, 11:26 AM IST

British baker Sonia Todd, has created a life size cake of Michael Jackson. Todd, who’s behind the epic creation, spent 150 hours crafting it to raise money for St Michael’s Hospice in Harrogate, UK. Todd’s cake also won a bronze medal at Birmingham’s Cake International competition. Todd said, “I love Michael Jackson and love cake decorating so I thought that I would enter his shoes, hat and glove… then I thought I’d rather do his head and shoulders and then I thought ‘ this is Michael Jackson the king of pop’ — he was a showman — so I made him life size: all 5ft 9 inches of him. With size 9 shoes.”

Todd said that she’s made the Michael Jackson cake twice now. “The first attempt was cake (Man in the Madeira). But if you have seen pictures all that gold armour would not hold onto the cake so I took to YouTube and Google and then rebuilt him from rice crispy treat mix (King of Snap, Crackle and Pop).”
