I have to make several marble cakes. The store was out so I purchased white cake mix and a chocolate cake mix to marble. Is marble cake a white cake or yellow cake? If it's yellow would white work? The cakes will be covered in fondant. It's been a long time since I had a request for a marble cake. Thank you.

I've always used white and chocolate cakes to marble.

In my world, marble cake is any two flavors swirled together. I've had customers choose banana and strawberry, chocolate raspberry and almond white, and then Dreamsicle which is orange and white cake swirled.

Im with Leah. You can swirl anything together that your would like. I do think i reg Marble box mix is yellow cake but i dont think its really going to matter. The grocery store stuff (ate on last week at a kids bday party) was def. white and choc.

I agree you could marble any 2 mixes. I love the strawberry/banana idea! I might have to give that one a go!

I like to marble chocolate and strawberry. The chocolate offsets the sweetness of the strawberry.... and it's pretty!

I've never tried it with a white cake...white cake always seems a bit on the dry side to me...I use French Vanilla and chocolate. It's not super white, but it's lighter than yellow cake.
