ATLANTA -- Happy birthday, Mei Lun and Mei Huan!

Zoo Atlanta's famous panda twins turn 1 on July 15, and the zoo has planned a special celebration in their honor.

The pandas' caregivers crafted two ice cakes with banana pieces inside. The cakes are shaped like the number 1. Mei Lun and Mei Huan will enjoy the cakes at 10:45 a.m. Tuesday; fans are invited to visit the zoo or tune in to PandaCam to watch the twins receive their birthday treat.

At 2:30 p.m., Zoo Atlanta will host a Google+ Hangout, also on PandaCam, in the pandas' honor. The zoo's panda keepers will join the hangout to share memories of the twins' births and first year.

Mei Lun and Mei Huan are the fourth and fifth cubs for Lun Lun and Yang Yang. Their three older siblings -- Mei Lan, Xi Lan and Po -- now live at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in China. Watch the zoo say goodbye to the giant pandas.
