This sheet cake with the Zoological Society’s 100th anniversary logo was one of the cakes donated by bakeries participating in the cake-decorating contest. Visitors to the Zoo got free cake as they viewed 16 submitted contest cakes. Visitors also enjoyed free popcorn courtesy of Tri City National Bank, the event’s sponsor, and free hot chocolate and coffee thanks to Nestlé® and Alterra Coffee Roasters, in paper cups donated by Chinet®.
