I am making a bithday cake for an 8 year old little boy. He wants choc and white cake marbled. I think I have an idea of how to do it but Im not positive. How do you put them together without them blending? I would think you would put them in the pan and then use something to swirl them a bit. If that is correct do you put one cake mix in and the next one on top of that one or do you put them next to each other and then swirl them? I'm sure somebody knows any advise would be great. Thank you.

I normally put scoops of the two different batters next to each other and then use a toothpick or knife to mix them through a little bit only so they aren't completely blended and I do it by layers. So if it's a loaf pan I'd go

White / Chocolate
Then after swirling these I'd put another layer on top

Hope that makes sense. Let me know if it doesn't.

Thank you that really cleared things up for me. I will be doing that in a 12x18 sheet pan and the loaf pan.
