Must have been a bear-y good treat!

To mark his fourth birthday, caretakers at the Nanshan Zoo in Yantai, China presented giant panda Hua Ao with a delicious cold confection. The “ice cake,” crafted out of circle-shaped blocks of ice and frozen fruit, was brought to Hua Ao on a bed of leaves, much to his delight.

Over 400 admirers turned out to celebrate the adorable animal’s birthday, and some fans baked their own birthday cakes in honor of the occasion. Now that’s one popular panda!
