I make this birthday cake mix in a coffee cup. You stir up the dry mix then measure it out ( I think one batch makes 7 individual mixes) You baggy that and put it in a birthday theme(or what ever theme) coffee mug. Then you make a frosting mix and place that in another baggy inside the cake mix baggy putting a slip of paper inside labeling it icing mix. Then place mini m&ms or sprinkles etc. on top with 1 candle into a bag. All contents go into the mug, wrap with tisuue paper and use that foil decorating wire to make a twisty. I amde on my computer a birthday card complete with cake directions. The best part is the child or whomever you give this to mixes it in the mug, cooks in the microwave and they can ice it too ALL BY THEMSELVES! It's been a big hit with my children friends.

Also some great jar mixes besides food is bath salts, and I have a recipe for bird seed treat that my boyscouts did for christmas.
