How can I test my cake for doneness?

Cake testing

Baking advice: If you need to test your cake for doneness, use this great cooking tip! If you're out of toothpicks, just use an uncooked piece of spaghetti to test your cake. When a butter cake is done, it will shrink from the edges of the pan and be springy to the touch. Also remember to use top quality bakeware for best results.

Using a piece of spaghetti is a new one on me. Will try it soon. If it works, it will be much easier than using a short toothpick. Thanks!
