Before adding the lemon flavors, I take about 1 1/2 cups of the batter for the raspberry swirl and add some pureed and deseeded raspberries, a little raspberry flavoring and a tiny bit of pink food color. It works with a scratch recipe or a cake mix.

My raspberry buttercream is just my regular ABC with the liquid replaced with pureed, deseeded raspberries, raspberry flavor, and a tiny bit of pink food color.

It looks really pretty when it's cut, especially when torted because the frosting matches the swirl in the cake.



Thank you for this Elcee. Like I said, I've never made a marble cake. I am making the vanilla/chocolate combination. If you had to guess, is there a ratio I should be aiming for?

I wasn't sure if a marble cake was 50/50 (50 lemon/50 raspberry in your case).

Hmm. My strawberry marble cake is somewhere in the neighborhood of at least 60% main batter, and no more than 40% contrast batter. But I've never actually measured it.

Well I'm making my first cake this weekend so I'll have to test out ratios. Thank you!

I would guess more like 70/30. I put my main batter in the pan first and then drop in large dollops of the swirl flavored batter on top and then swirl it through.
