Use one tablespoon for each batter. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the vanilla batter into the center of the cupcake liners. Next, spoon 1 tablespoon of the cocoa batter into the center of the vanilla batter. Continue to alternate batters using 1 tablespoon of batter at a time, until the cupcake liners are 3/4 full. Bake the zebra cupcakes for 15 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
