    Apart from the fact that it's a beginner's trick, it's also a boring one. Work on presentation as that's much more important than technique. If the trick is boring the audience don't so much ask 'how's it done?' as 'who cares?!'

    One example of a much stronger find the aces is setup 2 on top and 2 on bottom. Ask someone to cut about a quarter, and as you say that, slip cut (leaving top card on deck) a quarter and hold the cut pile. Hold out the balance of the deck for them to cut.

    Replace the pile you cut onto the deck and hold out deck for someone else to cut. Now the tops of both cut piles are aces.

    Shuffle the second bottom card to top (using overhand shuffle - you retain the bottom card, start shuffling, and shuffle off the last few ones singly). Hold out deck for third person to cut. 

    'I asked you all to cut a quarter, since there are 52 cards in the deck and 52/4=13, let's count the rest to see how many are left.' Deal the balance of the deck in a pile, thus having the bottom card end on top.

    'Ok, it seems we didn't all cut exact quarters, but at least we all knew where to cut...' display all 4 aces.

    Hope it's clear enough
