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!
