America's Favorite Serial Killer

Maria got me hooked on Dexter during the first season. I've been wanting to make a Dexter themed cake for awhile and I finally got the chance! My lady friend, Danielle, is also into Dexter and her birthday is tomorrow. Perfect opportunity to finally make this cake!

I covered a red velvet cake in white fondant. I really wanted it to be clean so I took my time. It's the best I've ever covered a cake! I'm super proud.

Then I made a fondant knife and put it on a lollipop stick.

I used red fondant and the Dexter font for her name.

Added "Happy Birthday" and some red "blood" splatter.

Here it is in all its gory glory:

This is by far my favorite cake. It turned out exactly how I wanted it to. I can't wait for Season 4 to start!
