Here is what I would do:
make a white cake batter and remove like 1/3 of it and dye it yellow. Then I would dye the rest of the batter blue.Then fill your cupcake cups with the blue batter and drizzle the yellow on top. use a tooth pick to create the swirls. This way the yellow will bake and actually stay as a yellow swirl and not just meld into the rest of the cake in the oven.
The other thing I would suggest is rather than using food dye to dye the batter use something natural like blueberries (if you like the flavor) and then make the yellow batter lemon flavored. you can easily make a blueberry sauce by just boiling frozen berries and sugar and then straining out the lumps. It will be VERY dark blue, almost purple though.Source(s): Who said sponge cake?

I wouldn't try to dye the sponge blue, it will go a yucky green colour. I'd dye the sponge yellow and then make baby blue butter icing and have a big swirl of baby blue icing on top!!

make your sponge mix as normal
take out a few spoonfuls and colour that yellow
colour the bigger amount blue and spoon into cases as normal
put your yellow batter into a piping bag and push into the blue batter in the middle and squeeze, do that with all of them
take a toothpick into the middle and swirl one way, all the way round
bake as normal
