What can I do to prevent my cake mix from overflowing?

First, before preheating your oven, make sure that your oven racks are straight. Then, most importantly, don't overfill your baking pan. We recommend that the pan be filled between 1/2 and 2/3 full. For specific batter amounts for certain pan sizes, check out our baking and serving guide.
