    make 3/4 of the batter a lovely orange, and 1/4 of it chocolate with black food coloring added to make it black.

    Reason for that is that the black is usually sort of grey looking when baked.

    fill your cupcake cups 2/3 full with the orange batter, put a tablespoon of the black on it and stick a knife in and swirl it around once or twice, not more!!
