Annabel de Vetten of Conjurer’s Kitchen created a life-sized, hyper-realistic Dexter cake to celebrate the premiere of the show’s final season. The 5-foot 10-inch long cake — exactly the same height as Dexter Morgan actor Michael C. Hall — weighed over 200 pounds and took more than 100 hours to make. The cake was named “A Slice of Life” after Dexter’s boat, and was flavored with blood orange after the show’s opening credits.
A Dexter ‘kill room’ was created for the cutting of the cake, the kitchen walls covered in plastic sheeting. Replicating Dexter’s kill technique, the cake was initially cut by a knife being plunged into the chest area before being sliced up. The cake was also ‘dressed’ in clothes to give an authentic appearance, with hours spent on adding fine attention to detail such as stubble.
