How to Make a Michael Jackson Glove Cake

Oh the Glove - That White Sequined Glove Michael Jackson loved to wear and only one of course. So why not make a White Glove Cake for the party?

There are many ways this can be done - The Glove Cake you see pictured to the right was made by cakes-a-nonymous and created using Rice Krispy Treats that were shaped into a Glove. Then she covered it with White Fondant and Modeling Chocolate - add some Silver Dragees and the Edible Glove was Born.

You can also Cut a Hand Shape using Baked Cake as well - Frost with Vanilla Frosting, Add your Silver Dragees to resemble Sequins.

If you are good with Fondant then bake any size cake Frost with any Color you chose and Cut out a Hand Shape from the Fondant to place on the top. Add your Silver Dragees and you have a different design.

You can even use the Hand Cookie Cutter and make some Micheal Jackson Glove Cookies and add then to the top of your Cake or even Cupcakes.

Edible Michael Jackson Cake and Cupcake Images

If you are not feeling so ambitious with the cake making there is never a shortage of Edible Michael Jackson Cake Images to chose from. These are simply placed right on the top of your Baked and Frosted Cake. You can find so many different photos available of Michael Jackson to use on top of your cake and some sellers will even personalize them for you as well.
