- 1 t. vanilla
- 2 c. water
- for the cake mix ingredients:
- 2 c. flour
- 2/3 c. cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 t. baking powder

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.
