Pop superstar Michael Jackson enjoyed a sweet touch to his 45th birthday celebrations on Saturday (30AUG03), when he was presented with a 2 metre (7 feet) tall cake.

Fans of the BAD singer arranged the bash, which took place at Los Angeles' Orpheum Theater the day after his actual 29 August birthday.

While BRIAN McKNIGHT sang HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Jackson, former GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash and R+B hunk Usher were guests at the CELEBRATION OF LOVE party, which was hosted by comedian Steve Harvey.

Festivities also included a line-up of Jackson impersonators, who the pop icon joined onstage to sing his hit song WE ARE THE WORLD.
