The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Holiday Sugar Sculpture is on view in front of the downstairs cafeteria through January 6. The sweet, fully edible piece — except for the miniature bus and cab — was made seven years ago by executive pastry chef Randy Eastman and 6 assistants from the French Culinary Institute, using 60 pounds of rolled fondant and 30 pounds of gum paste over the course of 128 hours. Other seasonal displays at the Met Fifth Avenue include the Christmas Tree and Neapolitan Baroque Crèche, the Eastern European Silver Menorah, and a sculpture of Amsterdam outside the dining room.
