A thousand or so crab cakes, taken from the colossal cake, should be ready to serve at lunchtime to fair-goers, who will have something to tell their grandchildren about.
The Handy staff has done this before. Using a 3-foot diameter, 7 1/2-inch deep, 210-pound stainless-steel cooker, with built-in thermometers, designed by Handy's Regional Sales Manager Jim Cupp, Handy whipped up the current Guinness World Record crab cake -- a 253 pound named June Star.
OK, the crab cake didn't have a name.
The family-owned Handy International was founded in Crisfield in 1903.
The Maryland State Fair opens on Aug. 24 and runs through Sept. 3.
