Step 2...Mix the yellow cake mix, vanilla instant pudding mix, 4 large eggs, 1/2-cup vegetable oil 1/2-cup cold water and 1/2-cup dry white wine in a large bowl. Beat well with an electric mixer for about 2 minutes. Pour into the prepared bundt pan and bake for 50 to 60 minutes. (depending on your oven). Or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from oven,and  infuse by poking the cake with a toothpick about 10 times in different places and pour glaze slowly over the warm cake. Allow the cake to sit in the bundt pan for 35 to 40 minutes before inverting on to cake plate.
