Funnel Cakes~Frugal Gift Idea

* I love to bake for Christmas! I bake the whole month~to give away to friends and family. Of course we have a nibble or two along the way in the Shindorf household! Yum~I am dreaming of fudge. I love chocolate fudge with a glass of ice cold milk.  This year with my trip I am simplifying Christmas. I will be gone half of the month falling in love with my new grandson so I am making mixes to give away instead of all my baking. The great thing about giving a nice mix is~ during the Christmas rush we have so many goodies. A mix can be used after the season during those long months of winter. It is a nice treat to look forward to.
I thought this Funnel Cake would be wonderful! ~And so cute in a nice bag with a funnel attached!

1 cup of sifted flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cinnamon

In a bowl mix all dry ingredients. Store in an airtight container.
