When vanilla and chocolate blend playfully, swirl together and make a painting of white and brown, you know that marble cake is on its way to be born. Not often, what you bake, looks gorgeous. However, for marble cake, it does best. You slice the loaf and the true art is revealed with the curvy strikes of vanilla and chocolate. Taste is unbeatable too. Happy me to share with you.
