Michael Jackson - $110
Phew, what a week it's been. This was the first cake required this week. It is, if you can't recognise him, a Michael Jackson cake. We had a few problems with him, but hey, it's all a learning curve. First of all I made a fairly good MJ and had him standing up while I made a few other bits, and all of a sudden he just broke in half. Back to the drawing board. This time I made him with a nice strong skewer down his back and he worked perfectly. I am really pleased with this one. The cake was a slab cake but I indented the top to look like boards and then painted them to give the effect of him being on stage. The candles I cut down and placed in stars trying to convey the impression of stage lights.
