Orange marble/swirl cake recipe?

I'd like to make a white cake that has orange and/or yellow swirls or marbling when you cut into it.

I'd like a fruit flavour (lemon, orange, pineapple, peach, ANY orange or yellow fruit..) but would be happy with any cake as long as it's the right colours with the marbling effect.

It's for a wedding cake.

Please share your recipes with me if you have made a cake like this. Pictures would be appreciated too if you can find them!

Thanks folks!

    To keep it simple, make your favorite vanilla or white cake and reserve about 1/3 or less, depends on how much marbling you want, of the batter and add which ever flavoring and color you want then dollop this flavored/colored batter on the top of the vanilla in the pans and swirl with a knife or straw or such then bake as usual. Enjoy!

    I make marble cakes all the time. You can use white cake batter and any other light colored cake batter and dye it orange.

    just layer the batters and swirl (just swirl a little bit...dont mix) and bake.
