Did anyone do 2 seperate batters and mix it in the same pan to get a marble effect ?
e.g. red velvet and vanilla.

yes, that's how i do ALL of my marble cakes, even with white and chocolate. So far my two favorites are white and strawberry or chocolate and strawberry.

Yes, that's how you make marble.

My fav - vanilla and orange.

I usually make my yellow cake batter (vanilla) and then reserve 1/3 of the batter and add chocolate or cocoa (as recipe directs). I pour the yellow batter into the pans and then add the chocolate batter, swirls a knife through the batters to "marbelize". Bake as directed.

I have also seen a method that reserves 1/3 of the batter to add the chocolate/cocoa. Then the batter is added to the pan by first a thin layer of the yellow to cover the bottom of the pan. Then a thin layer of the chocolate to cover to within about 3/4 inch of the sides of the pan, then another layer of the yellow to about 1/2 inch of the edge of the chocolate...and so forth, alternating the batters in ever smaller circles. Do not mix or drag a knife through the batter once in the pan. Bake as directed. The resulting cake will have a zebra stripe effect when you cut it. It's a wonderful look.

This is exactly how I do it too. But this one will be mixed with a butter batter and oil batter.

Do you think this will make a difference? It might help to keep the batters from mixing, which would be all to the good in a marble cake, but on the other hand, it might make no difference at all.
