Here is how to make the ideal *mathematical* cannoli:

- Take a unit circle made of thin dough.
- Wrap it around a cylinder of radius \(\frac{1}{\pi}\) so the ends just touch.
- Bake until crisp and then fill with delicious cream.
- Scrape off the excess filling using a straight edge held perpendicular to the long axis and touching symmetric points of the edges as you scrape.

**What is the volume of the filling in the cannoli?**

**Note:** Top, front, and side views of the cannoli are shown. Since the excess filling has been scraped away, no filling is visible in the side view. Bon appétit!
