  3. Make the vanilla cake batter: In a large bowl, combine the butter and sugar. Add in the eggs. Add flour, baking powder, and salt. Add milk and pure vanilla extract. Mix well. 
  4. Pour most of the batter separately into two greased or lined cake pans.
  5. Swirl the remaining of the yellow cake mix in the chocolate batter pan, and swirl the remaining of the chocolate cake mix in the yellow batter pan.
  6. You can use a knife to swirl the batter to incorporate a marble effect.
  7. Bake in oven for around 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  8. You can make buttercream frosting, chocolate frosting, and/or cream cheese frosting to go along with these cakes. Combine the frosting ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. You will need to double or triple the ingredient amounts if you use just one type of frosting. 
  9. Once the cakes are cool, remove them from the pans and place one on top of the other with frosting in between them and completely cover the cakes in frosting.
