Hey! I use the heat strips you buy from Hobby Lobby around my pans and it helps tremendously!! Then I normally just use a long knife and "shave" a little off the "hump" in the middle. Also on Food Network the other day Alton Brown showed where he uses some wooden stakes that are 2" thick and lays them on each side of the cake and that is the guide for his knife. Hope this helps!! Good Luck!!
