All hail the life-sized Dexter cake!

DEXTER’S ‘dark passenger’ allows him to throw off the shackles of humdrum like in the ‘burbs and go around stabbing folk through the heart while they’re wrapped in clingfilm. Of course, he’s not real and we can’t hope to emulate him… until now!

Thanks to a life-sized cake replica of the TV serial killer, we can now stab Dexter Morgan! Then we can eat him like we’re Jeffrey Dahmer or something!

The cake was produced by food artist Annabel de Vetten and his 5′ 10″ long, the same height as actor Michael C Hall, and took a whopping 100 hours to make.

The cake marks the launch of Dexter’s final ever season (which is a crying shame as it really has been one of the best things ever broadcast on a television set).

The cake weighed 105kg, including 25kg of flour, 16kg of buttercream and 18kg of sugar.There were also 24 eggs, 20 blood oranges and 20kg of sugar paste and marzipan.

Emma Thomas, who was responsible for the concept of the creation, said: “The cake is so lifelike that cutting into it was a deeply unpleasant experience, and I did have to close my eyes. I have to admit, though, I wish we could have kept the cake whole as it’s always sad destroying a work of art. Although, I would have had no idea where I would have kept him!”
