph of the cake, which had MSD 7 inscribed on it, was posted by Dhoni along with another tweet.
"Thts the cake.luks grt and tastes even better.face feels really soft now,v shd call it cake therapy," he wrote.
Dhoni began his career in 2004/05 against Bangladesh, which was a rather forgettable debut as he was dismissed for a duck.
However, his career graph has only headed northwards after that and he went on to emerge as one of the most revered sportspersons in the country.
The wicket-keeper batsman has played 77 Tests so far, scoring 4209 runs at an average of 39.70. Considered a game-changer in the ODI format, Dhoni has 7313 runs at an average of 51.13 in the 225 matches, he has played.
Under Dhoni, India won the Twenty20 World Championship in 2007, the ODI World Cup (2011) and the Champions Trophy (2013) and the Indian skipper is currently in the West Indies with the national team for an ODI tri-series.
