Before this pair of 8-year-old giant pandas left their reserve in China to travel to a Scottish zoo, they took a minute to stuff their faces with some delicious looking cake, Reuters reported.

Yang Guang, or "Sunshine" in English, will make the journey with his female buddy "Tian Tian" aka "Sweetie," as well as their trainer, who's worked with them since they were cubs.

Yang Guang isn't the only giant panda out there with a craving for cake. Back in August, the San Diego Zoo's Yun Zi celebrated his second birthday by demolishing a large, multi-colored cake. Don't worry though, the cake was specially made out of ice and the panda's favorite vegetables.

The San Diego Zoo is "one of only four zoos in the United States which house and displays giant pandas and is the most successful program with regards to panda reproduction," according to SanDiego.com.

Despite efforts to increases their numbers, giant pandas remain extremely endangered. According to a report by the Telegraph, there are less than 2,500 giant pandas left in the wild and their natural habitat has shrunk by 50 percent in the last 20 years because of new economic development in China.
