I have someone who is wanting a marble cake. This is really dumb but, is marble cake just a swirl of yellow and chocolate cake? Can I just make my yellow batter, make my chocolate batter, and swirl them together in the pan? Is there a certain way to do it? Seriously, with me its the simple things that baffle me. Thanks for any info!

yes...just swirl

yes....make enough yellow and divide. Add cocoa to one part

how to: NOT with your finger --- knife? fork? spoon? (take your pick)

and if amazingly coordinated and talented -- pour both batters at same time swirling as you pour.

NOT with my finger? Damn.

So I can just add cocoa to part of the yellow batter? I don't have to make a separate chocolate batter?

Do I just pour some chocolate batter on top of the yellow and swirl?

finger may be used to clean mixing bowls.

yes, yellow batter and then add cocoa to part.

on top and swirl -- yep

or any ol' way you care to mix them together -- thou shall not use the Lucy Grape Stomping method however.
