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.
