You could also invest in a baking core for larger cakes (10 inch or more). They draw the heat to the center of the pan. http://www.amazon.com/Wilton-Cake-He...589728?ie=UTF8

Here are the magi strips http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...lance&n=284507
I'd recommend those for even layers. "Cakes bake perfectly level and moist, without raised centres or cracked tops."
