Although I love my Chocolate Chip Marble Bundt Cake, I think that if you know how to marble a cake you can easily used boxed mixes and make a gorgeous cake.
How to Marble a Cake:
Drop your batter by the spoonful into your pan, alternating flavors. This cake is a thick batter, a different recipe might do more of an oozing kind of thing. That’s okay!
I recommend a chocolate and vanilla cake mix. In fact, drop some mini chocolate chips into the vanilla batter for extra fun! You’ll get 2 cakes out of them, about 36 cupcakes, or 3 9inch layers.
You don’t need them to be anything fancy or careful…just dollup them in.
Take a knife and run it through your cake only going across one way and only making a few runs. Do NOT be tempted to do more swirls or your cake will get muddy and lose its marbling effect.
Nobody likes muddy cake that doesn’t look like a proper marbled cake.
Clean your knife off and go back again the other way. Remember, don’t be tempted to go overboard on this.
Glorious, non-muddy marbled cake!
Think about doing this with a strawberry and vanilla flavor combo, pistachio and almond, or whatever you can dream up. So fun!
And of course, this technique works great with a boxed mix just as well as a homemade cake! In fact for our Princess Birthday Cake, we use boxed mixes and swirling to get the perfect Princess look.
That is all there is to it!
I KNOW…now you can take boxed cake mixes and look like a cake mixing super star!
