Just in time for Halloween and conveniently available at your local Target store, this orange and chocolate marble cake with purple ready-to-use icing is easy to make and tastes great!
The Marble Cake Kwik Bake Kit comes with three packets:
- Orange Cake Mix
- Chocolate Cake Mix
- Ready-to-use Icing
All you need to make the cake is 1 cup of water or milk, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, and 2 large eggs.
This cake was perfect because it allowed both my eight year old and my three year old to have their own cake to mix, before the marbling.
Simply take two separate bowls, place the orange cake mix in one bowl and the chocolate cake mix in the other bowl. To each cake mix add water, vegetable oil, and an egg as directed on the package instructions. Marble and bake as directed on the package.
The box for this kit contains easy-to-follow instructions on the back, and includes a handy baking chart for the various sizes of pans you might use, including cupcakes, 8 inches, 9 inches, 13 inches by 9 inches (I used this size with excellent results) or even a bundt pan.
Once the cake is baked and cooled, frost with the purple ready-to-use icing that is included in the kit. We decorated the frosting on our marble cake with candies to add to the Halloween theme.
Overall, a good tasting cake and a good tasting frosting, buy two boxes because this will go quickly once prepared, and you wish you had more.
