A friend of mine is a Dexter super fan. So, when his birthday came up, I decided to make him a Dexter-themed cake.
This is an easy one to replicate. All you need is a batch of white icing, a batch of chocolate icing, corn syrup tinted with red food coloring, and a box of cake mix – any flavor will work, but red velvet would be the obvious choice for upping the gore factor.
Prepare and cool the cake according to package directions. Cover cake stand or platter with saran wrap and frost with white icing. Then decorate with chocolate icing, starting with the face. Once you’re happy with your design, channel your inner serial killer and fling the corn syrup at the cake to create edible blood spatter.
