The Associated Press reports that on July 9th, panda bear Tai Shan celebrated his 4th birthday at the National Zoo in Washington. And his people friends made him a birthday cake! Its made out of ice, beet juice and shredded beets, bamboo, and apples. Awww! Happy Birthday, Tai Shan!

(and no, we at Short Street Cakes do not make cakes for panda bears, in case you were thinking about trying to order one of these from the cake shop)
Thanks to Blue Ridge Biofuels for passing this along!
