I used a batter divider I found at most grocery or craft stores. Then use a small food scoop or a spoon to place a small amount of chocolate cake batter in the side of each cupcake liner. Then scoop a small amount of banana cake batter next to it. Pull out the plastic divider.
Bake the cupcakes in the oven for 15-20 minutes
Let cool before frosting
While your cupcakes cool, begin making
the strawberry frosting……
2 C. Butter (room temp)

2 drops of red food coloring
1 TBSP of Strawberry flavoring or 1 cup of fresh washed berries smashed
Add Butter, vanilla, strawberries to the bowl begin to add the powdered sugar one cup at a time and beat until well blended. Increase the speed to med. speed until light and fluffy.
Place frosting in a pastry bag and pipe onto the top of the cupcakes.
Decorate by drizzling chocolate fudge on top and a dash of candy sprinkles.
