Halloween Marble Cupcakes

These cupcakes were made for a Halloween potluck my bff was having at work. I decided to do a vanilla chocolate "marble" cupcake which would allow me to do both orange and black cake.

I started with a box mix and then separated it in two, one half I made orange and the other black.

I added cocoa powered and black americolor gel in order to get a strong black color and not a grey.

The vanilla I just turned into orange with a little orange americolor gel. 

I started by placing a small scoop or orange cake in the pans.

Then I added some chocolate.

And topped them off with more orange.

They baked up to be a nice orange and black color!

I decided to go with a strong orange colored vanilla buttercream and black pearls.

Try them out and let me know what you think! 

I look from the inside.
