FOX commissioned a campaign for ‘Dexter’ from creative agency Cakehead Loves (of Resident Evil butcher shop fame) to celebrate the show’s last season, which starts airing this Sunday. So Cakehead Loves got together with Annabel of the Conjurer’s Kitchen (and realistic chocolate baby heads fame) to make this lifelike Dexter Morgan cake. I’d take a stab at it.
Inspired by the name of Dexter’s boat – A Slice of Life – the cake was 5ft 10″ long, the same height as Michael C. Hall, the actor who has played Dexter for the past eight years. The entire cake took over 100 hours to make and weighed over 105 kilograms. 24 eggs, 25 kilograms of flour, 16 kilograms of buttercream, 18 kilograms of sugar, 20 kilograms of sugar paste and marzipan, and 15 kilograms of buttercream were used in the creation of the edible masterpiece. 20 blood oranges were also used, the cake flavor inspired by the iconic titles of the series.
Did you excite by the last season? Honestly, I had to stop watching after the season with John Lithgow in it because I’m really impressionable and I felt like the show was MAKING me a serial killer!
