Here is the recipe for the Blackberry Wine Cake:

Bet you can substitute another fruit flavor wine of your choice:

3 oz pkg blackberry gelatin
3 eggs
3/4 cup Blackberry Wine
1 plain White cake mix
1/2 cup oil

In a large mixing bowl, blend the cake mix and gelatin thoroughly. Add the eggs, oil and wine. Blend on low speed until moistened. Continue on medium speed for 2 minutes, scraping sides of bowl. Pour batter into a heavily greased Bundt pan and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean. Cool thoroughly before inverting pan to remove cake.

Glaze:

2 cups confectioners sugar
1/2 cup Blackberry wine

Blend wine and sugar in saucepan over medium heat, bring to a boil. Ingredients should be melted and syrupy. Let glaze cool until it reaches the consistancy of thick syrup.Pour over cool cake.

I had this cake served with fresh strawberries and blackberries filling the hole in the middle of the cake. The glaze was poured over the cake and fruit. It was delicious!!

Thanks...I checked Walmart for the jello, but they didn't have it. I'm going to have to check around. I may use black cherry if I can't find blackberry.
There are a lot of different jello flavors that would work with fruity wines.

When these "Top Shelf" recipes are added to the recipe area, there should be a new catagory called Top Shelf cakes. This way we can find them easier.

I've always heard that when a recipe that contains liquor is cooked (heated) the alcohol is "burned-off" and therefore, children can be allowed to eat the food.

IS THIS TRUE?

I don't let my child have "lushed-out" truffles or liquor soaked cakes.

And, I'd be more concerned about my waistline than my blood alcohol level, if I ever ate to drunkeness. heeheehee -

And, just picture this: Cop pulls you over and asks, "How many drinks did you have ma'am/sir?" and your reply, "Well, I just had a couple of slices of the top-shelf cake. Really that's the truth, officer".

Haha, if you have ever eaten Jamaican Wedding Cake, you will know just how true this is! Love it!
Good question, recently there have been studies on how alcohol evaporates and these studies produced results very different to what was previously believed.

I found it to be a real eye opener.
