‘Nibble’ Pan Lets You Sample Cake Without Ruining The Whole Thing


As a huge fan of baking, I empathize with those who can’t keep their hands off a freshly-made cake. It’s a serious issue because a) it’s near impossible to stop chompin’ and b) the cake becomes ruined with random snack holes. Luckily, inventor Talia Wiener has solved our first world problem and created Nibble.



Although Nibble looks like a standard cake pan, it’s far from it. Notice the small silicone cup attached to the side? That is where things get fun. The cupcake-like addition is the perfect amount of sweet for bakers to taste test desserts without botching the entire thing.

This invention also confirms bakeware can be considered adorable. Aww, Nibble!

Except- that small amount will likely cook faster than the rest of the pan, making it dry and not nibble worthy if you leave it in for the full time.

Or maybe the inventor accounted for that and that is why the sample is in a silicon cup raised off the rack. Unless you have tried it nobody cares about your guesswork.

I bake regularly, so it’s really not guesswork anymore than your own guess about what the inventor did or did not do. To eliminate any question about whether or not it would be dry, perhaps everyone (the numerous blogs) promoting this pan should actually bake in it first and then tell us the results, as opposed to just using stock images and the PR blurb about the pan.
