Good news, Dexter fans: There’s now a cupcake dedicated to your favorite serial killer. New York City’s Magnolia Bakery — which rose to fame in the late 1990s as a favorite haunt of Sex and the City’s Carrie  — has partnered with Showtime to release this $4 treat, available now at branches in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. As the bakery’s blog explains, the special red velvet cupcake features “blood” (made from caramel) and “glass” (made from sugar.) Sounds kind of gross — but also kind of tasty, right?
