About the Exhibit

At the opposite end of the spectrum from the Kamikaze installation, this charming exhibit explores the long naval tradition of baking cakes on board. What may sound simple is here shown to be a complex logistical feat: combining hundreds of pounds of ingredients in limited space aboard a moving vessel in order to feed an entire crew. Possibly the only current exhibit in New York that provides recipes.
