Non-stick cake pan with tasting cup

Rather than cutting off a corner, why not cut off the top of the cake that is not level?

Any shaped cake pan would work, with 2 parts, clamped together while baking, the smaller part near the top of the cake. When cooled the clamps can be undone, the top part removed, and using a long bread knife, the rise on the top of the cake could be sliced off, thereby leveling the cake. And there's your sample! You get a better sample (corners tend to be the driest part of the cake, anyhow). When frosting a cake properly you don't want the sides or bottom compromised, because crumbs drag into the frosting. The leveled side of the cake is where the filling goes, between 2 layers, or it can be the bottom of the single layer cake. This would be a great tool to assist with leveling, which is normally done by just turning and slicing, and is not always perfect.

There are actually tools already on the market to level cakes: thin wire with adjustable height between 2 arms of the tool that lets you "saw" the top off to create a level surface.

I left you an answer to your question:

I could not message you directly since you are not following me.

I hope this answers your question about my idea for this round.

Yours,
