On October 11, the Intrepid Museum unveiled a mouthwatering new exhibition, Navy Cakes: A Slice of History.

The Museum's collection inspired this exhibition. While cataloging our photographs and slides, our collections team observed that the crew of Intrepid seemed to eat a lot of cake. Some of these desserts were small and simple, while others featured extravagant designs and fed the entire crew of 3,000 people.

Navy Cakes: A Slice fo History

From this inspiration, we set out to tell the story of cakes and baking on board both of the Museum’s vessels, the aircraft carrier Intrepid and the submarine Growler. Navy Cakes highlights the hard work of the commissarymen who had the job of creating these elaborate desserts under challenging conditions. In the exhibition, you’ll hear some of these men describing their experiences as Navy bakers.

Navy Cake Recipe

Discover U.S. Navy cake recipes, baking equipment, video footage, photographs and other artifacts from our collection. The exhibition design features many delectable details, including a full-scale replica of an Intrepid anniversary cake from 1968. You can step into the role of Intrepid's commanding officer, who cut the first slice of this epic confection.
