Are you using the wilton pans that have a slight flare to them? If so, invest in some good Magic Line pans (some also like the Fat Daddio pans, but I've only used Magic Line).

In the meantime, when I have to use my flared pans ..... freeze the cakes. While still frozen, stand them up on the side (like a wheel). Use a sharp paring knife and trim the flare off.

Do this a couple of times and you'll realize that buying new pans is worth it! icon_biggrin.gifthumbs_up.gif
