Delicious Dexter: UK Celebrates New Season With Life-Size Cake
The season eight premiere of Dexter aired on Showtime on June 30 over here in the states, but in the UK, its airing date is set for Sunday, July 7, on FOX. The beginning of the end is certainly a cause for celebration, and there's no better way to celebrate than with cake.

Cakes are always great. But cakes shaped to look like celebrities' faces are even greater. And a life-sized cake of Dexter Morgan is the greatest.
FOX commissioned food artist Annabel de Vetten of Conjurer's Kitchen in Birmingham, UK (via Miss Cakehead) to create an edible delight fit for the occasion. It's only fitting that after seven seasons, Dexter, who chops his victims into pieces, is now the one being sliced...and eaten!
Inspired by the name of Dex's boat, de Vetten wanted to literally create a slice of Dexter's life.
The delectable-looking cake is so realistic you might even need to do a double-take to make sure it's not Michael C. Hall on the table. The cake measured 5 feet, 10 inches long, which is the same height as Hall, and it was even fully clothed with a black shirt and black pants. (We'd have rather seen Dexter dressed in his usual kill outfit -- olive green thermal and army green cargo pants -- but whatever.)
