Tutorial Tuesday: Striped Cupcakes

A slight variation on the zebra cake. Since they’re so small, they might not be all that stripy, but could at least be considered a cool marble! Results may vary haha.

I started with a chocolate batter and a yellow batter. I used teaspoons. I think the secret here is super small layers. Keep building layers like with the cake. Don’t spread with the spoon and try to get each teaspoon in the center of the last.

Fill them about 3/4 of the way full and bake them according to regular baking directions.


BAM… striped cup cakes…

They’ll all look different, obviously, but some may end up more stripy than others! Happy nomming!
