1-1/2 cups warm water ( 110 to 115 degrees)
2 T brown sugar
1 t salt
2 cups cake flour
2 to 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 T baking soda
2 cups hot water (120 to 130 degrees)
3 T butter, melted
3/4 cup sugar

In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in brown sugar and salt. Add cake flour; stir well. Stir in enough all-purpose flour to form a soft dough.
Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until dough has risen slightly, about 30 minutes.
Punch dough down; divide into 14 balls. Roll each ball into a 15-inch rope.
In a large bowl, dissolve baking soda in hot water. Dip each rope in baking soda mixture; drain on paper towels. Form into pretzel shapes and place on greased baking sheets. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Brush pretzels with butter; then sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Drizzle with Vanilla Icing~ 1 cup confectioners sugar, 2-3 T milk. Combine ingredients together and drizzle over cinnamon pretzels~
