Smith Island, MD — Waterman Allen Marsh leaves his crab shanty after pulling up soft-shell crabs. Marsh sends his soft-shells daily by boat to the mainland, where the larger crabs are driven in a refrigerated truck to New York City.
In 2008, the Smith Island Cake became the official dessert of the state of Maryland. This decadent, buttery cake layered with fudge frosting is known to have been made with up to 15 layers (though this version has just 8 to 10).
