Blackberry Cake with Cream Cheese Filling

By Deneece Gursky Smokeygirlxo


One of my daughters coworkers whom is like an adopted son to me asked me if i would make him a cake for his 21st birthday. I gave him a choice of three types and this is what he chose. The cake is wonderful and he passed a slice to everyone at work and even the ups delivery guy lol. (who btw told my daughter that i will now have a stalker because of my amazing cake lol) Anyway it has become well loved by both family and friends, not to mention random delivery guys ; )

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This recipe is truly decadent. I happened to have a pail of fresh blackberries - thanks to my friends at nearby Boyd Mill Farm - and I couldn't imagine a better way to put them to use than in this wonderful cake! Try it... you'll like it!


1 box
white cake mix
1 box
blackberry fusion jello, 3 oz.
blackberry yogurt, single serving carton

1 c
blackberry wine (i used manischewitz)
1 c
blackberries (fresh, not frozen)
8 oz

Correction: "FUSION" JELLO..My fingers got ahead of my brain.I can not tell you what it is and does,since I have not used it yet..curious just what it does that plain old JELLO doesn't!
