Two-toned cupcakes

My cousin Di and I were talking about two-toned cupcakes and we came across this product called Batter Babies. If you click the link you'll see that essentially it's a piece of plastic used to divide the two colours / flavours of cupcake batter.

I decided to make my own out of plastic from empty milk bottles.

I simply held one in an empty cupcake case ...

... and filled one side with chocolate batter and the other with vanilla:

Once I'd pulled the plastic out I realised that it probably wouldn't bake with a neat dividing line due to the different consistencies of the batters:

I went ahead and baked two as a test:

So, no perfect division of flavours but a fun twist on a cupcake anyway.

I'll try it in future with similar batters for a better result. In the meantime, these cupcakes got a "thumbs up" from Noah!

  5. Great idea for cupcakes! I make a similar cake and I have to add a tablespoon or two of extra flour to make the batters just a bit thicker so they don't mix in the pan. I don't think it changes the texture of the baked cake at all. It might be worth a try with your batter. Good luck experimenting.

  6. Those are so fun! There are so many different ways to mix this up too. And I love that it didn't cost you a penny! Saw this over at Amy's Notebook:) Have a great day!
