Marvelous Marble Cake

I love marble cakes...kinda remind me of my childhood days..
So naturally, when I started experimenting with baking cakes from scratch (several years ago ) I began a quest for the perfect marble cake.I worked through a few recipes and of course, didn't have too much trouble finding people willing to eat my "experiments.".

But this perfectly delicious marble cake recipe is my favorite - given by a good friend, and i'd like to share it with you guys.

Here's the recipe:

Preheat oven to 150°C

" hmm..what should i name my boutique "

A friend is opening a boutique that will offer not high end but a little upscale - upscale casual to be exact,( not those bought from Vietnam or China clothing), local and SEA (South East Asia) designers clothing and accessories (think Anthropologie or Urban Outfitters). focus is 17-40 yr old women.
She will be selling her own designed clothing too (jeans / business casual / going outs) -- mainly for Muslimah. She may has the possibility of opening multiple locations in the future, so the name should not be "site/location specific".
Here are some names that are already in use, but will give you an idea of what she likes and looking for: Piperlime, Anthroplogie, Paperdoll. She wants something unique . Some names I have "toyed" around with are: Pepperberry, Anik or Anique,Simply Chic,anthrəpäləjē and tag lines of: "fashions for the body - head to toe" . She's open to any and all feedback/suggestions -- Please help her!!

Thanking you in advance .
