For those of you that don’t know me personally, I’ll fill you in on one of my passions… cupcakes. Specifically, mini-cupcakes (aka little cakes). I love making them about as much as I enjoy eating them. I recently made these marble cupcakes, which basically just consists of devil’s food cake and yellow cake, swirled. Since time was a factor, I “cheated” and used two cake mixes and two containers of frosting (one chocolate and one vanilla), instead of making them from scratch.


  • 1 box Betty Crocker Devil’s Food cake mix
  • 1 box Betty Crocker Yellow cake mix
  • 6 eggs
  • 2/3 cup oil
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1 container Betty Crocker Chocolate frosting
  • 1 container Betty Crocker Vanilla frosting


  1. Follow directions on cake mix, which includes oven temp and baking time.
  2. Cool cupcakes completely.
  3. Frost using a mix of chocolate and vanilla frosting. I used a decorator’s bag and tip to get a unique blend of the two frostings and the grooved design pictured above. Of course, you can simply use a knife and just use a little bit of both frostings.

My name is Denise and I love good food, but enjoy preparing it more. I spend a good portion of my free time searching recipes, experimenting in the kitchen and coming up with tasty creations. Some of my other favorite things are my pets, family, friends, traveling (especially to tropical destinations and Paris), the beach, music, movies, and shopping, to name just a few ;)
