Thank you.



I buy the Oreo Jell-O Instant Pudding mix. I add enough hot water to a box of it to make a loose paste. I whip up to 2 cups of vanilla Bettercreme to the soft peaks stage and then take some of that and loosen up the pudding paste with it. I take that mixture, add it to the rest of the beaten Bettercreme, and beat on low until well incorporated--just 30 seconds or so.

Sometimes, I'll crush up extra Oreos and add them to the mix, or maybe just sprinkle them over the filling after spread it on the cake layer.

Weird, I've never heard of anyone -not- liking Marble Cake icon_confused.gif Marble is a family favorite. I've honestly not heard of anyone hating it until this thread!

It's fun trying different combos besides chocolate/vanilla. I've done chocolate/strawberry (which looks COOL) vanilla/strawberry, strawberry/lemon, and white/red velvet, although I confess the white/red velvet experiment was not entirely sucessful.

I also have made marble cupcakes icon_biggrin.gif It can be done, it just takes an insanely long time to do them proper.

Marble cake with oreo filling sounds dangerously good. I'll have to try it!

Marble cake is my #1 requested flavor! I don't like making it either and would just want one flavor or the other. However, it's their cake and I'll do whatever they want; I'm just surprised how popular it is! Why can't someone ever order lemon! icon_twisted.gif

I'll trade you! Lemon cake is my most requested flavor and I'm starting to get sick of making it! icon_lol.gif

Hard way to do it. icon_eek.gif

Easy way to do it: icon_wink.gif

Just make a full recipe of vanilla, take out 1/4 to 1/3 of the batter, depending on how much chocolate you want, and add some cocoa powder to it until you like the taste & color.

Place dollops of the chocolate batter on top of the vanilla batter in the pan and drag a dinner knife thru the dollops in a swirling pattern.

Because the base is vanilla batter, it all bakes up evenly.

I love marble cake--great with oreo mousse filling.....

Wow. Had never thought of doing it that way....fabulous idea. I'll have to try it. icon_wink.gif

I like marble, and the reason is because sometimes i don't want a strong flavor of chocolate and the yellow/or white is kind of boring. By mixing the two you take down the flavor of the chocolate a little so its not to rich.
Oh that lemon and strawberry marble sounds amazing.

This is how I make all my orders for "Marble".

As for marbling a cuppie, I pour in a little white, then a little chocolate, then more white batter. It is a layered look but is still some of each in every bite

That sounds super easy to make icon_smile.gif Can I...or have you...tried melting some chocolate to the batter instead of adding cocoa powder to it?? Just a thought icon_confused.gif

You know, I've melted chocolate and swirled it into a chocolate cake - so I bet it would work with white/vanilla - but the chocolate/brown swirls may not be as pronounced because there would be less of it (by volume) than using the chocolate batter - but would be delicious I bet!

I marble cupcakes all the time.......I use a tsp and just plop one flavor then the other, then back to the first one until I've got a couple layers in there. No need to swirl!


I get a lot of requests for "marble cake" however, not the white/chocolate variations. I do a lot of strawberry and lemon cake, white choc. raspb. and chocolate cake (my fav.), white caramel cake and chocolate cake (one of my fav.) also, lemon and orange cake (which seemed odd, but to each his own)

Thanks for posting this thread! I just had the same thoughts about the current TT cake I am doing, never understood the marble, but she want two of the three tiers in marble.........I guess it's like anythign else, a matter of preference. I personally don't like marble, and it is a PITA to make, but it's their cake not mine. Now whomever mentioned lemon......MMMmmm my favortie- and the strawberry/lemon marble sounds delish! icon_lol.gif

You could just put a drop or two of Hershey syrup and take a toothpick and swirl it. There u go marble syrup.
