How can I share office birthday treats without seeming like a pompous six year-old?

How do I let people know there are birthday treats for me, from me, in the office kitchens without sounding like OMG ITS MY BIRFDAY PAY ME SOME ATTENTIONS?
I work at a company which has about 50 employees but three office sites. I know almost every employee by name and have worked with many for a long time. I would like to buy birthday treats for each office just to share some fun. My HR person said this was totally OK. I often bake and share stuff which people seem to love. This time I think I will buy ice cream bars from a local café for people to take (or not) at their leisure.
I do mental health work and I swear this is not an attention-getting ploy as we have already had my departmental "March Birthday" celebration, plus more with my friends. I just like excuses for cake/candy/ice cream for everyone. Thanks MeFi.
