From the National Zoo:

“Mei Xiang is celebrating her sweet 16 today in style: with daughter Bao Bao by her side and a fruitsicle in her paws! Mei was born in 1998 at the China Research and Conservation Center for the Giant Panda in Wolong, Sichuan Province. She arrived at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo in 200. Both mother and daughter celebrated Mei’s day by playing, relaxing, and eating (lots) of bamboo. The Zoo’s Nutrition team even made a panda-friendly cake for the occasion!”
