It was only a matter of time, as our friends at Cake Wrecks pointed out, before the Michael Jackson cake tributes would start to roll in at neighborhood grocery stores. But it is the great state of Iowa that surprised us this week with the announcement that the State Fair would honor the King of Pop with a tribute in butter.
That's right, a Michael Jackson butter carving will sit in the 40-degree-F comfort of a cooler from Aug. 13-23, the Des Moines Register reports. Lori Chappell, the fair's marketing director, told the paper "we're just trying to pay tribute to his contribution to music and dance ... as opposed to giving any scrutiny of his life."
Have you seen any MJ tributes?
