I used to take a piece of heavy duty aluminum foil and fold it into a piece the width of the pan and use it to separate the flavors while you pour them in. I would tilt the pan slightly when pouring in the one flavor and then tilt the other way when pouring in the other. Then you remove the foil don't bake with it in there). It's tricky but do-able. Good luck! If anyone has a better idea, I defer to them.

I also do like cakedesigner59 with the foil. But if you can get someone to hold the foil in place while you pour, it helps alot! It does have a tendancy to want to move with the batter.

unless you need a straight line you do not need anything to seperate

I just pour in the choc on one side because it is thicker and then the yellow on the other half

I have both ready to pour before I start.

You can't see if the line is perfectly straight once it is frosted and those that want a middle always want both flavors anyway

Pretty much word for word what I was going to say.

Also, regarding the concern about it "running together"..... I see this question all the time. It's not Kool-Aid. It's not going to run into each other and blend together. It's a thick batter ... like lava. The two batters will meet in the middle and STOP. The batter is thick enough to act as a barrier against the other batter ... it's not thin like Kool-Aid to enable it to run together like two liquids would.
