"If you pour your cake batter so that it comes up to the sides and corners of the pan, leaving a small depression in the center, the cake will be perfectly flat on top when baked."

Does that then mean you get to eat the extra frosting directly from the bowl since, now, there's no place for it to go?

Sounds like great YUM-fun to me!

And all this time we've been cutting the top before icing the cake! I'll suggest this next time ;-)

I have just been turning them upside down and frosting the bottom it's always flat and of course extra frosting :)
