Beauty and the Beast Tiara Sugar Biscuits - Film Release 2017

It's a tale as old as time, a new Disney film is released and I get over excited, but this time it's different. Beauty and the Beast is my ultimate favourite so you can understand the excitement and requirement to design these bakes - even if you're not the biggest Disney fan these taste delicious.

So be our guest, bake these inspired biscuits and wait with bated breathe for the film to finally be released - I'd love to hear your opinions on it.
