Zoo to unveil baby giraffe's name on humongous cookie cake

What better tribute to Atlanta’s tallest baby than with one of the city’s biggest cakes.

On Saturday, Zoo Atlanta will unveil the name of its newest giraffe on a cookie cake being created by Global Franchise Group, LLC and Great American Cookies. Employees will work from midnight to 7 a.m. Saturday to assemble the 16 feet by 10 feet confection, which can serve up to 2,000 guests.

More than 3,000 votes have been cast from a list of seven Swahili names: Anisa (grace), Hanna (happiness), Imara (strong), Kipenzi (precious one), Njozi (dream), Subira (patience has its rewards) and Zuri (gorgeous). Find out which name will be chosen at the naming celebration at 10 a.m. in the African Plains at Zoo Atlanta, 800 Cherokee Ave., Atlanta.

Admission to the zoo is $19.99 adults, $14.99 kids 3-11, and free for kids under 3.
