Inspired by the name of Dexter’s boat – A Slice of Life – the cake was 5′ 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 flavour inspired by the iconic titles of the series.
They even created a “kill room” covered in plastic and started off the slicing with Dexter’s trademark move of plunging a knife into the chest. This was all part of a PR stunt to promote the final season, and once the cake was sliced up it was packaged in little blood-spattered boxes and sent to members of the press along with a funeral announcement.
