I want to make this cake so I can use it for a cake I want to carve, but I want to marble it. How would I go about doing this? I have on hand Baker's Unsweetend chocolate squares, Ghiradeli unsweetend cocoa powder and about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Can I use anyone of these to mix with the cake batter to get the chocolate part to marble this cake?

I take out a little bit of the batter and stir in 2-4 Tablespoons of cocoa powder depending on how much batter you have and how chocolatey you want it. I then pour a little bit of the white batter in the pan, put the chocolate batter in a large ziploc bag, cut off the end and put a few lines of it in the white batter. I then take a knife and run it through the chocolate to get a marbled effect. I then put more white batter on top so the pan is half full and repeat with the chocolate (marbling again).

Yes...make the cake as you normally would, then take some of the batter out and place in another bowl. Put the regular batter in the baking pans. Then add the chocolate (I would use cocoa) to the separated batter to make the chocolate. Then dollop the chocolate into the pans and swirl with a knife.

I use fiddlesticks method. Just dropping dollops in works fine. Take the broad side of your knife and run it through.

Yep what they said icon_smile.gif There should be no problem w/it.

Often I just used Unsweetened cocoa powder mixed w/some salad oil to a thick mud and use that instead of using batter. This make a very intense choco particon_smile.gif

I split the recipe in half and make one with white mix and one chocolate mix. Then dollop and run a knife through.

WOW! Thank you all for the feedback and more so for the quick response. I'm making this cake tomorrow but don't think I mentioned I needed guidance 'asap'. Anywhooo . . . I will take all your advice and use it well. I plan on submitting a cake for the contest on CC. My first time making WASC and first time carving a cake . . . I'm a bit nervous.

Kakeladi - I'm using the WASC recipe you posted on here as I hear all rave reviews about it. I'm looking forward to trying this.

Again, thank you all!
