We’ve made these Marble Cupcakes in a couple other color combinations (please don’t make us pick our favorite) and like the others these Autumn-themed Harvest Marble Cupcakes really pack a punch on a dessert table.  If you are looking to take cupcakes and chocolate frosting to the next level … this is the recipe for you!

How to Make Harvest Marble Cupcakes

You will need:

Separate Cake Mix for Harvest Marble Cupcakes

We split the cake batter into four equal portions.  We used a food scale to measure each portion but as you can see in these pictures it was approximately 1 cups of cake batter for each color. We made 20 cupcakes.

Color the Cake Mix

Using our Wilton Color Right Food Coloring we tinted the cake batter four different colors – Gold, Burnt Orange, Forest Green and Harvest Red. Here are the amounts of food coloring that we used to achieve these pretty Fall colors:

Gold = 4 drops of Wilton Color Right Yellow and 1 drop of Orange
Burnt Orange = 4 drop of Wilton Color Right Orange Food Coloring, 2 drops of Yellow, 1 drop of Red and 1/2 drop of Brown
Forest Green = 10 drops of Wilton Color Right Yellow Food Coloring, 1 drop of Blue and 1 drop of Brown
Harvest Red = 8 drops of Wilton Color Right Crimson Food Coloring

Create the Marble effect in the cupcakes

To make the marble effect we used a small spoon to alternate small drops of colored cake batter into the cupcake liner.  There is no wrong way to layer in the colored cake batter – have fun.

The inside of the cupcakes is the real wow factor!  No two Harvest Marble Cupcakes looked the same … which we love!

Frosting the Harvest Marble Cupcakes

We made a batch of our Best Chocolate Buttercream Frosting.  Then we used a Wilton 2D Frosting Tip to make this frosting swirl but you could also just apply the frosting with a knife.
