Jam Slam!, Member tabates

I was needing a way to use up some of the dozen jars of almost empty jams and jellies taking up space in my refrigerator. I dolloped tablespoons of different jams and jellies all over the top. I used peach, strawberry and raspberry (got rid of three jars!) to approximately equal the 1 cup of jelly called for in the recipe. I also made the cake slightly different by using about a third of a cup of sour cream and a little over a half a cup of milk. It was absolutely delicious. My friend and I nearly hurt ourselves eating it throught the day!
