Crazy Cake Mix in a Jar
2 C. flour
2/3 C. cocoa powder
3/4 t. salt
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1 1/3 C. sugar
In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, cocoa powder and baking powder. Layer ingredients in jar in order given in a 1 quart canning jar.
It is helpful to tap jar lightly on a padded surface (towel on counter) as you layer the ingredients to make all ingredients fit neatly. Use scissors to cut a 9 inch-diameter circle from fabric of your choice. Center fabric circle over lid and secure with a rubber band. Tie on a raffia or ribbon bow to cover the rubber band.
Attach a card with the following directions:

2 C. water
