Eggless Marble Cupcake Recipe with step by step pictures.

With two more recipes needed to complete Bakeathon, I was looking for something easy yet something that would look good on the blog!I know it is too much to ask , yet I worked my grey cells to get something worthy to post.

I still don’t have a Zebra cake on the blog and thought that will be good one to make. Then comes the process of cutting and serving and the kids prefer cupcakes over such cut and serve type of cakes.

So the Zebra cake got converted into a marble cupcake!

I used the Basic Eggless Vanilla Cake recipe and made this one. You can use any vanilla cake recipe that you have been following so far.
