In a mini food processor, pulse saltines until they look like the size of panko crumbs. You can also place crackers in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin to crumble them. Set to the side.
In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, egg, mustard, Worcestershire, cream, Tabasco and garlic powder. Whisk to incorporate all the ingredients.
In a medium size bowl, add the drained crab and the cracker crumbs. Mix gently. You don’t want your crab to turn to shreds. Add the mayonnaise mixer and the fresh parsley, very gently mix.
Form eight balls out of the crab mixture. Gently flatten to about a 1 inch thickness. Gently press in loose crab along the sides of your cake.
