Cake will never be the same again.

A British food artist has recreated a life-sized Dexter Morgan in honor of Sunday's premiere of the final season of the serial killer series set in Miami.

According to the Miss Cakehead blog, it took Annabel de Vetten of Conjurer's Kitchen nearly 100 hours to bake the 5'10" tall cake -- the actual height of Michael C. Hall who plays Dexter.

It also took a staggering list of ingredients: 24 eggs, 120 blood oranges, 97 cups of flour, 126 cups of buttercream, 142 cups of sugar, and 157 cups of sugar paste and marzipan.

The hefty 200-pound cake was then sliced, diced and shipped off to media outlets in a press packet commissioned by Fox.
