When I think of Belle and the new live action movie Beauty and the Beast I think: blue (Belle's dress in the beginning of the movie), yellow (her ballgown), and roses (the Beast's enchanted rose under glass). Did you happen to catch the final trailer for Beauty and the Beast during The Bachelor last night? The live action Disney movie will be in theaters March 17!
I wanted to make some Beauty and the Beast inspired doughnuts and for me that is my favorite flavor- blueberry doughnut with a yellow glaze and rose embellishment. If you're having a Beauty and the Beast themed party this blueberry doughnut recipe would make a great snack or dessert and you should also try the Grey Stuff... it's delicious.

These are the perfect breakfast and dessert! My two little sisters always order blueberry donuts whenever we get them as takeout from a bakery. It will be so much fun finally getting to make these at home!
