It's James and Amber's birthday, and since they are twins, it's a Double Birthday for them. Sofia wishes Amber a Happy Birthday and escorts her to the dining room where she has prepared some goldenberry pancakes with cinnimon whipped cream for the twins only to find that James has eaten them all, much to Amber's annoyance. She admits to Sofia that she is not happy sharing her Birthday with her brother like she used to be and wishes she could have a Birthday all to herself. Suddenly, thanks to a stray comment from Sofia, she comes up with an idea on how to get what she wants and leaves the table without finishing her pancakes. Meanwhile, Cedric is preparing his magic show for the twins' birthday party which he doesn't want to do. Just then, Amber comes in and asks him to cast a spell that will give James a different birthday and in return Cedric will never have to do another birthday magic show again. They find the spell for the job, but the spell goes wrong thanks to Cedric's allergies to pollen. Instead of making James two months younger than Amber, Cedric accidentally turns him into a two month old baby. Cedric and Amber both know if they don't change him back, they will be in serious trouble. Just when Cedric is about to find the counter spell, he drops his spell book and James' dog Rex steals it to hide. While Sofia sends Clover to help Cedric find Rex and the spell book, Amber decides to make do with a birthday all to herself but Sofia insists that they keep an eye on James until Cedric can change him back.
In the castle, James is having a lot of fun messing around and nearly breaking things. While Sofia tries to keep him under control, Amber is more busy picking games for “her” birthday party. James even finds his old favourite toy; a kazoo that he used to blow in Amber's face many times which made her hide it away from him. Sadly, he breaks it and starts to cry but Amber manages to calm him down. After he calms down, James starts to run off around the castle with Amber and Sofia in pursuit. They soon catch him and then go to the kitchen to pick the birthday cake. Amber chooses the strawberry one but James wants the chocolate one and begins to stuff his face, getting all messy with chocolate. Amber laughs, remembering how James has kept up the habit of messy eating.
Meanwhile, Cedric tries using a crystal ball to find his spell book. Clover, Mia and Robin try to trick Rex into digging up the spell book but he turns out not to be an easy dog to fool and runs off back to the castle to get a snack. For the moment it all seems hopeless but luckily Robin comes up with a plan. They give Rex a bone and when he does he'll go off and bury it leading them to where he buried the book. Amber and Sofia are trying to clean up James but it soon turns into a playful water fight between the twins. Rex takes the bait and goes off to bury the bone where he buried the spell book. Clover, Mia and Robin follow him and manage to get it back for Cedric who takes the credit for himself.
Sofia and Amber take James to Amber's room where they find a present on her bed, from James. It turns out to be a golden locket with a picture of Amber and James inside. Cedric soon shows up with the spell book and just before he could cast the counter spell they discover James has disappeared. The three of them start searching the castle for him but it turns out to be hopeless. Amber manages to get James to come out of hiding by singing their royal twin song, which they use to sing when they were little. Cedric finds the counter spell and changes James back to his original age (with no memory of the experience) just in time for the twins' birthday party. At the party, Amber gives James his Kazoo and their parents give a bicycle for James and a unicorn for Amber. James and Amber decide to share their gifts and begin to happily chase each other around the castle grounds.
