Happy Birthday to youuuuuu … Yun Zi!
The San Diego Zoo’s youngest giant panda, who’s now a big boy at 2 years old, celebrated his big birthday on Friday with fans – and an ice cake.
The three-tiered confection featured yams, carrots and apples (Yun Zi’s favorite fruits and vegetables), and was decorated with bamboo leaf bows and a bright blue topper. The elaborate treat took three weeks to make!
Yun Zi didn’t keep the pretty bows on his cake for very long, though. He quickly decided to shove it over on its side – faster to get to the really yummy bits!
