cake baking options

-If I want to make a cake that wouldn't be frosted on the sides, how would I keep them from browning? Line the pan with foil or parchment?

-You know those metallic-fabric strips that you put around the top of a baking pan to make the cake bake flat and even? What sort of fabric and other items are needed to make those? Are there other techniques for a flat cake top (besides cutting it; the layers of my cake will be thin enough as it is without having to slice them up)?

-What is your experience with silicone bakeware? I saw silicone cake pans the other day and they seemed like a nice, flexible, nonstick concept. How do they do in terms of browning and even-top baking as described above?
