Girl's Party Favors and Introducing Vegan Cookie Favors!

These were made for my niece's party. All the girls loved them and I really enjoyed making them. These flowers must be my favorite thing to decorate, I just have so many design ideas for them. We did Flowers, crowns and butterflies.

There was some kids with allergies to different things at the party, so I decided to test this Vegan recipe. They use vegan butter, vegan sugar, egg replacers, soy milk, and a little bit of vegan sour cream. You can call these nut-free, egg-free, dairy-free, and an added bonus of using the vegan butter is they are also cholesterol free! Sounds boring huh? They actually tasted really good though, and believe it or not some people even told me they tasted better than the regular recipe! They only difference was the icing colors, they dried much lighter than I wanted them to be, and the purple turned into blue, I think it had to do with the soy milk in the icing. For next time I will have to make sure to punch up the colors to make sure they are as bright as I want them.

All the cookies wrapped up and ready to go. The vegan ones are in the box in the back.
