I've marbled chocolate and yellow wasc cakes before w/ excellent results. I'd pour in half the amount of chocolate and dollop on the yellow batter and use a spoon or knife to "marble it". It looked awesome and tasted great. Hope that helps. =)

I just use my chocolate and vanilla recipes (which are different from each other) and marble them together. I usually add the vanilla and plop chocolate in places and run a knife through it. I don't make marble cake often as I prefer to layer chocolate and vanilla cakes in the tier, but it works well. =]

I just use my regular butter cake recipe and remove about 1/3 of the batter and add some cocoa powder to it, and then marble it using the techniques mentioned above. Some people add melted chocolate chips to a portion of their batter, but I have not tried that yet.

thanks so much for the replies!

I think I'll stick to my vanilla cake recipe and and cocoa.

I haven't tried WASC.... is it that good? I have been using the Vanilla cake recipe from Confetti cakes...
