To celebrate the final TV series of popular Dexter last Sunday on FOX, a full sized Dexter cake was created by food artist Annabel de Vetten was sliced up, wrapped in cling-film and sent to the media along with a funeral order of service for the last ever series of the critically acclaimed show. The cake was 5ft 10” long, the same height as actor Michael C. Hall. It took over 100 hours to make and weighed over 105 kg. 24 eggs, 25 kg of flour, 16 kg of butter cream, 18 kg of sugar, 20 kg of sugar paste and marzipan 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.
A Dexter ‘kill room’ was created for the cutting of the cake, the kitchen walls covered in plastic sheeting.
The cake was also ‘dressed’ in clothes to give an authentic appearance, with hours spent on adding fine attention to detail such as stubble.
Replicating Dexter’s kill technique, the cake was initially cut by a knife being plunged into the chest area before being sliced up.
